Update On My Mom

I wanted to let you all know that my mom is doing very well. The doctor said that she may get to go home Saturday, but it could be as late as Monday. We had originally thought that she would be in the hospital for three to five days, but as it turns out, the surgeon told us that it is a five to seven day time period in the hospital following a total knee replacement.

She is very ready to come home. She has been up and walking a little farther each day with the help of a walker; her vital signs have all been good too. Other than the morphine making her think that her spoon was hurting, she has done amazingly well. I am very proud of her. It is a very painful surgery to go through, and she has come through it like a champ.

Thank you all for your prayers for my mom and my family. We appreciate you all so much.

God Bless,

Ephesians 1:16
"I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers."

That morphine does some crazy stuff, doesn't it???

So glad to hear she is doing well and almost ready to be released! I am sure she cannot wait to get home!

Have a great weekend!

Sounds like she is doing well, surgery, no matter what kind is difficult and there is always recovery and most likely some kind of therapy necessary. It's good to hear your mom is doing ok.

So glad to hear that Mom is home and doing well.

Please let her know that, although I haven't been around blogville lately, I have been keeping her in my prayers. :)

So, what do you do for someone who's 'spoon' hurts??? Just curious ;)

Hey, friend!
I'm glad your mom is home and doing better. Keep us posted!
Loved these little tidbits! I think I have told you that I have the slit-end-picking problem too. And my family hates it. Why does that annoy them so much? Don't they know it's our hair???
I checked out your Myspace and Wow! You've got it goin' on! I have a Facebook, but I can never keep up. Not nearly as creative as you.
Thanks for your sweet words on my blog. That was a hard post for me.
I can't wait to see the cross-stitch!

Love ya!
