Mom Update

Hello, all. I just wanted to put up a quick post to let you know that I may not get any updates out this weekend. This week has been rough, and  I haven’t had much time to play. I’ve had a sinus infection that has had me down for a couple of days, but the major thing is my mom. If you remember, back in October, she had another stroke that affected her ability to swallow. She was in the hospital for about a week and then in a nursing home up until about three weeks ago when she came home.

She was doing fine up until last Friday when suddenly she was not able to swallow food again. My dad and I took her back to the hospital and after many tests, the doctors discovered that her throat had begun to close up. On Thursday, they performed a surgery to open her throat back up, but they said it will take six weeks to heal. In the meantime, they have inserted a feeding tube so that she can continue to get nourishment. I was with her at the hospital last night and she was looking good, so I’m hoping for a speedy recovery. Your thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated.

If I don’t get an update out this weekend, I hope to get one out sometime during next week.  Take care and stay tuned!


  1. Your poor mum! I'll keep her and your family in my prayers. All the best.

  2. Hope she'll be better soon, and you too!

  3. I know this was posted a while ago, and you will probably be to busy to reply until your mom issues are better, but I just thought I'd tell you that I'll think about her when I'm praying.

  4. I know that you probably won't be checking the blog, but for what it's worth, I'm keeping her in my thoughts too. I hope she gets better soon.
