Mom update

Wow I still can't believe that it is actually 2009!!! I remember when I was younger that I would think that in the year 2000 I would be 40 years old since I was born in 1960...whoa, I'm turning 49 this more year and it will be the big 5-0 for me!! Eeeeekkk!!!

We started off the new year with mom getting a much needed haircut from my sister in law, Maria. :) She came over on her lunch hour and cut mom's hair for her and mom really loved it! It was getting really long and since the surgery site was shaved her hair was uneven so now it can grow all together. It's pretty funny that mom paid to have her hair curly for so many years and now that the hair is growing back after the radiation she has curly hair!!

It gets boring sitting around doing nothing and thankfully through modern technology mom was able to chat with Nancy, Robert and her cousin Madeleine on the webcam and that made her very happy! Of course Pookie has to watch her every move.

Things are going pretty good here. Mom is working hard with her physical therapist and tomorrow we have an appointment with her neurologist but the big test will be on the 16th when we get an MRI so please keep us in your prayers that we get good news again, the last MRI showed that the surgeon was able to remove everything!!
