my mom's ok! :) her procedure went well. :) Get well soon mom! :)

my mom's procedure went well today. :) She called me this afternoon to share the news. :) it was so wonderful to hear her voice. :) my mom said, "they got it! they got the gallstone" it's such a wonderful relief, knowing my mom is ok, and is in her room at the hospital resting. god bless her heart. i said, "mom, you made it through!" :) awww! :) it's been a very emotional time, and emotional 2 day stretch, with my mom having surgery, and a procedure. it's a huge sigh of relief, knowing she is ok, and is gonna make a full recovery. :) i told my mom, "all of our friends are thinking of you, and sending well wishes" :) my mom says thank you. :) we're so very happy, thankful, and relieved. :) we were very worried and nervous about this 2nd procedure. it was delicate procedure. when they did the surgery yesterday to take out the gallbladder, the gallstone had slipped, and they missed it, and when they did a scan, they saw it was in her stomach. they did a procedure where they used a scope in her mouth, and were able to remove the gallstone. my mom's been through so much, and just hearing her voice this afternoon, knowing she's alright, it was like thousands and thousands of pounds of pressure being taken off, and it was truly like a breathe of fresh air. my mom's ok, resting, and gonna be alright. :) this time we've been going through the past month, has been so very difficult at times. lots of anxiety, worrying, and stress, but right now we feel this relief knowing the procedures went smoothly, and that my mom is gonna be home soon. :) we sure do miss her so very much, and we can't wait to welcome her home. :)
my family and i, thank you so very much, for your wonderful, and amazing love, care, support, well wishes, and for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. :) You all have been our strength that's helped us make it through each day, and have kept us in good spirits, and always comforting us, uplifting us when we need it most. :) You all are our guardian angels, and we appreciate you all, so very much. :) You all touch our hearts, in many wonderful ways :) my mom said, that there's a chance, she could come home tomorrow. We're not sure if she will be ready too, but we have hope, that she will be able to be home very soon. :) She's looking forward to petting our dog Tucker. :) awww! :) our spirits, our hearts, our love, our energy, has been with my mom this past month, as she's been battling health issues. She's so strong, brave, and courageous. :) She's always been a wonderful inspiration to us all. :) She's our super mom, and we love her, so very very much. :) Get well very soon mom! :)
A Total Family Team Effort! :) my family and i have been continuing to rally around eachother, helping eachother, and helping with things around the house. :) You all are helping give us amazing strength, that's keeping us comforted, and uplifted, and helping keep us going. :) here at home, we've all been continuing to chip in, helping out with keeping our house in order, so that when my mom returns home, she will return home to peaceful relaxation. :) we want her full focus to be on healing, and we want to help her all we can, so help make her healing process a very peaceful one. :) She's our wonderful mom, and does so much for us, and in this time when she needs us, we're banding together, and gonna help her on her road to recovery as she begins her healing journey. :) my sister Lisa and niece Alyssa did some cleaning in our living room today, i did some cleaning in our hallway. :) i did some laundry, and put some towels out on the clothesline today. :) my mom's been calling us at times, and she's so proud of us, and how we're taking good care of the house. :) my dad and Lisa went grocery shopping today. :) they cooked spaghetti for this evening. :) It's been a total family team effort here at home. :) It's felt so very different, without my mom home. we miss her so very much. i'm so very use to her peaking in my room at night and saying. "night Chris". awww! we can't wait until she's home. :) we've been keeping busy. :) Around early afternoon today, i checked in on our plants, it's a very peaceful day in the yard and gardens. :) it thankfully didn't get as hot as it could have today. it was in the upper 80's today, and did feel cooler today. It's been cloudy, which i think is helping the weather keep a bit cool, it's a great blessing. :)

Happy spirited nature smiles :) my mom is very strong, like a sunflower. :) She's faced some fierce storms in life the past month, with health issues, but she's keeping strong, and she's standing strong, tall, and proudly in the garden of life, just like how a sunflower faces those fierce storms from time to time during the season. my mom's our angel sunflower, and she's rising, and shining through this rough time, and the sunshine of love we all have shined upon our during these times, is helping her so much. :) soon, my mom will be home, and she's gonna enjoy some peaceful relaxation, and some sweet sunshine :)
