My mom was recently diagnosed with pulmonary hypertentioin, which is elevated blood pressure in the lungs-and it causes extreme stress on the heart, and it seems it was caused by the radiation that she had for her cancer.
There is a lot of mixed reports on hypertension and the life expectancy rating after diagnosis, we have read anywhere from 2 -20 years. She has an appointment with a pulmonary specialist tomorrow and we should get a more definate description as to what is going on, but right now I am FUCKING SCARED OUT OF MY MIND.
Anyone who knows me, knows how close my family is, and I don't even want to think about how bad this could be.
So if you could just pray your freaking head off then that would be awesome.
