Does your mom have Limited or Diffuse systemic Sclerosis/Scleroderma?
Pulminary Hypertension occurs in 1/3 of Scleroderma patients and is the most serious complication for that form of Scleroderma.
2/3 of all patients suffer from respiratory problems, such as shortness of breath, coughing, difficulty breathing, alveolitis (inflammation of lung air sacs), pneumonia, and cancer.
Depression is also associated with Scleroderma.
I have Linear Scleroderma. I have it on my right arm, right leg, right side of my stomach and after years of it being dormant it has become active again and is now on my forehead. I have depression and I have problems with my lungs, I sometimes find it difficult to breathe around smoke.

Also, since your brother appears to be set on putting your mother in a care facility, may I suggest that you take a look into the facility your brother chooses before he gets your mom into one, that way you know that your mom is truly recieving the care that she needs and deserves. I am praying for you and your family, especially your mom.|

Thank you EVERYONE for the thoughts, prayers and kind words!
Will update, just running back and forth doing laundry at the mat...pre-emptive strike as storm moving in overnight and then the texas low hits tomorrow so between we are to get up to 20cm. Thankful for clear skies and dry roads today - 50 min. drive to hospital (city where used to live).
