Update on Diana

Hi, this is Jessica. My parents were here in TX watching our son, Tyler. I know my mom posted about being sick. Well...she was very sick, more than she let on. On Thursday morning, she woke up feeling pretty bad. After getting sick a few times, she called her doctor in IL. He told her she needed to get to the emergency room right away. They ran tests, ultrasounds, blood work, all that and found out she needed to have a gall stone removed and needs to have her gallbladder removed. They put her in ICU Wednesday night and then yesterday afternoon, they did surgery to remove the gall stone. The doctor said he hasn't had one that hard to get out in 5 years and almost gave up. But they did get it out and on Tuesday she'll have surgery to remove her gallbladder. We all went up to see her this morning and she's still in a lot of pain. As long as she has morphine, she's OK. They can't do the gallbladder surgery till her pancreas and everything around that calms down-right now it's very inflamed. That is why they're hoping for Tuesday for the surgery. Keep her in your prayers and I'll keep you updated.

  2. We are sorry to read that your mom has been so poorly and in so much pain.
    Our own mum tells us that gall bladder pain can be very bad indeed.
    We are glad that the stone has been removed and will be thinking of your mom.
    Wish her well with her forthcoming surgery.

  3. Holy COW!!! Well now don't you worry. We will all rally round and cross our paws and send major healing pawers to her. Tell her we said to watch out... they might be a little powerful at furst, butt then she will start feeling better right away!!!

    Getting those things out will make all the difference in the world to her -

  8. Hi, Jessica!
    Thanks for telling us about your Mom!
    Glad they took away the stone and I hope everything goes well for the next surgery.
    I will have my paws crossed for her!

  9. With that horrible stone gone, your Mum should feel lots better. And when she gets the gall bladder out, she'll feel heaps better. (She might need you to cuddle her in bed.)

    Hope you aren't so upset that your off your squirrel patrol!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  10. Oh that sounds really nasty and painful. But at least it's one of those problems that modern medical science is quite good at dealing with, I believe.
    Now Jazzi, you remember to be really nice and gentle with your Mom when you see her next.
    Best wishes,
    Gail and Bertie.

  24. Hi Jessica,
    I first heard the news from Frankie Furter who keeps all of us in the "know" and then I decided to come on over for an update. How nice of you to write a blog post in your mom's behalf; I can just picture her telling you to write something for all of her blogger friends to read! She must be feeling somewhat better to be so concerned about her blog! I hope she starts feeling better soon!

  25. Jazzi! How skeeree to have the Momma far away and sickie. You can't take care of her and give her soft woofie kisses when she's all the way out there in Texas! We'll all be pawreying that she gets all better so she can come home soon to you and the peeps.

    Take care of all the little people while she's away. She's counting on you to take charge and keep everything running smoothly.

    Bonnie and her support staff
