Thank you so much for all of your well wishes for my mom. She had a surgical procedure done last night on her back. She has 2 compression fractures in her vertebrae. The doctor injected those fractures with a type of bone cement, to relieve the pressure and fill in the cracks. She was in a great deal of pain all day yesterday and was miserable. Her surgery was at 7:00pm so by 9:00 she was finished and sleeping peacefully when Steve and I left. I hope that she feels better today...the doctor said the results would be fast and her pain should subside in the next few days.

I hope that everyone has a great Saturday!

Big hugs to all of you! XOXOXOXOX

Sorry to hear about your mom. I've been at the hospital with mine recently, too! Nerve wracking.

I found your blog from Midlife Jobhunter. She says you're the book expert. I'll be back because I'm trying to find good books for my mom. She and I don't have the same taste in books so I'm always at a loss of what to recommend. Maybe you'll hit on just the thing!

Sorry to hear about your Mom - I hope she finds relief from the pain soon - I live with chronic back (spine) pain and I know how horrible it feels.

I'm glad to hear your mom is doing well after her procedure. I hope today finds her even better. Make sure to let us know. Hugs to you.
