Last week I had several tests at the hospital and clinic here, so wasn't able to see my sister much. Yesterday when I was there, the nurse was very, very concerned because my sister's right hand was quite swollen and painful to touch. It was quite obvious that she was in pain. I didn't hear anything last night, but the nurse was going to call Pat's doctor. The nurse said it was "Edema".

Here is an explanation of Edema:
Edema is swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in your body's tissues. Although edema can affect any part of your body, it's most commonly noticed in the hands, arms, feet, ankles and legs.
Edema can be the result of medication, pregnancy or an underlying disease — often heart failure, kidney disease or cirrhosis of the liver.

Ever since my sisters hip surgery she has been going down quickly and losing motor skills, is now incontinent, confined to a wheel chair, not feeding herself, etc. I know this is the beginning of the end I just don't want her to suffer, and yesterday she was. Please :prayer: for her! It was so hard watching her suffer so much.

Oh Lynn, I'm so sorry to hear that. It is always more painful to see a loved one suffer. We all will put our hands and paws together and pray that Pat will soon be pain free.

I am just seeing this Lynn. I am sorry to hear this about Pat. I know how much she means to you and how much you mean to her. It is hard to watch a loved one go down hill. May the Lord watch over you both and may he quietly take Pat home with him when it is time. Continued prayers for you both. :prayer:
