It was a rocky start to the day and hard for Mom to make the change.
Met with her surgeon this morning and she is scheduled for mid-to-late morning. It will be a 2 - 3 hour surgery. They will first try to go with a small incision and cameras but may have to do the large incision if there is too much scar tissue or other problems.
She has broken out in a big rash so they gave her some Benadryl. They didn't give her the anti nausea med to go with the morphine--but we've finally got everything under control and Mom is resting. We even listened to the closing markets report.
Mom is still on a liquid diet--but they stepped it up a notch today. We were pretty excited when we saw this arrive for lunch:
"Ooooo...this must be something good. Mom, let me take a picture for my blog." We speculated: Sushi? Steak? Fried chicken?
It felt good to hear her laugh, and laugh myself at "the big reveal"
Even so, it was encouraging to see Mom enjoy some pureed soup and this delicious perfectly toasted bread.
And ice cream!
