Update on mum ....


Hello everyone, as promised a quick update on mum.. Yesterday mum went to the hospital for all her pre operation checks. They did all the tests ECG, bloods etc. It seems her blood pressure was raised but that will have been stress she thinks. Next comes the biggy, next Wednesday the 23rd mum goes in very early for her surgery which will hopefully free her from the pain and discomfort.Mum is though not looking forward to a long recovery period were she wont be able to do a lot and needs to be off work at least 8 weeks.The bad thing about going in on the 23rd is that on the 24th mum will have a birthday and will be " whisper " 60 years young. Mum said there was no chance she would postpone as she has waited long enough. Dad is giving her a party on this Saturday night at our local pub, so she has this to look forward to. I will try and post for mum's birthday because hopefully although she will be in hospital she will be able to see the blog from her phone. ( dad said he may be able to take the net book in ) Sorry I am waffling today but just wanted to let everyone that has enquired about mum know what is happening..


Take care all my friends with love GJ xxx

GJ, our human, too, had the annual check-up yesterday and as usual the stress of it raises the blood pressure a bit.
Please let your mom know that being the big 'six-O' is still young and not even near the 'grand 100'! :)
Purrs and hugs to you and your mom.

Marg said...

We certainly are sending tons of purrs to your Mom GJ, that the operation goes well and makes that Mom feel ever so much better. Being 60 is still a child, believe me. Our Mom is much more ancient than that.
Take good care of you Mum GJ.

Kea said...

We're sending all our purrs to your mum, and tons of universal healing Light, purraying all goes well and that she has a smooth recovery.

We also hope she has a wonderful early birthday party! Happy almost-birthday to her!

Thanks for the great report, GJ. Tell your sweet Mum that she is in our thoughts and prayers and that we will all be crossing our paws for a successful surgery and for a restful recovery. Tell her she must follow the doctor's orders so she will be up and about when the time is right.

Hope she and Dad have a grand time on Saturday. Here are some early happy birthday wishes for her too.
