Interruption

Sorry to be MIA for the last few days!
My mom hurt her back on Friday and I have been busy at the shop.
This morning, Tuesday, she was still in pain, and her leg was going numb, to the point that Dad took her to the emergency room. Turns out she broke a piece of cartilage in her back between two bones and it has been pushing against her nerve endings. The back specialist will see her tomorrow and let us know if she has to have surgery or not!! YUCK! The one good thing is that it has nothing to do with her cancer, just her arthritis. The Doctor actually said it could have happened to any of us!! So we at least can breath easier that the cancer is not doing something funny! If you are new to this blog, my mom has been battling breast cancer for the last 10 years and is doing GREAT!
But she could use all the good thoughts and wishes you can send her way! She hates not being busy and never, ever sits still. I brought her a stack of magazines and a couple of books, but she is already chomping at the bit to go home, even with how much pain she is in.
Hugs!
Jenny

I will be keeping your Mom in my prayers. I hope everything works out (and that surgery isn't necessary!). Stay warm at the shop...
Love sent your way!

Your mom is in our prayers!! I hope she doesn't have to have surgery.

My sister had major back surgery last year (she's in her 70s) and her recovery period was QUICK! Sure isn't like it used to be years ago thank goodness!

Keep us posted.

Hugs,
Marsha

Jenny, I'm so upset and have just talked with Gail at the shop - hopefully you'll have a chance to call me and let me know where mom is and what her treatment will be. I hope so much that surgery is not required.

I was checking in to tell you Vanessa and I are hoping to stop by the shop tomorrow - perhaps we can go see mom too.

Meanwhile give her a big (gentle!) hug and tell her she is in our prayers and thoughts. Hoping her recovery will be fast!! You take care too dear. XX

Oh Jenny I'm glad that your mom's back injury didn't have anything to do with her condition.
