My mother is in the hospital and the doctors are suspecting a connective tissue disorder. The test results are being awaited. I read about it on the Net and it doesnt seem so scary though it has no cure as such. But my mom's condition is critical (docs say there's clear danger to her life). She has blood in her lungs and her kidneys have failed. There are lesions in her mouth and tongue. There are lesions in her lungs also.
The test results will tell us what exactly this is but i'm dying of tension. So someone please tell me what kind of CTD this could be? Is it possibly fatal? (Docs are currently reating her for infection and they are giving her cortisosteroids).
