the day before taking my mother into the hospital, she was having hot flashes and a fever. later after recovering from that, she started and feeling pain on the right side under her ribs to the lower right back. after taking her into the ER, they diagnosed her with a bladder infection and pnemonia. she stayed 4 days in the hospital and was discharged after the pain went away. she came home for two days, and now the pain is back.

she is back in the hospital now. however, the diagnose has been changed from one thing to another. in the ER, they diagnosed my mom with pnemonia and was admitted in. the doctor in charge of this floor, diagnosed her with muscle spasm. i don't know what to believe anymore. i thought maybe it was a kidney stone or something, but i don't know what to believe anymore.

my mom says it hurts to breathe, hurts to cough, hurts being alive period!! she said its worse than going through labor, come on, she went natural with all 8 of us.

anyway, the doc says he'll just give her some muscle relaxer medication and send her off. i think there should be more tests done or they should work harder on this case. my mom would rather be dead now than to be alive feeling this unbearable pain. what would you do? i took her to one of the top 10 hospitals of the US, and you know the worst part about it is?! they don't give blankets or beds to anyone other than the patient! this is freakin' ridiculous!
