Mom had to have another brain shunt surgery yesterday due to the blood pooling in her brain from the earlier surgery. Surgery is always a scary thing, and when it is involving the brain even more so. She came through wonderfully though, not nearly as groggy and disoriented as the previous surgery, and she doesn't seem to be in as much pain either. Her throat is terribly sore from the tube put down it during surgery(about 1 1/2 hrs). We are hopeful she will continue to progressively improve in all areas. Of course she was ready to go this morning and this time we did have to wait on the staff to get her all signed out.
Here is a picture of her with her little Kozi today when we got home from the hospital in Wenatchee. She looks pretty good for everything she has been through!! And she sure did miss her fuzzy little pup.
I forgot to mention that Mom's birthday was on Tuesday.....
Happy 77th Birthday Mom!!
