A Message from Lillian

Hi, all. Mom wanted me to post a message to all her friends on her blog. She’s currently in the hospital with what we assume is a severe sciatica episode. They treated her with IV painkillers in the ER and the drugs did nothing. At 3 a.m. they admitted her. When I visited around 1 this afternoon, she was terribly nauseous and still in terrible pain if she wasn’t lying in the right position.

Hopefully x-rays or scans will show what the problem is and how they can treat it so we can get her back home where she wants to be. I’ll post updates when I know more.
