As they wheel her away at 11am into the Operating Room, I walk back to the Waiting area. Between praying and taking deep breaths, anxious waiting was all I could do.
My Hodgegirl is going for another biopsy today. They found a mass on her lung and that’s what they’re gonna try to get a sample from today.
Not even this basket full of treats or free-flowing coffee (which i usually can’t live without) could distract me from the stress.
Three hours later, her surgeon comes to say the procedure went well and that she will go into the Recovery Room soon. And that is when that breath of pure relief just fills me. And suddenly, I’m breathing normal again.
Everyone who sent their well wishes and prayers said she’s gonna be fine and although I knew this in my heart to be true, I guess mothers are not designed to be relaxed when it comes to their children.
So, now we work on her recovery while waiting for her biopsy results. Fingers crossed…
