Just a quick note to let you know that Mom's hip replacement surgery went very well today. The doctor said that her hip was in pretty rough shape and that she will definitely feel better once she gets through the recovery period. I have never known my mom not to have hip pain, so I'm excited for her; she's been in a lot of pain the past few months, especially.
My mom is such a sweetheart and a trooper; she never lost her sense of humor today and already has the nurses charmed. She'll be moving to a rehab facility for about a week before heading home, where my siblings and I will help care for her. I still can't believe my 84-year-old mom got a new hip today; isn't technology amazing?!
I'm so grateful for your prayers and kind words. Thanks!
