I know I showed this photo earlier but this post is about mom so I am posting the photo again. This photo was taken back in the early spring at a family day for her company that she works for. Chantal, Mom, and Me...Mom went back to see the surgeon this morning. Long story short....She has surgery scheduled for 7:30am Tuesday morning. She has a torn rotator cuff that needs repaired and he said the actual surgery will take about 45 minutes. She will be off work 8-10 weeks and she is NOT allowed to move her left arm at all for 6 weeks, then a few weeks of physical therapy. He said even when she does go back to work she will not be able to lift that much or anything.
Mom is not one to sit down and do nothing. She is already getting agitated just thinking about not being able to use it for so long. She can't even raise her arm right now and this just happened. I can imagine how stressed she will be by the time this is all over. She has lots of books to read but after a while that will get old to her. I told her that when the weather was nice enough we could go walking a little. Mom helped take care of me when I fell and fractured my legs so I will be more than honored to help her.
So my plan is to have her at the hospital by 7:30am, Richard will get Hunter on the bus. Stay with her while she has surgery, take her back home and stay with her that day until Chantal gets home from work and then she can take over. I figure that first day she will pretty much be out of it.
Tomorrow we are having Lexie a birthday party cookout. Nothing major just burgers, cake and ice cream just not up to doing anything too big. Richard will grill the burgers for me. She is now 14!
Also this weekend, I hope to get something ready to take with me to the hospital to work on. I have my hexagons and yo-yo's but not sure if I want to work on those or not. We'll see how the weekend goes, maybe something else.
So if you don't mind, please keep my momma in your prayers that she makes a speedy recovery!! I do love her a whole bunch ya know!!! :)
