I have been meaning to post this since early Saturday morning, but something kept keeping me from getting to it and I found out why. I am still a bit on the tardy side, but life has it's speed bumps and one takes what one can get when one gets it
Mom had her surgery on Friday morning. It was late Friday when we got any news at all. Ward/floor nurses are busy and sometimes hospital policy gets in the way of common sense as well, but be that as it might, the good news was that Mom survived the surgery, was in recovery and due to be relocated to a post-op bed shortly. Got hold of her on Saturday for a couple minutes, but she was still pretty groggy. The surgery was done laproscopically, but that does not reduce the pain level much.. just the type of pain I guess. Anyhoosie, they had her on a epidural w/arterial IV and the pain was becoming manageable. She was not really lucid and the docs still had yet to report anything.
Sunday, Mom was a lot better and we had a chat about the surgery and the outcome. The docs sent the samples off to be biopsied to see if they were malignant, they think not and they also think that they got it all. But do not know for certain yet. They did decide however that she would be in hospital not for the 3 to 5 days as originally envisioned but most likely 10 for sure maybe a few days more depending on results and what else they decide to do I guess.
Given that she has next to no house support.. my brothers are both well how shall say, challenged in the support department.
I suspect that may have something to do with it.
But the surprising thing is was the remarks she made to me about what she felt. She said she felt that there were literally thousands of prayers being said for her and the feeling was very strong. Very similar to June of 2005 when she had her By-Pass surgery after mine. She wanted me to pass along a special thank you to my friends at farmallcub.com for all of their prayers and support. Funny that she said that, cause I did NOT tell her that I had posted a request for prayers for her. I was kind of dumbfounded, but only for a few moments.. as I knew what she meant.
So, all, from my Mom, "a very heartfelt and deeply emotional Thank You each and every one of you, for saying a prayer for me - Love Doris "
Her words, not mine.....
She says less than me..
However this one is from Em and I... Thank you all as well for giving such wonderful support to my Mom. Peace unto you all and all of your families (+
