Good morning. Remind me next time my sister calls and gives me emergancy news, to verify it with someone else!
She told me that Mom was going in right away for emergancy surgery. WELL, that wasn't so true. The surgeon had a full day scheduled so he was going to take her in last. It wasn't the kind of surgery that would kill her if it
wasnt done right then and there...like a ruptured something. So I go running
to the hospital, cut some little old man off who wanted the same parking spot, go flying up to the room, to sit there for the entire day while we wait for the OR to clear. She didn't go into surgery till 8pm last night. He finally
came out to see us at 9:45.
The doc cleaned out 2 abcesses, put in 2 drains, removed the internal battery pack and flushed everything with antibiotic solutions. She's back on IV antibiotics for 6 weeks.
Thank you everyone for your prayers! We have a wonderful community on here!
She still has a while before she will be out of the hospital, but she is a fighter. I'll give you progress reports as things progress.
