well, mom was set to have 'aorta femoral bypass' surgery (it deals with the circulation in her legs and her veins/heart). they had to cancel it because since she is a diabetic and has high blood pressure, she can't have any infection in her body before they cut her. well, she had an infection (decorum prevents me from going into detail) and the infection is not cleared up so no surgery cause she's such a high risk. they're rescheduling it for 3 weeks. man... that sucks. now she's going to be nervous as hell all over again.

some of you were asking to update ya, so there it is. i'm going to bed now.

It's so much better to wait. The elderly are really vulnerable to surgery and the total procedure. She is in my prayers, CK. God bless your family.

sorry to hear that CK... but tell her not to worry- my mom had the same type of surgery about 2 months before my wedding.. she did one leg at a time-she came out with flying colors (and she has lots of health problems too)- just make sure when she gets it and gets home.. FOLLOW the dr. instructions and DONT get up to walk around- my mom thought that would help her and it just hindered her for a few more weeks.
Prayers are going out to here though~
