My mom is doing great!
The hospital discharged her on Friday, only two days after her surgery. My dad is having to remind her at home not to do too much because she's trying to cook and to clean. I mean, it's great that she's recovering quickly, but she needs to not overdo it!
It's hard being so far away from my family. Being a plane ride away sucks. I know Beau and I are very lucky that he could take four days off work to spend time with my family and that I could work part-time hours remotely for two weeks. I just wish that we could drive to visit my parents, like my twin brother and his fiancée can.
I want to thank all of you for the sweet comments y'all have left me in the last two weeks. I especially want to thank y'all for the prayers for my mom and for our family. We're big believers in science, but we're bigger believers in God. We know that science and technology are tools that God uses for healing.
I'm not sure when my mom's next follow-up appointment is, or when she'll start chemotherapy and/or radiation, but please keep praying for that. This is only the beginning of a long journey towards good health.
