It's been a looong week but it's looking like it's going to end well. My mom who was waiting for a liver got one yesterday! It was a very long day that started at 3 am when my dad called that they had found a liver. We waited till 7 when they would take her down to the or. and we were told that at any time they could decided to cancel the surgery so every minute that went by we felt a minute closer to the operation. Everything was a go and into surgery she went. The surgery went well and she is doing well today.
I got to see my mom today and she was telling me all through her surgery she would hear little flutters they'd go away and then the flutters again. She knew her grandson Scott was with her and that he helped her get through the surgery. How that touched my heart.
Not only that but my dad who is not big on showing his emotions and will not ever talk about Scott. He had texted me this morning he had to run a quick errand than he would pick me up to go into the hospital. When he comes over he tells me he had been to Scott's grave and thanked him for helping his grandma. He said he told Scott that he knows Scott wants to be with her but his brother still needed her here and would greatly miss her.
I love that my mom is doing well. I love that my family thinks that Scott was with us during all this and that he helped. It so touches my heart.
and now I hope my family gets a break for awhile it's been a rough two years.
I am so glad to hear that your mom was able to get a liver. That's great news. I hope that her recovery is quick and easy. It's so sweet that your family was thinking of Scott, although I too may be a but cynical still in the God department. I do believe that Scott was watching over all of you.
Ohh wow! Crazy you are already on the other side of a liver transplant! just wow! I hope you mom does well and I am glad she found comfort in knowing Scott was right there with her! Sending you hugs and I do hope you all get the break you so desperately deserve!
All my love
How touching that your parents shared with you their experiences with Scott this week. I know that must mean so much to you.
SO glad to hear that your mom got the liver and that she is doing well!! Good thoughts and vibes that she continues to improve!
