Moms doctor visit

Thank you to all who responded, I took mom to the doc and he diagnosed her with fluid in the lungs (a little) mild emphysema and said a URI to boot...they first did a xray and thought it was an aneurysm behind her lungs causing shortness of breath, so he sent her to get a CT scan, and thankfully an aneurysm is not the cause...he gave her hydrochlorot to get the fluid from her lungs, and amitriptylin to help her sleep better---it's just so weird for my mom to be talking like she just pounded a fifth of whiskey and is drunk.....hopefully the meds will make her all well and back to her normal self again soon.....thanks all

Re: Moms doctor visit

Sorry your mom is sick but really glad you got to the source of it. Hopefully with treatment she'll be back to her old self again.

Love, Barb
