Mom's Diagnosis and Some Homework Help....

I can't thank all of you enough for the prayers and support for my Mom during her mystery illness. She has finally been diagnosed after five Doctors. She has Erythema Nodosum. It is supposed to be a fairly easy diagnosis. Ha!!!!! You could have fooled us! She was in misery for about three weeks. After a cortisone shot and some other meds she is feeling great other than still being a bit weak.

As you can see Lexi gets quite a bit of homework help. Midnight is always happy to play with her pencil while Lexi is trying to concentrate!
I hope you all are having a fabulous Wednesday. We are supposed to hit high 80's to low 90's today!

I am sure glad you got some news on your mom and she is on the mend. Prayers have been answered. Lexi and Midnight are so cute. Cats just need to be the center of attention---ha. Cute picture. Enjoy this beautiful and warm day.

What a huge relief about your mom! See? God was listening all along! :) I've never heard of what's she's been diagnosed with, but sounds like it's an easy thing to fix and that she's already improving. How great!

Midnight and Lexi are definitely friends for life! Love the picture!

Darlene I'm so thankful that your mom's illness has been diagnosed and she's already feeling better. What a relief!

My Oliver also likes to help me out whether I'm writing, cleaning, cooking, or reading he's right by my side doing it with me. Sometimes his "help" makes the job take longer LOL!

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
Prayers answered! I'm so thankful your Mother has a diagnosis and is doing better. How scary not to know what was wrong for 3 weeks!

I had to chuckle at the picture of Lexi and Midnight *smiles* Right now I have Indy-bug on my lap snoozing and cuddling while I'm trying to type. He also loves pencils like Midnight. And plastic silverware you get when ordering take out. He'll manage to knock it off the counter then bat it around the house as it sails across the floor! Silly kitty! I have found packs of it under several pieces of furniture *smiles*

Sorry I've been MIA - work is the culprit. Hope you have a wonderfully blessed week!

Jackie said...

Glad you know what the diagnosis is. I hope it's an easy fix. Your daughter and your cat are very cute.

Hope you enjoy your day. Supposed to be warm here too...finally.

Midnight would get along very well with my Lucy and Theo - they seem to think they belong right in the middle of everything.

I am glad you all received a diagnosis. I will look this up to see what it entails, and I will continue to pray for your sweet mom.

Your Midnight looks exactly like our kitty Alexandria.

I'm so glad about your mom! Now that they know what is wrong, I'm praying she will be well on her way to recovery.

My Boo kitty likes to help, too. Sometimes he likes to "help" me wake up by walking on my head. lol!

Glad to hear they found your Moms problem and can start getting her back for feeling better. Midnight is just the cutest darn kitty. So glad my computer is allowing me to visit today. I have been missing ya! Take care~

jeanne said...

Hi Darlene, I am glad you realized my link is messed up. I tried to fix it and there is no way I will link three times and embarrass myself. LOL.

I am so happy to hear your mom is on the mend. Easy? I don't think so either. The poor thing. I hit the link about her illness and it took so long to link I will try again.

Lexie has a big fan who just loves to help her. I know Midnight keeps you hopping and entertained. Women and cats do just as they please. Men and dogs just have to accept it!!!

Love ya...Jeanne

Carrie said...

Glad your mom is feeling better!

Cute picture!

Liz said...

I'm so glad your mom got a diagnosis... there is NOTHING worse that being sick and not knowing what is wrong. So glad she's feeling better.

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Wow that is really interesting to read about what your mom has, I thank God they figured it out and she got some relief Darlene.

Lexi and the kitty are so cute doing homework togehter-I have pictures just like that with my cat when I was Lexi's age.

I bet you do get scared with all the flipping and jumping Lexi does but she is so flexible I wouldn't worry much-She looks like she pretty much has it together.
I really don't even worry about Tim, It's very rare for him to miss a foot plant. He will be alot more careful now! :)
His eye was swelled shut this morning. It looks worse today, but off to school he went! His girlfriend thinks it's coollooking (I laugh) sheesh...
Have a wonderful day,
Robin~♥

Earth Day Greetings, Darlene!! I was going to check on YOU when I returned from my walk---must be the ESP working here in the mid west, cuz you beat me to it!!!
So happy your mom has a diagnosis and is responding to meds. I know that makes you feel a bit better, too. Lexi and Midnight look so cute together. Aren't you happy you rescued that baby? It's in the 60s here, headed to 70s, then to the 80s on by the end of the week. OF COURSE, Sat and Sun, we have rain chances!! :)
Take care and have a great day. L, Dana

PS Her Show Choir is wonderful!! That gal is certainly multi-talented!!!

I'm so glad that your mom now knows what has been plaguing her. It is so difficult to not know.

Love the homework picture.

tam said...

Oh my goodness your poor Mom, praying for a speedy recovery!
I loved seeing that your cat has fun with Lexi doing her homework. Sooo cute! One of my cats likes to sit on my desk and watch me sew. If I don't make room for her she makes room for herself shoving everything off that is in her way! LoL! Hope you have a wonderful day-Smiles-Tam!

Shelia said...

Hi Darlene! I just had to check in a bit! Oh, I'm so glad to know your Mother is better and they've found out how to treat her!
Now that Lexi and the kitty picture is just priceless. I've been scolling to see what I've missed and how cute Lexi and her choir is! I'm sure she had a ball! They all look so cute!
I feel so badly about Stella! I had no idea we'd be moving so quickly with mother!
I hope it's okay to wait until next week to start posting about her.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
