Tomorrow, my mother will be having elbow surgery. She broke her elbow over a week ago and have been living with a splint since. I assumed my mom would be happy to have surgery and finally take steps to getting use of her arm again. But, my mom kept to herself all day today. Hardly eating. Sleeping a lot. I asked her if she was nervous. And she quietly says, “A little.”
I try to talk to her more about it but she shuts down. She is not ready to talk. But her eyes show me. It hurts to see my mom in pain and scared. Nothing much I can do but try to keep her comfortable and distracted.
I hope tomorrow’s surgery goes well without any drama. Please keep my mom in your prayers.
Until next time,
