My Mom is having a hysterectomy today. Her iron is VERY low and her hemoglobin was at 6 when she went in. they bumped her surgery from 8:30 am to 10:30 or 11 and are giving her fluids and a transfusion first to help the numbers go up. She has had a history of fibroid cysts, usually they have no affect on her until recently, they’ve gotten bigger and she’s had 30+ day bleeds recently and a 2 to 4 days break in between. They believe this is the best solution and she’s on board. I’m still worried. She lives in Florida and I’m in NJ.

 I’m a realist, not a pessimist. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. I checked flight prices already. But my Mantra for the day is: Everything will be fine, She will be here in March…repeat, repeat, repeat…

 please repeat my mantra and send some prayers just in case. Thank you.

**Update**I talked to my Mom this morning (1/15), she said she’s been up for a walk and has eaten. She sounded great, big relief. I feel better and can have a somewhat normal day now. Thanks for asking, praying and sending your thoughts, even if some of them were just invisible lurking thoughts with no post :p  ……I appreciate it nonetheless.
