Postby ardleigh » Thu Jan 01, 1970 12:00 am

she is getting her right middle lobe out because she has lung cancer.
the doctor is very confident and i am too but of course it is major surgery and im worried.
she has to b at the hospital at 530 am and of course i want to go but my mom says i dont need to i can come to the hospital when she gets out of rcovery.
i feel guilty not being there though
am i a terrible daughter if i go to the hospital once she wakes up ?????? :(
also , my mom isnt a fan of flowers , so what else should i get for her to bring as a gift ?
i love my mother very much please no mean comments :(

Absolutely no reason for you to hang around the hospital during the surgery. It serves no useful purpose and just makes you anxious and tired.

It is sometimes nice to have someone with you while you are waiting to go into surgery, other people find it annoying.

Once she is out of recovery is the best time to visit.

What about a bunch of cheerful balloons? The latest edition of her favorite magazine or puzzle book? The latest book by her favorite author? A warm, soft throw rug to snuggle with in a chair? Bowl of fruit? Box of chocolates? Jar of hard candy to suck?

I took the train and subway to my last two surgeries. The traffic into the city near us is terrible in the mornings. Someone picked me up once the day surgeries were done.
