PostSubject: Mom's upcoming surgery   Tue May 21, 2013 1:56 pm

Well, we have a date for Mom's upcoming open-heart surgery. We're VERY thankful that they decided to go ahead with this, because her aneurism has grown by 20% just since February. After her aortic rupture a year-and-a-half ago, she shouldn't even be alive. I sure didn't want to risk her having another one! She has her surgery on June 20th. It'll start at 7:15 AM, and they expect it to be around 12 hours or so because they have to replace her descending aorta, and it's quite a complicated surgery. Your prayers would be very much appreciated.

Thank you, Mimi! It's definitely a relief. It's also a bit scary - but the aneurism is scarier. Thanks again for your prayers!

Well, today is the first day of Mom's surgeries. They bumped it up because the surgeon felt that it is very important to get this done because the aneurism is growing so quickly. So today they're going to do a carotid artery bypass - they'll disconnect the main arteries in Mom's left arm from the descending aorta (which gives it its blood supply), and connect them instead to the carotid artery. Then Monday at 7:15 they'll do the open heart surgery where they will remove and replace her descending aorta. By doing this in two steps, they reduce the risk of stroke significantly. But your prayers are still very much appreciated. She has a long road ahead of her, and she knows it. She has a very positive outlook, though, so that helps a lot!

I'll keep you all posted as much as possible. Thank you so very much for your prayers!

I am praying hard and will be with you in spirit, my friend. I know it will be a long, tough day.  Your mom's positive outlook is half the battle.  She is one tough cookie, that's for sure!  {{{HUGS}}}

Of course. Feeling for you. cryB

Love  Thank you all for your prayers! She came through the surgery well, with no complications regarding the grafting and bypass - and praise the Lord, no stroke! She was VERY sick from the anesthesia, though, poor dear. She's sleeping right now, thankfully. I'm spending the night at the hospital, because she was just feeling so poorly - I didn't want to leave her in that condition. Thanks again SO much for your prayers!
