I just wanted to update the status of several things I've posted about over the past few months. First of my hubby has his prostatectomy 3 weeks ago, and all the cancer cells were inside the prostate; no cancer seen anywhere else in his abdomen. I thank God for this blessing!
Next has to do with my stepmom who broke her hip in 09/2018 and is in a nursing home because of Alzheimer's & cognitive function decline. She was seen by the Ortho surgeon 2 days ago and he confirmed she will never walk again and is totally bedridden, but they plan to start stretching her legs at the ones to keep them from tightening and drawing up. Over the past month we have all noticed that she can understand more of what we say. But more importantly, she is trying to answer our questions or respond to our conversations! Sometimes it's just a word or two, and other times she manages to get full sentences out. She still struggles badly to recall what took place even 30 minutes before, but at least she's happier and smiling more. I thank God again for this!
I saw my Ortho doc yesterday on my hip, which has been bothering me for 4-5 months. I have a torn labrum, a hamstring tear and a tear in a small muscle tendon on the front of my thigh. Because I'm unable to do PT (I can barely do minimal movements) he has referred me to the Ortho surgeon, who will determine if I need to be scoped & cleaned out, or have a total hip replacement. I'm trusting God for what's best. And I would appreciate all the positive support, suggestion, thoughts and prayers anyone can give me! Hugs love & prayers for everyone, and anyone in the central and Midwest USA states stay safe today! Yesterday's weather was scary & dangerous for many. It's heading out way in the East. 🙂❤🙏🌼
