My mum had major surgery yesterday. She had a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. The operation took ten hours. We took mum to the hospital on Monday night, and felt quite bad about leaving her there. Then we went back last night and were there when they brought her back from surgery. She looked much better than I had expected, but had lots of tubes coming out of her.

I then went back to the hospital after work today and mum seemed ok. They removed some of the tubes while I was there, which was clearly very painful for mum, but definite progress. We’re hoping that she will be released on Saturday.

It will be really good when mum gets to come home.

Glad she's looking better. Fingers crossed.

Pam - Thanks. I collected mum from hospital yesterday and she is very tired, but hs masively improved over the last few days since her operation.

I hope all is well with you.

Oh crikey. It's good to hear that she's home from hospital now but I'm sure she will need much TLC and rest. xx

Cornish Dreamer - I think mum is pleased to be home (despite my father not being the most flexible or supportive person). I'll try and take a couple of days off this week to tend to her every need.

TF - Thanks. Mum seems to be making good progress, so I am hopeful that the worst is now over.

I hope things are good with you.
