Default good new/ bad news

I have a mass on my foot, so on the 12th I had to go to the University of Virgina to get a biopsy done. The Dr. decided not to do a biopsy, he said he was 99.99% sure that it is not cancer. They are going to do surgery on
12/26. That is the good news.
While there I got a phone call telling me my mother had a stroke. Luckily she can still talk. The Dr. said that she is one of the very few for whom the speach part of her brain is not on the right side, but is on the left. She can not move her left side at all. On either Sat. or Mon. she is going to be moved to a deffernt hospital for intesive therapy. The dr.'s think she may get back most of what she has lost. She will not be home for Christmas. We are hoping that they will let her out for a few hours Christmas eve. That is when we usealy do the big family Christmas gether. We are realy hoping so.
I only hope that 2008 is better than this year has been.

Sorry to hear about your Mom, Maw! Help her to keep her spirits up, that will have a lot to do with her recovery. You will be in good hands at the hospital at the University. I don't know if she'd appreciate me sharing a lot of details but they kept my sister alive against an amazing pile of odds. Thanks to them she is still able to spend time with her grandchildren. We'll be thinking of you on Boxing day. Tell Kibbe to keep us informed if you don't feel like reporting in to us for a few days.

I'm so sorry to hear of all this....and right before Christmas....not that there is ever a good time for tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family for a speedy return to the best of health possible.

My hopes and trust that your procedure will go smoothly. It must be such a relief to hear that the doctor is so certain that it is NOT cancer.

Though it seems like a terrible set of circumstances, it seems that you must have an angel on your side looking out for you and yours. Enjoy your holidays the best you can, and I, too, hope your mom can come home for the day, if only for a few hours.

Mawra, I pray that God will bless you and your mother and keep you both in his hands and send angels to watch over you.

Praying is all I can do when I feel powerless.

Good luck to you both.

Sounds like she's making wonderful progress! I hope she'll be able to be home for Christmas, even if she has to go back afterwards. Having the love and support of her family will help her a lot.

I know 2007 could have been worse. We did not loose Melissa in the wreck that we lost Jeremy in. I figure 2008 HAS to be better, it can not be much worse.

Mom was able to go to Terri's house Christmas eve. It was great! all of us being together.
My surgery went fine, no problems. I am not able to get shoes on yet, but Kibbie & Tiny(hubby) got me a pair of extra lrg. pink fuzzy slippers.
Mom got a probable release date of 1/11. We do not know if she will be ready, but medicare will only pay for 30 days. Medicare is the health insurance that covers retired people in the U.S.. They do not care that the 1 8 weeks after strok is critcal they will only pay for 30 days, no more. Mom is worried that she will not be ready to come home. We keep telling her we will manage. I hate the U.S. health care.

I am so relieved that your surgery went well and that you will be able to have your mom home soon. That is very good. (-: I understand about insurance. Before Christmas I was in danger of not having any next year (long story.) It's fine now but I was really panicking. It's just so tricky dealing with those companies. I hope your mom will continue to feel stronger every day.
