My mom's surgery went really well and she's doing fine!! She's home now resting comfortably. Hubby and I got to the hospital just in time to see her before she went into surgery and she cried her heart out the whole way there. I felt so sorry for her but she came out great!! She's still with us, contrary to what she thought would happen!! Hubby and I are exhausted from lack of sleep from worrying so much about her state of mind and having to get up and rush to get dressed to go see her so we're both taking the rest of the day off to catch up on some sleep and then we're going to treat ourselves to the pool that we have when we get up for it's right hot outside now considering the humidity it so high and the temperature hasn't reached it's peak yet. Ugh. But the rest and then the pool will do us a lot of good. Thank you all for your prayers!! Bless each and every one of you!! I sincerely mean that!! You all are the best!!

Great news to hear. I saw the other discussion but did not respond. But my thoughts and prayers were with you all. When my dad had surgery all he ever said was "whatever". Hahaha! Have a great swim also. By the way, I am meeting GardenGerty & her husband tongiht for dinner. They are in Minnesota visiting their daughter. I've lots ready to harvest. Meet me at my farm. Not hot here and no humidty nor rain for ever it seems. My garden and flower beds need rain badly. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Thanks Grandpa Bob. It has been an emotional roller coaster the last two days and I'm soooooo glad it's over for at least another 6 months. Mom said that if she makes it through it this time, she won't be so scared the next time. I'm holding her to that for she had me so frazzled with her being so upset. Wish she could be a little more laid back like your dad. Not feeling-less but not so up tight like she is. That's great that you're meeting GG!! Lucky you!! Maybe some day I'll be lucky to get to meet her too. We'll see how things go. She's been a real strong shoulder friend to me for a couple of years and I don't forget things like that easily. Wish we could send you the damned rain!! lol We're way above the average or what we need we certainly don't need any more right now.

Dinner was great, and I just wish I could travel all over the country meeting my MyLot friends. Swim some strokes for me tomorrow. I am off to find socks to sleep in, Minnesota is cold at night.

I know and agree GG but if it's ever meant to be then we will meet but if not, we can still love one another from afar. lol But I still hope to meet you one day and grandpa Bob too.

I guess I've been so out of touch, that I didn't realize that she was having surgery. Glad to hear she came out fine. Was talking to the roomie about swimming as exercise, so we are going to look into it this weekend, at a free city pool.

Mom told me about it but I had forgotten. My mind is swirling with so much with other things that I forgot about it and I didn't know mom was THAT scared. shocked I knew she wasn't looking forward to it but had no idea that she was THAT scared. Dad had called me yesterday early afternoon about it and how upset mom was and needed help to calm her down and that's when I remembered and I flew up there and found her in a mess of nerves, crying sobbing tears saying she's scared that she may die and so on and on..... I was so near to losing it again. It was absolute horror for me and got me pretty frazzled and is why I posted the discussion because I soooo needed the prayers. I would have told you about it sooner had I remembered. Maybe it's one of my airhead moments.

That is great news Cats! Isn’t the power if prayer great? I will remember this situation whenever my faith waivers and I begin to doubt there is a Greater Power. I will continue to pray for her speedy recovery. It sounds like you and your husband sure need a break, enjoy your rest and here’s to your mum’s health!

You bet it is!! Power of prayer is awesome!! When things were sooooo bad last year I kept telling God that my faith hasn't waivered nor will it as long as He stays beside me and helps me along with what ever I'm suppose to do. He was with me the whole time for I was able to keep a sane mind for the most part. A few times I thought I was heading to jail because of my outbursts when I had had enough but God was my protector and saw me through the whole ordeal. So never let your faith waiver sweetie, God is there for you, it's YOU that has to let Him in. Thanks so much for your prayers!! God heard them and mom made it!! Hugs!!

I have so much more to tell in my next discussion, I would've added it here but I was too darned tired to at the time but now I will once I get caught up a bit.

What great news. I shall certainly keep her in my prayers for a speedy recovery. BTW I know what you mean about the weather... here in Georgia it has been in the 90s and humid. Thank heavens for A/Cs!
