Re: [MOL] Susan and Carol of M.



Susan, what is your mother's doctor saying about this?  I could be wrong;
but I still feel it is either kidney or bladder.  If it is an infection,
then she needs either another antibiotic or stronger antibiotic.  I don't
like bringing this up; but it could be Renal Failure due to cancer and its
stage.  In any event she needs to be seen immediately.  Warmly, your friend,
lillian
