My Mom's Dr. Update

My mom had her appt. with her primary physician today to follow up from her appt. with the brain Dr's, her procedures and her diagnoses.

Let me start by explain that this Dr. has been her Dr. forever, as well as my primary Dr. My mom has several health problems and each and everything Dr. S has caught in a timely manner and my mother has been able to have it taken care of to some extent. Dr. S has my moms and my health in his best interest. I trust him with my life as well as my moms. After reviewing all of her results he wants my mother to go ahead with the surgery to remove the aneurysm and the tumor in her brain. He says knowing her medical history, leaving the aneurysm and the tumor in she will have a lower chance of living vs. taking them out. Yes there is a chance of coming out brain dead, and right now we don't know the exact odds. Dr. S is having a conference with Dr. B (her brain Dr.) next week and they will discuss the pros and the cons as well as the risks and the success rates with the surgery she will need.

This is not set in stone yet, however I can tell you if this is what Dr. S wants done, most likely this will be done.

I am nervous, I am scared---terrified really. I am not ready to lose my mother or have anything happen to her, however I am trying to stay as positive as possible. I trust Dr. S, and I know he wouldn't ever suggest something that wasn't necessary and that if he truly didn't believe she needed surgery that this would not be his decision. God is amazing and I know that he will get us through this hurdle as well!!!! {you would think with all these hurdles were jumping over that I would be in pretty darn good shape by now....sigh!}

Please continue to keep my mom in your prayers, I will keep you updated and let you know as soon as I know something new. You all are truly amazing!

I knwo this isn't something you are ready for but if Dr S thinks its time to do it, I say lets go with it. You let me know what day and time and I will take off and be there with you and help you get through this. I know its going to be hard, but i truly believe she will get through this!!!

PRAYING, PRAYING, PRAYING!

Would you mind sharing your mom's first name with me? I have put her on our prayer chain at church but without knowing her name. I'd like to make the requests more personal and specific. If you don't want to share I completley understand!

Helene said...

Tiffany, you sure have a lot on your plate right now. I can only imagine all the emotions you must be feeling with everything going on with your mom. I will keep her in my prayers.

I had a chance to read some of your other posts and reading the one about your appt with the fertility clinic seemed so familiar to me. I had very much the same fears, same anxieties....I know it's a very difficult step to take. But just keep looking forward, moving ahead...doing whatever you need to do. God won't lead you astray...you may not understand at the present time why you're going through what you're going through but in time, when you finally become a parent, only then will you truly understand why God chose that path for you. Everything happens for a reason...I honestly believe that. I don't know why it has to be harder for some of us and not for others but I like to think that God chose us only because he knew how strong we are and how resilient we are.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for the comment you left. I look forward to following your journey to parenthood!

Praying for your mom and family, how scary but I know God will bring you through it:)

Shelly said...

oh my goodness. that is hard to swallow. my friends have been losing their moms at way too young of an age. we should not be going thru things like this yet. i would be in peices from just knowing she might be brain dead. but if God brings you to it, He will lead you thru it! Have confidence & know that we are all praying for you guys. Best of luck to her.

Angie said...

Wishing the best for your mom and for you to have peace with all of this. I can't imagine being faced with this, stay strong!

Rosie said...

I'm praying really hard for Adelle & you for strength. I know this is very hard on you both but she will get through this. Your mom is a tough-cookie!
