Mom was admitted to the hospital last Saturday and today her doctor called to say she has a bowel obstruction, probably cancer, and they need to remove it. She will likely have a permanent colostomy then, but not radiation or chemo. Surgery is scheduled for next Tuesday, January 22. She’ll stay in the hospital until then and then for several more days following surgery. She may also need to stay in a skilled nursing facility for a while before returning to assisted living.
