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... ; )
