    She has linear reticular bibaslilar fibrosis of the lungs and an unfolding aorta. And another spot on her lung they donít know what it is. Her prognosis presently 3-5 years unless the other spot is something worse. 😥

    Iím very sorry to hear this Victoria. I know how close you two are.

    Iím sure she has a great team taking care of her - just wanted to say quickly that if she has usual interstitial pneumonia/pulmonary fibrosis (sounds like it based on the imaging report), there are a number of treatments including two relatively new drugs that can slow progression. Itís hard to have hope with such a difficult diagnosis but there are a few options and I will hope that one of them helps your mom.

    Thank you so much everyone. ❤️. Right now I think I am still trying to process and in shock. Today my mom is telling my sibling and my step siblings. My step dad is a mess he already lost his first wife . My biological father doesnít know I have to tell him. She told her sibling yesterday. Now it is just her cousins. She is one of the youngest cousins.

    Thank- you for that information Sophie, if we can slow the progression that would be great. Do you I know the name of these drugs ?

    So sorry to hear of that heartbreaking news. Sounds like you have a large, supportive family, so that's a blessing for everyone to come together and help her during this difficult time.

    I had to look it up. Is a lung transplant an option?
