My mom is having surgery tomorrow on her bladder. She has had a bladder infection for a couple of months. They tried two rounds of regular antibiotics which didn't work, then for 10 days she went to the hospital daily and gave her injections of antibiotics. It still didn't take care of it so they did c-scan and found a small hole or lesion on her bladder. It probably isn't overly serious but they won't know what's causing it until they get into the operating room. Mom, of course, it convinced it is cancer or something else really serious. I feel bad I can't be there; I have so many conferences scheduled this week there is no way to reschedule. I would, if it was supposed to be very serious (my sister called the nurse and it isn't expected to be), still I'm feeling very guilty about not being there. I will, however, go home on Friday night to be with her when she gets home. I will only be able to stay overnight and part of the next day but hopefully I can help to get her comfortable. Her recovery period will be 4-6 weeks. Sooooo, if you can spare prayers or send some good vibes her way it would be much appreciated!
