Mom is doing absolutely super!! I think the difference between this surgery and the one in 2006 is that she was nice and healthy this time...she had been preparing her body whereas last time in was an emergency situation. She looks great, just a tad drunk from the Morphine but doing well enough that she was able to talk on the phone...first thing she asked me when she saw me was who won at The French Open today...glad that Jack and I had ESPN on in the waiting room or I would not have been able to answer that question.
We did find out that she asked for bourbon with her ice in the recovery room, so you KNOW she is doing well!!! She was drinking Diet Coke and asked for a frosty from Wendy's which I absolutely went and got for her. The "spiritual susetenance" bag was in my purse and she ate 2 pieces of chocolate out of that and it is in her room so that she can offer her visitors candy...thank you again, Carol!!!
Dr Santoro came to the room after Mom got to the floor to check her out one last time and deemed her to be doing VERY well!!
I know we have a VERY long road of recovery in front of us, but deep down, I have a feeling that it's gonna go great!
Jack and I are now back at 260 Mallard Pointe Way...Jack is enjoying a cold beer or two and I have my favorite cocktail in hand. LIFE IS GOOD....we now know that Mama Jane is gonna be around for a very long time to come!!! Like she said "ya'll better watch out cause I am gonna come back from this better than ever"!
