we were told at 12:39 that mom was out of surgery and we were with her in the elevator at 1:39 to go to her room. its 2:32 now and the nurses have just left the room. initially mom said her pain was at about a 5, but she just told the nurse its a 2 or 3 - but did ask for some pain meds. shes still a bit groggy, but resting at the moment. shes not a whiner, so i dont expect to hear much than an occasional sigh and "sucking of wind" to indicate discomfort. im going to be heading home soon to take care of nightly duties and then plan on coming back down and staying with her overnight.
everyones been great so far - lets hope tonight they dont have to meet the dark side of aunt Thunder Cat!!
... was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 11, 2013. This is a place for all of the people who love and care about her to get the information about her treatment and her personal experience of kicking cancer's ass, (sometimes from her daughter's perspective). It's hard to stand by and not be able to do anything to help. Writing gives my mom an outlet and allows both of us to share information during this time. Therefore, we blog :)
