Update on Mom

It's been interesting.....

On Friday afternoon, Mom was taken in to have some gall stones removed from her bile duct. Get this, her gall bladder had been removed 40 years ago! Apparently back then they did not remove the bile duct with it, so if you had some microscopic stones in there, they would just keep growing!

So the good news is that her color is good and physically she is much better. The bad news is that because of the anesthetic, the hallucinations (you remember last summer?) have recurred and are worse than ever. They're not controlled as of last night. Fortunately she's too weak to get out of bed and they have a monitor on her or we'd really be in trouble.

So I don't have a clue where we go from here. I've contacted the people I need to talk to about getting her into the Nursing area where she lives. Of course, you can do nothing on the weekend. Just hope it's not a hassle to get her in.

Bless her heart. She's so tired and it's so sad. I'll keep you posted....

Oh my! I can't believe that you can get gall stones with no gall bladder. I certainly will be praying for your mom and hope the hallucinations stop soon.

Hi Glenna,
So sorry to hear about your mom. I hope things get resolved soon.
I wanted to tell you that I made your Sailing, Sailing quilt for my new grandson, Asher. I posted about it on my blog today, and had done a WIP about it a few weeks ago.
I had looked high and low for a 'boy' quilt to make and yours was perfect. Thank you.
