SUCH good news!! I'm so happy to hear your mom is getting better and will eventually be in better spirits. (lol) I'm sure the brace is uncomfortable, but it's a small price to pay! OH, I'm So happy for you both! I hope Wilbur goes and swims in the Lake. he's such a dear little man.Originally Posted by Feralvr
SUPER NEWS from the neuro-surgeon big wig doctorMy mom's back is healing miraculously!!!!!!!!! She crushed her L2 vertebrae and he said it is a miracle she is not paralyzed because L1 twisted a bit too. She truly was protected by her angelsa whole bunch of them.He said she needs to wear the brace for another six weeks. My mom was a bit disappointed about that. But I told her she better listen to the doctor and take it easy. It is only six more weeks (she has made it this far with the brace) and if she pushes to hard she won't recover and it could be longer. She asked the doctor if she would be able to garden this summer. He said absolutely NO!!! She has some friends that will come over and help her with her gardens. I feel so sorry for those friends and they might not be friends with her after their visits.. Anyway, she will be able to go home next Thursday or Friday after one more doctor appointment. My brother will go up next weekend to help and then we will be going up over Labor day weekend. I already called my cat sitter and she is available. I hate to leave my cats, yet again, but they will be fine. The dogs will come with us as usual and Henry will go swimming in Lake Michigan. Maybe Wilbur will be feeling well enough to swim too. Thanks SO much for all of your wonderful thoughts and prayers. My mom said to pass on her heartfelt thanks to all of you here on TCS. She thinks TCS is a wonderful place and she loves hearing about all of you and your cats.
