update on mom

It has been a week since moms surgery and everything went very well. Since it was her first time having surgery, she got quite sick the day after due to the pain meds which she is very sensitive too as well as the anesthesia.
On wednesday she was feeling much better, but she lost alot of blood during the surgery so they decided to give her a blood transfusion to build it back up. They ended up giving her 2 pints. She starting feeling alot better after that and was able to get up for a bit and do some walking.
She finally got to come home on Thursday. :] I know it has been hard for her not being able to do the "little things" that we all seem to take for granted.
She has only been home for a week and is doing very well. She is walking great and doing awesome with her physical therapy. She does not have the same pain that she had before the surgery, she only has the surgical pain now. I'm pretty sure that her recovery will go quite fast and she will be back to normal in no time.
Thank you so much for thinking of her and keeping her in your prayers.
I love you Mom!

As I was saying in a previous post, my mom has been having some problems with her hip and is having a very difficult time standing and is in alot of pain. She is going in for hip replacement surgey in the morning ( Dec. 6th, 2010). She is really nervous about the surgery as she has been a very healthy person until this time, so it is her first time having surgery in her life. She knows it is for the best because if she doesn't  have the surgery than she would possibly never  walk again. I love her so much and want the best for her! 
please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you!
I love you mom!


just wanted to share next set of wood blocks I have finished. I think this one is my favorite so far. 


Thanksgiving was a little different this year for our family. My mom has been having problems with her hip for some time now and has been having a difficult time standing, so this year we had dinner at my house with me and my brother cooking everything but the turkey and the rolls. I was a little nervous at first because I am not much of a cook, but everything turned out so good! :) It was nice to be able to cook for my mom, dad and niece and nephews for once in my own home. I love each of them and enjoy spending time with them.
