Mom is home and resting now. She is in good spirits (as one would expect from my mom). Just before I left today, I was able to help her put on some very good looking compression socks (extreme sarcasm). She has certain exercises that she has to do several times per day–movements that most of us take for granted like lifting our arms above our head or to the side. No doubt, she’s a trooper. We’ll go back for a post-op visit in a few weeks.
In the meantime, we’ve learned the value of Facetime (video chatting), as her two youngest reasons for fighting are a little too rambunctious to visit her yet. Today Maxton and Carter were able to Facetime with her. Maxton sang her the Easter song he made up, and Carter blew her kisses.
Again, forgive us for not answering every phone call, text message, e-mail, etc. We are overwhelmed by your compassion. Thank you for all of your love and support. They are the words that help get us through the day. On the day of her surgery, there were 303 site visits to the blog–so we know she is loved!
