Update on Mom!

Well, my mom's surgery was scheduled for June 2nd, but a couple of weeks ago she was having an attack that wouldn't go away so they moved her surgery up to the 13th. We went to Gainesville Wednesday night and were at the hospital by 10. They were supposed to have her in the back by 12, but they didn't call her back until 3. The surgery went well and the doctors came out to tell me so around 5:15. They said that her gallbladder was severely infected, discolored and misshapen. There were 4 or 5 stones and they had to open one of her incisions bigger because one of the stones was too big to fit out. She was in recovery for a couple of hours, but it took them an extra hour to get her in a room because of shift change.

Josh and Amy came down and got to her room just a few minutes after she did. We spent a couple of hours at the hospital and then went back to Josh's apartment for the night.

Friday Mom got discharged around 11 and we had lunch before heading home. She was back at work on Monday, just for half days but still. She's been doing great and recovering much faster than we expected. This week she's back to full time and says that she's 100%. She goes for her follow up on Friday, and we're expecting a great report! :)

Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone who said prayers for her and I'm sorry that it took me so long to post about it!
