There are so many opportunities to see the hand of God in this last week…
I am safely home…Windsor is still in the hospital and in pain but hopefully will be released by Monday. They were able to get the offending ovary…but the doctor “searched” for other issues and created much discomfort but found nothing. Windsor has a very low threshold of pain so it is hard on her and the nurses attending her.
Her best friend has connections at the U of Penn hospital and has already connected Windsor to the “big cheese” of cardiology there – who was on vacation in Hawaii – but took the call. He said he would have been cautious for Windsor to have surgery Friday with an aortic aneurysm, but understood with the filter put in place and the ugliness of the cyst, it had to be done… so…now we are possibly looking at open heart surgery in November or December. I had already decided not to take events during those months so I could be available to my family! (My father’s 95th birthday and the holidays) God knew.
So amazing the connections God makes for us.
Being with her children was not easy as this is a very difficult time for them…but good for me to “connect” with them. Payson came through his surgery fine – he looks as if a shark bit his head! But he didn’t miss a beat! We went to the a museum the day after his surgery…they took one look at him and let us all get in for free. That was good because I would have been upset to pay for what little was there. I tried to keep up with the dishes, trash and laundry. Friends sent food. Todd’s mom and aunt came in tonight to tag team with me. (it takes 2 to replace me !!!)
Payson goes back for another procedure on the 15th. Will it ever end?
We’ll do this all again when Windsor has heart surgery…
I was very pleased with how my 16 yr old grandson, Walker, stepped up to the plate. I see such maturity in him – a tenderness and protectionism for his mom. Good qualities.
I have one week home before I am off again…need to make the most of my time.
Thank you so much for you prayers…they DO make a difference.
