This is Heidi, slowly taking dictation for my mom. (I’m slow, she’s not) She says, “I’m sorry I haven’t written anything for a while. I’ve been having pain issues these last couple weeks, but the good news is, I got the surgical collar off and am doing okay without it. I’m going back to CTCA tomorrow for more treatment, so it may be several more days before I’m up to writing much.
“Pain or no pain, I’m grateful for everyone’s prayers and support.”-end dictation.
She also asked me to write a bit of whatever I felt like sharing.
This morning, my mom drove for the first time since the neck surgeries. Turns out the pain in her arm (which has been gradually getting better), rather than any neck issues, was the greatest challenge. But she did run two errands, then came home and promptly took a three hour nap.
I have other thoughts and stories, but not for today.
Let’s do a Q & A post, focused on but not restricted to her health and related matters, like “How’s Mr. Bob?”. If you would like, ask a question(s) in the comments, and we will write a post of answers within the bounds of what we’re willing to share publicly.
I may get a talking to for this idea 😉 It’s okay though, she’ll enjoy the virtual “hanging out” aspect.
