The worse is over
My mom had a succesful surgery! A long one too. They took her in at 7.15 a.m. and they brought her back to her room at 5.15 p.m. It was the longest, hardest, more painful ten hours of my life. I experienced so many feelings I am still trying to sort them out. Fear of loss was the strongest.

They removed her uterus, ovelries, tubes, celvix, cyst, and some glands. They cut a piece of her bowel and created a cyst out of it and they attached it to her urethra and she will NOT have a plastic bag attached to her thigh with her urine. She will be able to go to the toilette like nothing is wrong!!!!!!!!

Of course, she will have to spend at least two more weeks in the hospital. And it will be a slow recovery, till the new "plumping" system gets to fuction. But mom survived the surgery and she is well !!!!!!!!!

She is in lots of pain. She has 5 tubes getting out of her body with all kinds of fluids and 6 needles supplying her body with other fluids. She is still in oxygen. But...did I say so already??? She is fine!!!!

The doctor said that she seems to be cancer free. He checked all her intestine, and all her other organs look perfectly well. Of course he will do the biopsies in everything he removed but told us not to worry, the worse is over!

I came home last night to sleep a little. I must have had 2 or 3 hrs of sleep in 3 days. And I am leaving soon to go to her. She had a horrible first night with tremendous pain in her belly. My poor mom, she was so strong. When she was moaning through her pain, she would do her cross (my mom is very spiritual and religious) and she would say...thank you god for being here and helping me, and she would sustain her pain.

I am so proud of her. So happy. Yesterday, as I was watching the sun rise from the window of her room, I realised that since September 1st, when she went to the hospital for the first examinations, it was the first dawn I was not up with the rush of panic in me.

I just wanted to tell you all. When the doctor came out of the surgery to inform us that things went great, I started calling friends to tell them the good news, and I really felt sorry I could not let you know as soon as I heard. I am so thankful for your support and friendship and prayers. You are right Denise. God hears!

Thank you all from the deepest of my heart.

I'll update when I get the chance to come home again!

Hello gorgeous. Oh I'm so glad to hear that all went well and the worst is over, and that your mum will be fine. I've been thinking about her and you all weekend. That's such good news! You must be so relieved. I'll still be sending lots of 'get well' vibes to your mum for the next few weeks while she recovers.

Thanks so much for letting us know how it all went, I know that in times like this getting on the internet is probably the last thing you want to do, I really appreciate you letting us know the news.

Lots of love, Kimba XOX

Congratulations! Your mom sounds like an incredible woman, and it has been a blessing to read about her journey and also how strong you've been--and how much she has taught you about strength, too, from the sounds of it. I'll be praying for her.
Thank you so much for sharing about her successful surgery here. It's wonderful to know that you can finally breathe a deep sigh of relief.

HI Argy

My name is Leigh and I met up with Lynda and Kimba on the weekend. they told me I just had to read your journals. They told me so many reasons why that I can't list but I can say they both think you are wonderful. I have to say I am sorry that I came on and read such a sad blog in that your mother is unwell. I understand what you mean about a sense of loss. Unfortunately my step father didn't survive and I have also lost a brother so I can tell you the sense of loss can be overwhelming. BUT in your case it looks like everything will be OK - your positive attitude will ensure that. I hope to hear some good news soon and look forward to getting to know you.

Stupid Blogger won't let me sign in. It's Denise.

I'm SO GLAD things went so well. I remember the pain my mother went through after her surgery and how hard it was for me just to see my mother so weak and small. It's a very odd feeling to suddenly be the one who is taking care of her instead of the other way 'round. Do be sure to take good care of yourself, too, because you can't help her if you're not up to snuff.
