So sorry to hear about your Mom's health condition. Sending prayers that she'll be better soon.
Oh Jemima, it's so hard when our loved ones are in pain. I really hope the doctors are able to find something that will help her. I will keep both of you in my prayers.
My mom has severe osteoporosis. She is only 64 and all of the vertebrae in her back have collapsed. She has lost 5 inches in height. Pain is basically something she always lives with. The only thing she can really do is take Advil or other pain relievers to take some of the edge off. I hurt my upper back this week somehow and it has been so hard to keep myself motivated to do anything. It gave me more of an appreciation for what my mom goes through.
