My mom will be undergoing surgery tomorrow afternoon to remove a tumor.
I’m nervous, but I feel like I shouldn’t be. (I probably shouldn’t have watched the last few Grey’s Anatomy episodes.) My mom and dad don’t sound nervous. They sound calm and collected, like they know everything is going to be okay.
I talked to my mom earlier this afternoon after she went for her pre-operation appointment. She gave me more details about the length of time the surgery would take, where they would cut and how long she’d have to be in the hospital.
She also told me that she was hungry, but she can’t eat.
My grandparents already know. There was no way to avoid my mom being gone for 4-5 days without them noticing.
Thanks to everyone who sent their support. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
