Sorry! I promised to do a mom update for you all!
Like I said before, she is getting around amazingly well, but tires easily.
Her leg and foot are still numb due to the bulge pressing against the nerve,
which is also what is causing the pain. Yes, numb and pain both from the same thing, but the pain is really around her rear end, then the leg and foot are the numb area. Mom has NOT been sleeping well, so they did give her a new medicine for sleeping that really has seemed to help, which I would think will help her heal more in the long run too! The best/worst part is, mom has been scheduled for surgery. Best because she will have the bulge removed which will help the pain, worst because she will be out of it for 12 weeks! Yipes! At least the weather is getting nicer, we can set her up on her patio and she can get a head start on her tan!! hehehe!
Her surgery is scheduled for Good Friday, so she will be in the hospital for Easter,which is really bumming her out, but you do what you have to do right!!
Thank you for all your thoughts and well wishes! I so appreciate it!!
