Crazy as a Loom

Hi this is daughter number three...

My mother had her surgery on Tuesday morning.  Her two hour surgery took four hours but went very well.  Her doctor removed both bone and scar tissue.  By Tuesday evening she was asking for her book and eye glasses, and a return home on Thursday was looking very good.  But Wednesday morning she began having some back spasms as a result of the muscle manipulation done during her surgery and was in a lot of pain.  So you would think that a Thursday return home was not in the cards?  Well think again... Despite being in pain, though managed some what on Valium and Percocet, she made the five hour trip home today and is resting on the couch with nurse Roy as I type.  DH made her staple mashed potatoes and my Nan is on tea duty.  It may be a while until she can respond to all the lovely well wishes an such as she needs lots of rest but don't worry she will be back.

Oh and the pressure behind her eyes is gone...  ; )

This is such good news, having this over. Do we need to plan visits by all her blogger friends for a while to make sure she takes it easy? Thanks for the update.

Deb said...

Thanks for the update, Morgan. It all sounds good as long as she has managed the pain in her back. Bless that boy, Roy. He will be a great little nurse for the next little while. Your mom must be so happy to be without the pain in her head. Sending good thoughts and please, Hilary....REST! Hugs

I am keeping her in my heart, and I know she will be better after this surgery. I am so wishing she could have her normal life back, and maybe now she will. She's such a strong person. I admire her so much!

Hartwood Roses said...

Wonderful! Blessings to you all, especially to your mom.

Nurse Roy has special healing skills.

MrsB said...

Excellent news - thanks for update!

jolly said...

I am a firm believer that the healthiest recoveries happen at home surrounded by the love of family, pets and caring friends. Hospitals are not designed to be restful so I think Hilary will be dancing a small jig and indulging her passion for weaving fairly soon. Thanks Morgan for easing our anxious minds with such good news. Sending lots of positive energy to all of you.

Gayle said...

Such good news! Yaaaaaay!

Thanks for the great update. I flew the coop a day early also after my recent run in with a back surgeon. Former nurses know it is best to get home and get back to the caretakers who really care about you!

Well wishes Hilary!

Carol said...

Thank you so much for the progress report as I have also had her on my mind these last few days wondering how she came through the surgery and how she was doing. She is one amazing woman. Sounds like Nurse Roy has everything under control and his 'best gal' by his side to watch over. You have given us a nice written visual of all the care she is receiving, deservedly so. Continuing to pray for her quick and uneventful recovery...

Teresa said...

What wonderful news. I know Roy is taking extra special care of her. Thank you for the update.

Country Girl said...
