It has been just over one year (May 19th) since my Beautiful Mother had brain surgery. She had a aneurysm that they caught early and wanted to fix before it burst. The surgery went perfectly but then her brain began to hemorrage and we did not know if she would ever wake. They did a second surgery to relieve the pressure and she woke up!!! We had no idea if she would be able to talk, if she would be able to move her right side, If she would even know who we where. I have to say I was just greatful we had her but was soo terrified that she would not know who I was. My Momma is my best friend. That would have crushed me. But of course she knew me and she is a MIRACLE. She in one year has recovered almost back to where she started, Their are a few things that will never be the same, but they are things she will be able to learn to accept and incorporate in her life. But that one week took me from being my Momma's little girl to being a grown woman who worries about losing My Best Friend. It's not fun , I know I will grow and the fear will reside but I will forever be changed. I am soo proud of her! I love her! Thank you God for giving her to me!.

    Makes me miss my mom horribly...
    No one can replace your mom and it is a hard process to watch them get older and go from the little girl to the best friend stage.. but, what a blessing you have had and a great opportunity and second chance!!! thanks for sharing your mom with me today!!

  9. Holy cow! My Mom has an aneurysm! They caught hers early due to other health problems she was having (epilepsy). What surgery did your mom have? My Mom had her surgery 8 (I'm guessing here but it was a while ago!) years ago and she had the catheter operation where they "pack" the aneurysm with platinum coils. They had to use 2 coils on my Moms, and she recovered so well she was only in hospital 2 days! This surgery is much less intensive than the traditional surgery but the patients recover so much better.
    I am so thankful that my Mom got to have this surgery and that they caught it early!
