I came home last night after visiting hours. I had some appointments and needed the normalacy. I'll be returning tonight, hopefully in time for the last visiting hours.
I spoke with my dad and aunt. Mom is doing okay. They are going to move her to a normal room so we can be with her the entire time. But they want her directly beside a nursing station so we're waiting until a room is available. Surgery is scheduled for 1pm tomorrow.
I didn't realize it would be this hard to split my time. While I'm up there I'm completely involved in what is going on with my mom. But a small part of me is with my husband and children. Today while I was home, trying to make today as normal as possible for the kids, I kept thinking about my parents.
Everything looks good for the surgery tomorrow. The doctors will be keeping my mom a few extra days because of the tracheotomy, but are hoping everything goes smoothly from here.
Please continue to keep my mom in your prayers. Not just for less pain and a quick recovery, but also for patience. It's hard being unable to communicate.
