My mom had dental surgery yesterday in preparation for surgery date number three. Third time is a charm. Right?
I am the one writing the posts....her middle daughter. I live in Indiana and call Mama several times a day to check in.
She seems very bright and happy. Wednesday was not such a good day. The second surgery date was cancelled and she was very blue.
She had the dental procedure done yesterday and has not had any pain medication. Mama is a very strong, resilient person. I strive to be more like her.
The new surgery date has been set. It is now Jan. 8, 2013. Pre op will all be done again...for the third time on Jan. 2, 2013.
As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, we are keeping a close eye on Mama and how easily she fatigues. But it is remarkable at how much her spirits have changed from Wednesday. From total depths of despair to playing the piano, singing with her great grandson and laughing with family.
Praying her surgery will be successful and that she will thrive in the days and years to follow.
