    Hugs and kisses for my mother

    My mother is finally at home, after a second knee replacement surgery and a few weeks in a rehabilitation center. We’re all relieved.

    Things didn’t go as well as hoped after the surgery and my 80-year-old mother had a few complications in the hospital. My sisters and I were anxious but we did our best not to convey our uneasiness to our mother. We had a few sleepless nights.

    My mother made it through the crisis but is still being monitored by her doctor. At the rehab center, she worked hard with the physical therapists and was walking relatively well when it was time to go home. She’s facing weeks of physical therapy.

    I can’t tell you how many hugs and kisses I’ve given her over the past few weeks. And how often I’ve prayed.
