She actually signed it and is in surgery right now. I've got my fingers and toes crossed. My poor mom. She was snuffling like a toddler.

Maybe your mom feels like a toddler right now. I mean, really really emotionally feels like a little kid who's really scared. (((((Dinah and your mom)))))

Probably so. That's probably why I feel like holding her close and smoothing her hair and telling her everything will be ok, no matter what happens with her leg. In fact, I think I did tell her that and put on my best momly voice.

Dinah,
You are such a special woman. I'm so glad that you were able to comfort your mother. That must have been such a moment.

I'll keep her in my prayers and light a candle for her coming thru surgery easily.

And now, sweet Dinah. Just breathe. In two three four, hold two three four, exhale two three four.

Repeat as needed.

I wish I could enfold you in a Babble circle to help you in this time. I'm sure it would be a piece of cake to get a group of willing and eager participants.

(((((((((dinah))))))))))

I know your mom has tried you patience so many times, and yet you rose to the occasion.

Would that I had half your strength.

She had to have all her toes off on the one foot and a bit of the foot as well, but that's better than her leg.

She'll walk again.

Oh, Dinah, I am so glad it wasn't as bad as you'd feared. Any further talk on the home health help front or are you taking it one thing at a time?

I was getting too overwhelmed. I cancelled with the social worker, and am just going to concentrate on trying to get my mother to consolidate her requests to reduce my visits to see her.

I know she'd like company at the hospital, but my life is a mess and I have to take care of that.

Good. I'm glad it wasn't as extreme as expected. I hope you get good support with this situation when she gets home. (((Dinah)))

I'll make sure I do. I don't really have any choice. I feel kind of bad about it, but I really do have to put on my own oxygen mask first.

I'm at the end of my personal resources, and if I'm to be of any help to anyone, I have to work on that first.

She's in good spirits though. Perhaps it's those strong painkillers.

Dinah-My thoughts are with you. Try to take care of yourself in this whole thing. It's great, though, that your mom didn't lose more of her leg. That will be important to her independence (and probably your sanity).
