    Not getting proper nourishment, had to be admitted into the hospital

    Oh No

    Mom hasn't eaten in days, she barely drinks anything, and sadly you can't force a grown woman to do something she doesn't want to do. The stress that other memebers of the family are putting on her is slowing her recovery, she's lost all her hair so that has added to her depression. Hopefully she will get through this and be home soon, then we will have to take measures to make sure no one stresses her out anymore. It helps to get this stuff out, and it's really nice to have people that have had the same experiences to talk with. i'm hoping to get mom involved with this site, i really fill like it could help her.
