When I wrote my last blog Does Mother Always Know Best I was in transit to San Francisco. I was hoping that my daughter will get better in a day or two and this horrible nightmare will be behind us.

When I arrived I found Stephanie in a state of intolerable pain that doctors couldn't explain. The MRI showed CFS leakage following a Lumbar puncture procedure. This was the very procedure I was worried about from the start. The lumber puncture ran into complications and has inflicted interoperable back pain.

It will be weeks before Stephanie will be back to her bubbly self. I will be next to her until she has fully recovered.

Regardless of my age, I know that my mother always knows best. She is always the first I call when I need clarity and guidance. I hope that my kids will do the same.

This mother's day,  listen to your mother, after all she usually knows best.

Happy Mother's Day To All.

      Enjoy each day - I think everyday is mother’s day.
      Although I don’t have my own children, my dog Dora is my daugther and I’m glad that she’ll be spending it with me. She has gone thru so much the passed 3 months that each day is a blessing that she is still here.

    • Yana, my husband had a lumbar puncture a couple of years ago and suffered from a resulting headache.  We went back to the dr. and he did a “patch” that cured the headache immediately.  Is it possible that this may help your daughter?

    • Yana,
      How awful for you and your daughter. What doesn’t break us only make us stronger and God doesn’t give us anything that we can’t handle. Make the most of your time with your daughter as we all know we never know what tomorrow holds for us. Hold her tight and give her lots of kisses. I pray that your daughter will be on the road to recovery. I have a daughter myself.

    • Yana, Sorry to hear of the ordeal your daughter and you and your family have been going through.  With rest during her recouperation and you by her side, she will be back to a healthier Stephanie.  I know when my son had a bad bout with illness and I spent time with him through his recovery, my Mom was always there for both of us with support and love.  Mom’s are great and glad yours has been there for you both too.  Enjoy your Mother’s Day and your love for one another will get you all through this.

    • Thank you ladies,

      Steph is doing much better I know it’s because of all the support, prayers and positive energy that she received from you.

      She actually ate with an appetite and began to complain estatic so I know that’s good news.

      I couldn’t have asked for a better Mother’s Day present.

      This is my first Mother’s Day without my mother, and I am missing her terribly. Loss and change—the rhythms of life.

      We are all hoping and praying for the best for you ladies!!

    • My thoughts and well wishes are to Stephanie so that she may return to her bubbly self soon.  And Happy Mother’s Day to you, especially for raising a child who knew better than to just shake it off to nothing, but listened to the little voice that said something isn’t right.  You are a wonderful mother.  I’m sorry your day did not go as planned, as that was a lovely thought to bring all together in Vegas, but I’m sure your makeup day will be just as special.
      Well wishes to Stephanie, get better quickly.
      Happy Mother’s Day to you Yana.
      Stephanie
