Sunday Blessings - We ' re Back Home

Praise God we returned home on Saturday evening.
Mother Hazel 's laparoscopy was successful.
On the 13th they ran several tests and the surgery took
place on 14th evening.
Several people came to pray and
to encourage us.
My Pastor, his wife and Sonia
were a great help. Mama has to get her strength and appetite back.
She has to have her sutures removed after 5 days.
The Catholic Hospital we went to is moderately
priced and offers excellent services.


Our room

My bed. I had to take my own sheet, pillow and blanket.
We also have to arrange our own food.

The young smart Catholic nurses
in this hospital are very efficient, dedicated
and well trained.
My Aunt Rita was admitted in a room down this corridor.
She had open surgery for gall stones.
One large stone was gorged in a duct which gave her jaundice.
She was very weak and ill. They inserted a tube to keep
the stone in place.
A day before her scheduled surgery she got high fever.
In the afternoon she was alone in her room
and a nurse, who knew we are related,
came to me and requested me to apply
a cold compress on my aunt 's forehead.
I did that for sometime till her fever came down and
her husband returned. My Pastor went
to pray for her several times.
She had her surgery and Uncle
showed me the large stones they removed.
I 've got Mama 's stones too.
They are about 6, like necklace beads.
Thank you so much for your
prayers and good wishes.
Everyday I read God 's promises from the Bible
and prayed with mother.
He is true to His Word.

Dear Amrita,
I pray for a strong recovery for your mother and your aunt.
I also pray for rest and strength for yourself.
I know by experience how exhausting these hospital sleep overs can be.

I'm so glad to hear of the good news. Your mother looks so precious, and what a precious daughter she has in you. Now it's time for you both to rest and recharge.
love,

I am so happy that she's getting better and every day she will improve! make sure she gets up and walks and sits in a chair through out the day for at least 30 minutes at a time, Oop's, I forgot, I'm not at work, but the walking thing is good for her recovery, just start out small, it helps gain strength. I liked looking at the pictures from the hospital, since I work in big one here in my town. You take care of your self as well, so you can help take care of your Mom.
Hugs~
Annette

Praise the Lord that your mother is already fine and had a successful operation. We will still pray for her and your aunt too. God works in mysterious ways and through agencies you will never dream of. He is good all the time. Thanks for the wonderful post. God bless you always.

This is good news to hear...it is also very interesting to photos of your hospital and to hear how the system works there....I am glad you are home and things are on the mend

Donetta said...

Hello Dear Lady,
So glad to hear of her home coming. It is such a different world. I am sure that our costs of care would greatly reduced if it were for the family to aid. So many families hear however would abandon their posts of that I am sure.
Not you beautiful. You continue to do what is right , honorable.
You know your amazing. Yes you. Your kindness and patience is so enduring. I do understand this is so very taxing for you. Try to get some rest.
Be Embraced

Olde Dame Penniwig said...

Hooray, you are both home, perhaps you can get some well-deserved rest, and your mother can rest comfortably and recover best at home! And surely Sheeba is so happy to have you back home. It's so stressful to be away, especially for such a nerve-wracking reason as surgery!

To hear the differences between Indian hospitals and U.S. hospitals was at first shocking, and then I thought back to my actual experiences in hospitals here -- and you know, it ended up that my family and friends had to help me, fetch things, put cold washcloths on my neck, bring decent food, etc, after all -- just as in India -- the nurses were always "too busy" with paperwork and tapping away at computers to actually help the patients -- so things are not so different after all!!!
