She's 85 & having surgery on Thursday, my 20th birthday. We had expected her to have surgery later this month, but they got an openeing & bumped her up. It's back surgery....she has a "pinch" in 3 places. She lives alone in her house & it is very doubtful that she can recover there(drs. don't think she can), so not only do we have to convince her she'll be better off in an assisted living facility, but we have to hope the one in town has room! Gosh, I'm kinda freaking out. My mom had the same surgery a few months ago for one "pinch" & was miserable for 2 weeks, I cannot imagine how my grandma will heal having it done on 3 spots & being 35 years older!
