This morning, we are working hard at getting the pain under control. Mom is on a post surgery pump where every 5 minutes she has to push a pump to get the meds. We are praying for some breakthrough.
The surgery went well, they were able to bypass the current bowel obstruction. The cancer mass is quite large.
I will try to write more later as I process the information from the surgeon. I didn’t want to leave you hanging. You are holding us up in prayer. You are helping us walk, stay focused on mom/dad/ and keeping me upright.
“Though we walk through the valley, we have no fear!”. My summary of Psalm 23.
Mom has been so thirsty the last few days. She is not able to drink water yet, but she is enjoying some ice chips.
My sister has sent a Christmas present each day til Christmas. These are the highlights of mom’s day.
Here is today’s gift (Mom even got up the energy to say cheese for the photo!):
She is such a strong, thoughtful, determined woman! Love you Mama!

and hope that all your loved ones make it in time to say their goodbye’s. Ginny
Just read this to dad in the hall outside mom’s room. Tears. We are so grateful for you two and family.
