It’s always been my way to write my blog posts in the moment. Not much on writing ahead. And this writing via iPhone isn’t really my thing either. But I’m not going to skip out on another Thursday Doors post if I can help it.
Last week I couldn’t help it. My mother had just had emergency surgery with a 10% chance of walking off the table. And guess what?! She did it!! Praising the Lord for answering so many prayers. 🙏🏻
But now the hard part. Learning to live with some new limitations and maybe frequent pain. Maybe never fully recovering. Maybe a lessened life expectancy. Some very real unknowns right now. And since she’s still in the hospital, we have daily trips to visit and hope for news thru the nurses or, on occasion, talking to the doctor firsthand. Doctors and nurses face so many challenges these days and we feel pretty blessed we have one locally who was here that day to perform her life/saving operation.
My mother likes her privacy so I’ll keep the particulars under wraps for awhile. Just send some good thoughts and prayers if you’re so inclined. We can sure use them! Not ready for her to give up yet. Til later, I am sharing some views of the hospital.
