Just a bit of news.

My mom came through fine with the surgery and is currently in the high care unit. Thanks for all your prayers and kind thoughts.

Edit to add: High care is one step down from Intensive care - a nursing sister monitors two patients each permanently for the first 24 hours after surgery to ensure all goes well while the patients are permanently connected to observation machines and oxygen. They do this standard after this type of surgery here for elderly patients. It is normal procedure.

  2. So good to hear this news! Is the high care unit like an Intensive Care Unit or In Patient Unit? Not familiar with this term and want to understand the level of concern.

  5. Glad all went well and she's recovering well. Tell her to take it slow and easy...my Dad tried to do too much too soon and then he was miserable all weekend....healing takes time!
