Sometimes it is really hard to be so far away from home.
My mom had major back surgery this past Thursday. She was supposed to get out of the hospital on Monday but there was too much pain and soreness for her to be leaving so soon so they have pushed it back to tomorrow. I just talked to her and she sounds like she is in pretty good spirits but I can tell the pain is still really strong.
So, since I can't be there for immediate support, I'm sending her a care package of little things I know she likes along with lots of positive thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery. I know she will be back to her regular, busy self real soon.
Now I hope Christmas comes real soon so I can get back home for a visit.
