Re: Pancreatic Cancer and Whipple Surgery
Summer Very happy to hear you saw your mom and she's doing well. That must be very comforting. They take great care of ppl in ICU so she's in the right place. Patients usually do better than the family/friends, and Dad may be having letdown, because she IS sharp and aware-he can fall apart moreso than before the surgery. My husband aged 20 yrs when I my liver failed & I was in a coma. (he's only 51-and a very young looking 51) When I woke up, I didn't know what happened. I thought he looked so much older, but couldn't figure out why. When he told me how long I had been out, I didn't believe them at first-I thought it was longer, that's how bad he looked. He came around-but told me later, he didn't really fall apart until he knew I was out of the woods. No matter what, I'm sure Dad appreciates you being there to see your mom and him.
Continued prayers for a clean biopsy, complete healing and comfort for your Mom, and some rest for your Dad.(and you too!!) :-) Keeping fingers crossed until her results come in....
