Hang in there Mom……..

Today is D-Day, my mom is having open heart surgery to have 2 valves replaced and my nerves are on edge. For those of you who know my mom (Di Bear at Retired and Livin’ it) she has not posted since before christmas. Back in December she had a bout with a nasty infection that put her in the hospital for over a month and then in rehab for most of January and February for the anti-biotic treatments. Well apperantlty the virus mutated into something the docs did’nt identify and cleared her to go home. Well, the virus did’nt go away and within a week of going home the virus was back with a vengence and she had a mild stroke which put her right back in the hospital and they then found the leaky valves and the virus was going after her heart. That was 2 weeks ago and now after hopefully getting rid of the latest infection they are going to give her a proverbial valve job. So this morning in about an hour I’m heading to the hospital for a very long day. Wish her luck, she does have the best heart surgeon in Tennessee working on her so thats encouraging.
Her is mom and Chuck from a few years ago.

  1. I knew she had been sick but not to this extent- Praying for a successful surgery and complete recovery and for you and Chuck too.

  2. Heartfelt prayers that your sweet Mom made it through surgery OK, Ed. I have wondered what was going on as I hadn’t seen a post from her for so long. Thank you for bringing me up-to-speed. God bless your Mom, her hubby & you. Wishes for a speedy recovery!

  3. This hits close to home. I hope she feels better very soon. Sending good thoughts your way.
