Grandma is doing well and will be out of ICU today! They had to put in a mechanical valve instead of the pig's valve because her artery was too small, but the surgery went well and she is recovering well. Yesterday they had her up and sitting in a chair for a short while and she ate Jello.
I have to tell you that my Grandma truly is my hero. She had the entire staff laughing and smiling right up until surgery. I don't believe I've EVER heard her complain. After surgery, it was HARD to see her in so much pain. The only thing she said is "it hurts SO much". I thought my heart would just fall out. You'd be proud though. I kept those big girl panties on and didn't cry until AFTER I was out of the room. I had to come home, but later in the day my Mom said she was again, having fun with the staff and just doing as well as could be expected. I'm AMAZED with what they do these days in the medical field, and SO thankful that I will have my grandma for many more years!!
Thank you SO much for all the emails, phone calls, thoughts and prayers. I appreciate it SOOOOO much.
If you'd like to send my Grandma a RAK, she would LOVE it. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll give you her address. It sure would make her day to get some well wishes in the mail. We are hoping to get her home sometime next week.
Oh, lots to catch up on today, but hopefully some stampin time tonight!!
