Mourning Dove

Spending time in a deep pool of worry and stress is like hitting yourself on the head with a hammer.  It feels so good when it stops.  And, with that, I can report that my mother came through her brain surgery yesterday.  She was making jokes after she got settled into ICU.  And my dear stepfather, Igor, says that he asked her some niggling detail questions and she answered them correctly.  Good sign!

My sweet sister and her husband are going up there this weekend to help out.  They’ll stay through Thursday and then I’ll trade places with them.  Hopefully a week of help from us kids will get them heading toward recovery.  I’m planning to bring up a bunch of frozen meals (thanks to my darling mother-in-law for helping with that effort) so that they don’t have to worry about that at least.

Relief is such a wonderful feeling!

    That’s scary stuff Liza. I’m so glad that the surgery went well. Hope you can relax a bit now.

      Thanks, Lynne. It was a stressful few days to be sure. Relaxing about it feels SO good!

    A good exhaled sigh of relief. I’m glad your mom came through the surgery well and is now on the other side of that. Sending her best wishes for a speedy recovery.

      I sat last night with a headache – from the repeated hammer hitting – feeling so glad that it was over. Recovery won’t be a piece of cake or anything but still there really is nothing like brain surgery to give you a few sleepless nights!

    That is such good news, Liza. I was relieved to see it on FB.
