 AS YOU KNOW BY NOW I THINK;

Mum had been in for two smaller operations on her left breast, for some tiny cell-changes. Then we went in and the doctor told us that the cell-changes were 15 different places in Mums breast. The doc told us that there was NO CANCER yet, but over time in years, it would develop into real Breast Cancer.
So Mum got into the hospital on August 5th and had the operation - a breast removal surgery - on Wednesday afternoon. It went well.
I visited from 4 to 7 this evening... She was doing as well as she could be.
We talked; she had coffee, juice and something to eat when I was there. She was in a little pain as the drain from the wound leaked out some blood and fluid....the doc said it was ok, and we talked some more.
Then I went home to tend to the dogs - and myself and an hour later Mum called;
The leaking was getting too much, so they wanted to operate again later this evening, to close the blood vessels. Around midnight the operation went on and well...
Over the next days Mum was doing well, just that the drain got to much blood and fluid.

TODAY MONDAY AUGUST 11th 2014

Mum Is Still In The Hospital.

The drain in the operation wound is still leaking more than is good, so they are keeping her..Maybe she will get home tomorrow, but we take one day at a time.
She is doing ok, tired from being at the hospital and from the operation, but all the nurses there are so kind and helpful towards her.

Balder and Nanna are settling in here with me  They are doing well too...the past week here has made them feel at home

I´m keeping up myself….willpower is a wonderful thing.

I WILL walk the dogs 3 times a day.
I WILL keep in touch with everyone that Mum and I know to Talk/Text/ Call everyday.
I WILL visit Mum everyday at the hospital, as we see each other almost everyday “on a normal day” – that is not a hard time for me, I want to do it.
I WILL tend to Mums canaries every other day…..and take in the mail and papers.

I WILL do all of those things, and a lot more that I cannot remember now.
I will do all of this, not because I HAVE too, but because I WANT to.
She is my Mum and I love her and I will do anything for her.

Oh sweetie! I'm sorry to hear about your mum. Sending good wishes and prayers.

I'm also going to send a card for you to take to her. Just a little something so she has something to brighten up her room or apartment if she doesn't get it before she goes home (which is what I'm hoping for.) :-) I don't think I have her address so I'll send it to you.

I hope your mom can come home soon. I was really hoping they got it all fixed with the second surgery.

You're a great daughter, but please, hon, don't over-do it. You need rest yourself, do not make yourself sick on top of everything else *hugs*

love you lots
