Update

I know many of mom's online friends, and friends in real life, are coming here to find out how she's doing, so I'll try to be better about letting you know. Right now, I'm not sure what her progress is. Yesterday they said they were planning on moving her from critical care to progressive care, and that she was doing well. I feel like I need more info than that. She's pretty out of it when I talk to her, and I don't know if that's the anesthesia, the pain medication she's on now, or just her body trying to recuperate from the heart surgery. I feel like I need a reality check. I'm going to place a call to her doctor today and see if he will give me more pertinent information. I'll let you know, within HIPAA regulations. ;)

She did say that she misses you all and loves you.

I can't thank you enough for the updates. She was all I could think about while I watched Men in Trees tonight.

She will probably feel groggy for quite a while; for all the reasons you mentioned. Sure wish there was some way to make her feel instantly better. It must feel to you and her that this has all be going on long enough. All my best wishes to her. May her recover be full and swift.

I wish for a good recovery for MG. I do so miss her insightful posts and cannot wait until she is all settled in California with several new Holligans and the strength and energy to blog again.
