My mom!



This is my mom! I will write a little tribute to my mom this time....

Thank goodness for Moms --- I could NOT have made it through this surgery successfully without my mom. She took me to surgery, brought me home by herself (now that's another story, her trying to get me out of the car with no walker, no wheelchair, and I was totally drugged up!), and cared for me 24 hours a day for the first 2 weeks after surgery. By the time she left, I could get from the bed to the couch with not too many problems, so it was ok. when she was here, she cooked, cleaned, took care of Karlen, my dog, and just about anything else that came our way. My best friend Marilyn's mom died a day after I had surgery, so my mom was able to cook them a meal, deliver flowers, make cookies for them since I couldn't.

Looking back, I never thought my mom knew anything! Especially as a teenager, I would tell her she didn't know what it was like to be young, she was too old. Now I understand that's not the truth. She did know what she was talking about. I'm so lucky to have my mom. Mom, I love you!!

Exodus 20:12
Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God will give you.

Amazing how smart and wonderful our moms become when we become moms ourselves, isn't it? Hans' mom and mine came to take care of us after my first surgery, and Hans' aunt came after my second. Family is amazing!
