Hi there! Thank you for your reply and good advice. Yeah, Mom smokes it up alright. I tell her "Stop smoking Mom, it's bad for you!" .....but, she says "It's my only vice I have left!" I wish she would stop without me and my
younger brother getting on her case. She has several herniated disks in her back. She was offered surgery, but it would've be a 50-50 chance for her to possibly end up in a wheelchair! Oh no! She decided against it. I believe it is her lower back that's giving her the most trouble. I'll try to get more info from her and see what the specialist tells her.
