Just a little update that I received this morning. Mom will now be going into the hospital this sunday, surgery on the 12th and discharged on the 17th. The doctors office called this morning and advised me of the change.

Thanks to all of you for being here for us.

Kitty

..sorry to get in so late, been busy. Thoughts are with you two from Mass. as well.

Keep a good thought, my mother (5 went through this surgery (full) this spring and was back at work (70 hours plus commuting) as a geriatric physical therapist (tending to geriatric patients- just to clear that up before I get in trouble) in two months or so.

She'll be v-e-r-y sore, but the prognosis should be good.

I hope you two continue to do well, and we're looking forward to meeting you both next year.

Greg and Kelly

Our thanks to everyone for their well wishes and prayers. Moms surgery probably won't be til late tomorrow afternoon so I have been told as of this date. Mom has said she was sorry she ruined our camping this summer. I kept telling her, she didn't ruin camping a bent frame ruined our camping. But she just really don't remember much of anything any more. And Harley is really bewildered without his mommy.

I'll post as soon as I know anything. Thank you all for being here for us,

Kitty

Mom update: surgery went well, all external surgery, removed huge lump and lymph nodes. Now, a bit of info about yesterday. I called the nurse station to check on mom (as I had decided to not call her so as not to rile her, she can get very testy & nasty and when it comes to staying in hospitals, that attitude will show up.) Well, when I called the nurse said mom was vey confused, disoriented and scared, and thought she might feel better if I talked to her. WRONG, she started verbally attacking me, wasn't gonna let the nurses or doctors do anything to her. I felt awful, I tried to xplain to mom that she had to stay to have this surgery in order to start feeling better, She just kept ranting, I had to finally tell her, that I WAS NOT going to come get her, that she would stay there, do as the nurses requested and have her surgery as scheduled, her comment was "We'll see about that". I hung up crying & upset. I called nurse back, explained this to her, she said they would deal with her. This morning when I called to check on her, well she had pulled her IV's out yesterday afternoon, so doctor prescribed a sedative for her if she didn't calm down. Today was better, but I felt like a real heel again because I would not talk with her, as that would rile her up again. She went to surgery late this afternoon, all went well, nothing unexpected, was in recovery doing fine, kidneys functioning well and was going to be put in ICU over night as a precaution with her blood problem. I have spoken to the doctor & nurses, and we agreed that I will not be speaking with mom until saturday, when I can tell her that I will be there sunday to pick her up. We are hoping this will keep her calm and not pull out iv's

So, I'm really hoping mom is going to start feeling a lot better and able to motivate somewhat better, and that she will be pain free once healed.

Thank you all for being here for us,
Kitty

Kitty - glad to hear surgery went well - not happy to hear about her attitude.....but it does not surprise me......Leo and I have dealt with that with both his Mom & Dad....my Mom on the other hand is 80 years YOUNG - still lives by herself (oh I must admit she has a kitten) and understands medicine & medical procedures...so she know shat to expect when going for a procedure. The bad part about Mom is she lives 5 - 6 hours away (depending on traffic)...so I rely on friends to keep an eye on her.....and she will not move up in the "snow country" with us and yes I am her only living child!

Hope things go well for you on Sunday - try to keep your chin & spirits up!

Good luck!

Kitty

Prayers coming your way from Ohio. Will pray all goes well and I know this is hard on you as much her. My mom had this late last year. 83 years young. They did radiation after words for 5 weeks then on a drug for the rest of her life in place of Chemo. She is back up and going now.

We will pray for you and your mom. I know this is a hard time. Let us know what we can do to help. On line or off.

Take care and God bless.

John and Cindy

Mom update, friday 8/15 8:32pm Spoke to Dr. Rosenshines' nurse today around 3pm. Mom doing well, not eating much, told them mom is very very light eater, and to try hot dog, hamburger, chicken, mashed taters, corn. She has been having physical therapy. Her memory is really shot. She is doing well as far as after surgery healing. They are still aiming for coming home this sunday the 17th. They have arranged for physical therapy at home for a while. She has a walker to use, and does/will have a couple of drains to care for. As for chemo, that has not been determined/decided as there are some blood issues that won't stabalize. So, thats what I know as of now. I return to work next thursday, and trying to juggle mom care as my first three work days are meetings, which make it harder to do breakfast/lunch.

I also installed a new ceiling fan/light in her room as hers had stopped working, but I don't know if she will remember/notice. I have been trying to keep myself busy this week. Pretty stressed, but coping.

Kitty

Kitty...you are a very self reliant woman who never ceases to amaze me with your ever present energy and creativity. I know you will be able to handle whatever comes your way my friend. I have complete faith in you and yes you definitely have your hands full with the current situation but you and your Mom will move ahead and survive and ultimately succeed in this test of health and mental endurance. Sending all the best New England wishes your way Kitty. Keep a smile and stay focused on what must be donel Good luck to you although I believe you make your own luck. Bless you and your Mom.

Bob

Hi Kitty Keep your chin up. Most likely your Mom's memory will revert to its previous level when she gets back in the familiar and comforting environment of your home. And Sunny will soon be repaired!!!...sounds like you're on an upswing

Mom coming home tomorrow. I spoke to the nurse to make sure that was still the plan and they said yes. Then I asked how mom was doing and they said very well, and I asked if they thought it would be ok to talk to her, they said yes. So, they transferred my call to her room, but nurse went to room as mom didn't know how to answer phone. She sounded good, I asked about her pain, and she said it was better. I then told her I was coming to get her tomorrow, had to tell her 2 times, and then she kept asking "what time". I told her around 1pm. So, I hope things go well, and I did the right thing not sending her to a rehab facility because of her dimentia/alzheimers. I thought she would do better in her regular surroundings. I might have made a real mess with that decision. But, I'll just have to deal with whatever.

Kitty

Kitty you made the right decision. People almost always do much better when they can come home. Being comfortable in your own environment is the key.
When I was 16 I was nearly killed in an automobile accident. After being in ICU for over three weeks the doctors wanted to send me to a rehab. My parents refused and took me home. It was more of a hassle for them, ie taking me to PT every day, and the visiting nurses, bathing me, etc... but it was much better for me. Coming home was a fantastic feeling. Your Mom will love it.
