Mom Update

Mom's home, and went for her first checkup today.  I was supposed to meet her, and just realized that the appt was an hour ago.  :headdesk:

She's feeling better, and seems to be progressing through her post op normally.  She's walking, and has completely quit smoking, which are two very positives.  However, the top of her incision site is, for lack of better words, bulging away from her chest.  Like, two to three inches higher than the rest of the incision.
I have to call and see what the doc said about that.

Another 5 weeks or so, and she starts cardiac rehab.  Hopefully she'll complete it, and things will continue to go well.

Thanks for all of your well wishes.....it really helped me to get through this!
