So it's been a while, which to me is a sign things are becoming
infinitely more stable than they were a month ago. :0)
Mom and Dad went to meet with her new surgeon this last Thursday
(7/8). They really liked him. He took a look at her healing incision
and just raved about what good home care she's had (Go Dad!). She's
just healing really well. While they visited with him, the doctor read
through all of her surgery reports and told Mom flat out that she was
very lucky to be here. That part really touched me when they told me
later that night. It really emphasizes again all the miracles we've
witnessed. The doctor also told Mom that she could start a gradual
clear-liquid diet. Mom started with ice chips that night and has
worked her way up to broth and Jell-O. She has another visit with the
doctor tomorrow, and we're hoping to hear more good things.
Mom has been doing really well in other ways too. She is really
mobile, but still gets tired easily. This last weekend she went
shopping a bit with Dad, went to a movie with our family and some
great friends, and went to Sacrament Meeting on Sunday for the first
time in almost two months! I'd say we're doing good. :0)
To the Hardy Clan - We missed being at the reunion and are anxious to
see pictures! We heard it was a blast and can't wait for the next two
years to fly by!
And to everyone - Thanks, always, for the love and support you've
shown us. We really feel so blessed to have our Mom still here and
know that it is through faith and prayer that we have that privilege.
We hope that this finds each of you happy and well!
