Dwerlina Sandusky, in from Lafayette, Louisiana, updates her mother's friends about how she did during her back surgery. She is relieved to say that all went well for her mother, and she is now resting comfortably in the Intensive Care ward.

Wednesday, the 23rd of February, 2005, 1:00 p.m., C.S.T.~

Dear All (Jenna and Michael, Anna Arnette King, Diane Aguilar, Kendra Williams, Louisa Mason, Phoebe Pearson, Betty Jo Ciagalore, etc.)~

Hi! This is Dwerlina, Louisiana's nearly-adult daughter, writing. I am writing to tell you that my mother is now out of surgery, and she has just been moved to the Intensive Care ward from Recovery; and I am pleased to report that her vital signs are stable; and that she is now resting comfortably. The surgery went without a hitch, and she came through it beautifully.

As you can probably imagine, I am exhausted, but I refuse to leave my mother's side, and I am now sitting in the I.C.U. waiting room, waiting for visiting hours to start up again (they will start up again in under an hour from now; we can then see maman for 15 minutes). I am sure maman has various tubes and lines in her, and that she probably is pale and looks terrible, but what do you expect? She just had major back surgery, and she is bound to look a little rough. But she made it through the surgery, and the doctor just talked with us; and he is pleased at how well she is doing at the present time. There is NO paralysis, and he repaired the damage caused by the fall and the prolapsed disk, and he said that maman should get around much better after she recovers..and there is the possibility that she may not even need a cane or anything! So our prayers have been answered, and I can't wait until she awakens from her surgery, so we can tell her the good news! God is so good to our family; He has performed a Miracle in our mother's life, and I am feeling blessed now! :)

I am so happy that maman made it through the surgery: she has had to live with this monster called back pain ever since I can remember, and it was hard to see her suffering and being in such severe pain; yet, she never let it on as to just how much she was hurting, but you could definitely see it on her face and in her eyes. Still, she carried a smile and a winning attitude, and she never let her disabilities ge to her, no, not even ONCE! That's the kind of woman maman is, and that is the way she has always been! But now she is on the road to recovery, and the surgery is now behind her, thank the Lord! :)

I will be getting myself something to eat before I see maman in Intensive Care; so I will write again soon. Until next time, this is Dwerlina signing off! Thank you again for all the love, concern, and prayers you have shown my mother; she is really blessed to have so many caring friends around the country!

God bless each and every one of you mightily, and thank you again!

~As always,

Most sincerely,

Dwerlina Lynette Sandusky, Louisiana's daughter. :)
