    I wrote a post a few weeks ago explaining what was happening with my mom. Well, yesterday, we went to the University of Chicago Hospital.

    Although we arrived very early, they took her right in. In fact, a good hour before her time. Although we were shuffled between here and there, we eventually ended up where we started.

    Except this time, there was not a diagnosis of bone cancer. It took a lot of doctors to determine this, but they 'believe' it is only a double fractured hip/pelvis. Of course along with extremely low bone density. In other words, she is going to heal. You can't imagine how happy all of us were.

    Unfortunately, I (and my mom and the rest of us) was expecting the worst news possible, but hoping for the best. Believe it or not, she was arranging her own funeral. I am not kidding. Of course, that was never mentioned to me before the good news arrived. Only afterwards. She didn't want to 'put us through that'.

    Finally, I received the best news possible. Although we go back in six weeks, life is once again hopeful. (Her last specialist before UofC didn't give us much hope)

    Thanks everybody for thinking of her during this time. I really appreciate it. Thanks.

    I remember your post and I'm happy to hear the good news. Obviously somebody was praying hard for her.

    Justthinking I am glad everything turned out well as I too remember your last post. I think this is somewhat of a lesson I get out of this......"live everyday as if its' your last"! As they say, "go hard or go home".

    "Whether it is work or play, get it in!"

    Take care

    P.S. Sorry for the street vencular. I am sure someone is thinking, "wha the hell do he mean".lol.

    I'm really happy for your mother and all your familly.

    A couple of months ago we thought my wife could have breast cancer. After a few studies, everything turned out ok, but you know how horrible those days are before the good news finally arrive. In any case, I'm glad those days are gone for you and your familly.

    All the best to you all.

    Sounds like you were all given another chance to get some good times in. It's not often we get a second chance. Use it well my friend.

    I wish you all the best.

    I don't even know why I clicked on this post, I was in fear of bad news. It doesn't matter if I have no idea of who you or your mom is, but I've been through that and it has become really ahrd to be able to hear about the crap that you were expecting.

    I am glad that i did read the post, and that it's a happy story, and I understand your relief because I have been through that too.

    It's amazing how wonderful that is...

    Good luck to all for the future!
