Mean Aunt Diane

a.k.a My Mother is an incredibly private person, so when I post things about her, I don't do it without second thoughts. My concern for her overrides her privacy rights. She is now back in the hospital for the third time in about a month. Although, she has a great team of physicians - all with great bedside manners - they can't seem to get her straightened out.

After two heart attacks that have apparently done a bit of damage, her heart and lungs are intent on retaining fluid.

It is very disheartening (no pun intended) for her to be so sick after a month. She is at the point where she doesn't want to call her doctor because she doesn't want to "bother him" and even the thought of yet another hospital admission is just too draining for her.

I know all of you have your own battles to fight right now, but I would appreciate it if you could please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

I would like to state that I own all rights to the name "Mean Aunt Diane". I coined the phrase over 20 years ago and would like for you to forward all proceeds you received from the use of the copyrighted name "Mean Aunt Diane" to your beloved cousin. Just kidding. Thinking of my M.A.D. everyday. Praying for you all. Let me know if I can do anything.
