Surgery



All went well today. Much better than hospital surgeries are supposed to go. Everything happened early. I did not get there before Mom was taken to surgery. The surgery seemed to go much quicker than it was supposed to as well. We were all there to see her when she got back into the room and it was a shocking moment for all of us-her pain was very extreme and it took a bit before they got her comfortable. It was very emotional. So hard to watch someone suffer knowing you can't do anything at all to alleviate it.

It has been an extremely emotional day. I am drained. Completely and totally. Continue to keep our family in your prayers. Thank you.

Praying for you. My father was a diabetic so I have seen the toll it can take on both the patient and the family.
May God richly bless you and your mother as you go through this hard time.
