FYI ~ Mom's surgery...

I mentioned a few weeks ago that my mom was having surgery. Today was the day. Everything went well and the cyst was benign. YEAH! I can't begin to tell you how relieved I was when I got that news. The nurse called from the OR out to the waiting room to let me know. That's the good news. The bad news, for now, is that Mom's respiratory rate was not as high as they would like it so she was put in ICU for closer monitoring. Hopefully she will be out of there soon. Otherwise she did really well. I'll be at the hospital everyday until she comes home - probably Tuesday.

Once she's home I'll spend the days with her and my aunt will be there at night. My mom doesn't have a computer so for the next couple of weeks my online time is limited. Which is okay because I'll still have plenty of reading time and hanging with my mom is pretty cool too. :)

I'll be sure to post the winner of the contest next week. Hope everyone has a great weekend. :)

  5. Thanks eveyone for thinking of mom. :) You guys are the best!

    She's out of ICU and doing better. Still a long way to go but she's getting there.

    My aunt and I have been spending the days at the hospital, keeping mom company. I'm surprised at how tired I am from just sitting all day. I'm just relieved to have her out of ICU.

  6. Leslie, I'm so glad your mom is OK! What a relief. :) The stress creeps up on everyone, no matter if you're sitting or pacing. Take care and I hope all of you, mom included, get plenty of rest.
