During her stay in the hospital for pneumonia they discovered a mass on one of Mom’s kidneys. After consultation with several specialists it was decided that the kidney would be removed. Mom was given the choice of UCSF or UC Davis as the place for the surgery. They are both top-quality teaching hospitals. She chose UC Davis.
Yesterday Mom had her pre-op exam. Next Wednesday she goes in for a laparotomy. If all goes well she should be home by Friday.
Because she is a retired public employee Mom has excellent insurance in addition to Medicare, so medical bills won’t be a problem. Hopefully this will be Mom’s last adventure for a while. This past year or so has been “interesting.”
This is an open thread.
