Looking good!

Today was mom's follow-up appointment with her doctor.  The good news is that there was no bad news! In fact, mom will get to go to our Family Reunion next week!  Thank you so much for all of your prayers and your concern.  We have felt the reassurance and strength of the Lord and we appreciate that so much.  Mom is on a liquid diet and is now starting to eat soft foods.  She does have some pain in the area where the gastric bypass was supposed to have been done, but the doctor said that was probably just scar tissue.  He said she would definitely know if another leak started because she would get really sick right away.  (I guess that is comforting?)   Mom is very weak and will need several months to slowly build her strength back up now that her insides seems to be healed.  They are planning on doing an endoscopy to see what her insides look like, but that will be after the family reunion, so depending on when that gets scheduled for, she will either be allowed to go home with my dad back to Snohomish after the reunion, or she will travel back to Arizona with Becky and Ryan.  Either way, it won't be too much longer before she can go back to her home in Snohomish.  Yippee Mom!


  1. Amazing news! So happy that things are going well (FINALLY!!!). Have a great time at your reunion and tell your Mom we love her.

  2. Alright Kate...give us another update! We're looking forward to a reunion report and to know when your mom can come home.
