Surgery Soon!

Mom (Gommy) will have a hip replacement surgery next Friday, July 2nd.  The new dr. that she met with today feels that her only option is this extreme and "tricky" surgery.  However, the hopeful news is that finally, three years after the accident, she will walk without pain and without crutches. Mom has lived the last three years with several surgeries and two different rods placed in her leg with the hopes that she would recover. However, the damage to her leg was just to much. So now, the idea behind this surgery is to replace the hip and the leg bone below it that was broken. The dr. was clear that this would be a hard and tricky surgery...first off, they have to remove the broken rod, and then do the hip replacement surgery. I will go to Texas on Thursday so that I can be there.  Please prayer over this surgery.  And thank you all for your faithful love and prayers for my family.  I am so grateful that the surgery is happening over the 4th of July weekend because Steve is off and able to stay home with the children. With Kalyn in Mexico, we do not have the child watching help that we normally do.  AND, GUESS WHAT, while my mom is in the hospital, my parents will celebrate 51 years of being married!!! 
Thank you all for asking and caring! We are so grateful. 
Alia is doing much better also. 
I got an email that Kalyn had arrived safely in Mexico last night. We have been enjoying the warm weather here. Time to get us all ready for the day....


  1. I've been catching up on your blog! I will be praying for your mom's surgery and for Kalyn. What a beautiful poem she wrote!

    Thank you so much for checking on means so much to me!

    Hope you're having a great day.

  2. Praying for your mother.

  3. I've been praying that God would guide the drs & your mum in the right decision - will continue praying for her.
