blah, blah, blah

I spent most of yesterday at the hospital with my mom. Thanks for all the prayers. I felt so bad for her. She got poked and prodded so many times. They did a biopsy of her lung to see if the pneumonia was bacteria based or just the lupus attacking her lungs. After the procedure they doctor explained he thinks it is the lupus. That is why her body is not responding to the antibiotics. She'll be in the hospital until Sunday or Monday.

I really enjoyed hanging out with her. It is rare that she and I are alone together. I really love her a lot. I told her that I was ready for her to make some lifestyle changes. I know I don't understand all about lupus, but the path she is on isn't working. Last night I spoke to a friend of hers who is a homeopathic specialist. Mom has refused to get "natural" help. I think I am going to write a letter to her asking she give it a try. I know many people who radically changed their life by seeking alternative methods to healthcare. I know I am faced with the fact I am addicted to sugar and I have some chronic problems from it. I just don't want to change my eating habits to help myself. If I am going to ask my mom to change, I need to be willing to do the same.

We're all going to visit her today. I hope she is getting better.

Change is hard, but sometimes for the good. I'll keep your ma and you in my prayers.
