My poor Mum who lost her husband of 50years one month ago today, is now undergoing major surgery as I write this. She fell sick on Friday night, had some tests done in hospital on Saturday and it was discovered that she has a tumor on her bowel. Sitting by the phone again after waiting for news of Dad for weeks before he passed is really hard right now. I'm praying that Mum who is pretty frail makes it through okay, and has a good recovery. I have never felt so far away from my family as I do now.
Please keep us in your thoughts today as your go about your lives.
Update: Mum came through the OP with flying colours, I'm so happy she is on the mend.
