Another bad day for mom as the nurses struggle to manage her pain. She is on a steady drip of narcotic which makes her foggy in her thinking and speech.
The doctors are leaning heavily toward surgery at this point to relieve her suffering. While she dreads the thought of a colostomy, it does seem that our options are dwindling.
That will bring her lifetime surgery count to 17. I think that’s more than anyone should have to endure. Why she has been cursed with a body that has always revolted against her, I will never know, understand, or accept as “God’s will.”
I am particularly anxious as I have a long-committed business trip to South America Wed-Fri. And until further notice I will not make plans of any kind.
