Cavemom is back to her old self :)
Thanks so much everyone for the well wishes to my mom! I just told her about it and about her new title, cavemom, her face lit up, and there isn’t anything better then that. Cavemom is back to her old self, full of spirit and telling me to go for it and enjoy life now. What a mom! I jumped at the opportunity to take the first watch after surgery and the first week of recovery. Holding her hand for hours while she was in excruciating pain, sleeping in a chain next to her so she can see something familiar when she wakes, listing to her describe her hallucinations and state of delirium was something I wouldn’t want to miss. It was one of the hardest things ever but with that comes a feeling of euphoria that can not be described. Tomorrow she will start 2 or 3 days of physical rehab, from there she is going home, thank god! My 4 brothers and 2 sisters will pick up the effort then while Heidi and I return to our adventure of a life time.
Also thanks everyone for the help offers, so kind!
