Well, we found out at about 4:30 yesterday afternoon that Mom needed emergency surgery to remover her colon or she would not survive. We were not sure that she could withstand yet another MAJOR surgery. We, along with the doctor’s help, were able to ask her if she wanted to “give up” or “go for it” and she said “GO FOR IT”. That is what we did!! She is a tremendous woman with unimaginable strength!!
The surgery lasted about 3.5 hours. The surgeon said that she did well. They took out her gall bladder also. She was doing well when we left last night.
This morning, the doctors told Dad that she was doing better than they expected due to the trauma she has endured over the past few weeks. They kept her sedated until around lunchtime today. She is still sleeping and groggy but doing very well.
Thank you for the continued prayers and support. It helps us and her more that you know!!
