Crying all my tears
I'm going to appologize now if I am rude, short or emotional the next few weeks. As some of you know my mom was taken back to the hospital on Sunday night. Some of her staples tore and we were thinking what was going to be a simple procdure to repair a small problem with the intestines yesterday was the answer. Well that simple surgery wasn't so simple. It lasted over 3 hours. When the surgeon realized it was more than he could handle they brought in a specialist. The specialist said the damage of the tear was so severe that he couldn't even fix it without chancing that it would tear worse somewhere else. So they tried to repair what they could and wound up adding her a colostomy. We were finally notified of all of this after 7 pm and that she was going to recovery. No way were my dad, brother, sister in law and I ever prepared for what we had to face at 9:30 when they called to the waiting room to have us come to her room with them. Currently she's on a ventilator because they don't want her getting pneumonia and she is so heavily sadated that they don't want her waking up and freaking out. So today my dad is going to work to try to take his mind off things. I'm going to try to find someone that can watch the girls tomorrow (when they are expecting to bring her out of sedation as of now). My sister is in Canada because her husband's grandfather died on Friday and the viewing is tonight. They aren't staying for the funeral tomorrow. If you pray please pray for Angie as all this happened after she left for Canada and she is even more emotional than I am. Seriously my dad and brother told the ICU nurse last night we may need extra help when she sees my mom the first time because of her having an anxity attack or worse. Oh and to top the whole day off my mom's 94 year old dad has taken a turn for the worse and they are giving him 1 day to 2 1/2 weeks left. We haven't decided when to tell her because we know that will tear her up even more than facing what all she's going to wake up to since she's very close to him and his Power of Attorney.
