Mom Watch 2008

August 25, 2008

Well, I am back from my trip to the Blessed Land of Iowa.  I went to visit my mom and help out around the house.  The thing is, there was not a whole lot to do, what with my mom being a lot more mobile and active than I imagined she would be.  I know this trip boosted her spirits, but seeing her doing so well really boosted mine as well.

She still has a large incision, but the wound-vacuum-pump-thing they are using on her is doing a great job of helping it heal.  (If you are of weak stomach, the above link may not be for you.)  Given the size of the incision, things are healing amazingly fast.  Go science!

She should be back to work full-time in four to six weeks.  And with a whole new liver, since they regenerate so quickly.


My Mom

Today my mom had four growths removed from her liver.  She is resting comfortably.  She is in the ICU, but that is standard procedure after this surgery at this hospital, so it is nothing to worry about.  I cannot wait to talk to her on the phone.
