  • My Mom’s Battle with Scleroderma

    My Mom’s Battle with Scleroderma

    Shortly before my mom’s surgery, (amputation of her legs above the knees), I called Karen, my childhood friend, who has been coding invoices for hospitals for over 20 years. Karen asked, “What hospital is she in?” I told her the name of the hospital, and she said, “Get her out of that hospital, ASAP!” She seemed frantic! She also said, “Get her tested for (MRSA) ASAP.” After I hung up the phone, prior to my mom’s surgery, I asked the first nurse that came into my mom’s room to test her for (MRSA). The test came back negative.
