    :(

    Tomorrow at 9:30am my mother will be going in to have back surgery. They'll basically be cutting out part of her spine and hopefully not accidentally hitting any nerves.

    Supposedly its routine and I know lots of (old) people that have had the surgery and its been great for them...but there is an unsettling chance of complications (especially considering my mother's medical history).

    So, whatever religion or lack of religion that you come from, please keep her in your thoughts. This is a REALLY sucky thing. Unfortunately she is losing the use of her left leg because of the pressure on her spine. Supposedly its going to all clear up after the surgery though.

    Thanks

    aw well we've all mostly survived hospitals. I'm the only one that got fubar from hospitals, so I'm not SUPER worried.

    you just think of all the possibilities when you see someone goin under the knife. Plus shes old and heals slowly. I dunno its just not fun times.

    I think I'm going to get out of class tomorrow and just go to the hospital. She has forbidden me from sitting in the waiting room but im so going to go. I wont sit in class waiting for a call.

    Thanks though Al

    All the best, my thoughts are with her, I'm cuurently going through similar with my ol'man who has a tumour on his spine (unoperable unfortunately), my sister in law- DVT and a diskectomy and myself (a fubar'd thumb).

    Keep your chin up and look after her and I'm sure all will be well.

    give her a hug and tell her that you love her. most moms want nothing more than to be loved, it will help calm her when she goes in.

    I have had 3 major back surgeries, I think she will be fine (medical technology has advanced quite a bit in this area over the past few years). Good luck to you and your mom. I can tell you from experience the worst part is worrying about it before the surgery..

    Just make sure after the surgery and during recovery that the nurses do what they are suppose to do and tend to her as they should and keep her comfortable- sometimes nurses are way overworked.

    focus on the "how much better off she'll be" and not the "what-ifs", and you'll make it alright, and if she sees you're alright, it'll rub off
