Mama Deb [userpic]

My mother is recovering from surgery as I write.

An MRI revealed a cyst on one of her ovaries, so she had laproscopic surgery today, and they found more on both ovaries. All are benign to the naked eye. They need further testing, but they show no gross signs of malignancy.

However, they removed both ovaries and the tubes. My mother is 72 and way past menopause, so it's not going to effect her hormonally.

She's awake now, in some pain because they had to enlarge the insision, and they may well keep her overnight. My older brother and her boyfriend Lenny are with her.

Apparently, Lenny spent the night last night.

I think I'm glad. He's a lovely man and they're very couplish together.

She's not terribly happy, but she should be fine.

I was delegated to calling my younger brother, because he and my older brother don't speak. Eric wasn't home, but his wife was. His wife *Debbie*. Yeah. jonbaker is amused that he has a twin brother-in-law - born on the same day, mere hours apart, in two boroughs of the same city. And both are involved with women named Debbie [Maiden Name].

Phone call started,
(Me) "Hi, Debbie?"
(Her) "Yes."
"This is Debbie."
"Eric's sister."

(How Eric doesn't feel incestuous I don't know.)

I don't speak to them much, either, so we did some catching up.

But most importantly. Mom is fine.

HOwever. A misheberach wouldn't go amiss. Basya Rochel bat Chana


I'm glad to hear that your mother seems to be all right.

Consider the misheberach said, anyway. :-)

Thank you!

I'm glad she's ok and that everything looks benign. Still scary, though. I will say a misheberach for her.

Thank you!

I didn't know this before, but I'm glad it's resolving itself and she's fine. I wrote the name down (we're before Shabbos here) for my husband to take to shul.

It's funny watching your parents have relationships, isn't it? My dad's a bit older than that and has this nice German girlfriend. It's odd for me, as she's nothing like my mom was, but I'm happy for him.

Thank you.

Lenny is a doll, so I'm happy if it works out.

Thinking good thoughts for Mom...

I also have a sister-in-law named Debbie! She didn't change her name when she married, so L's parents call me Debbie Jean and her Debbie Sue.

We're everywhere!!

Aren't we, though?

My father said that in 1960 or thereabouts, all the parents had a meeting and decided to name all their daughters "Debbie" and their sons "Jeffrey."

I am, apparently, "Our Debbie" while she is "Eric's Debbie."

I am, apparently, "Our Debbie"

That's rather English.

Isn't it, though? I am the only "our" in the family, though. And it's not said around me.

Best wishes for your mom's recovery! {{{hugs}}}

Thank you!

"This is Debbie."
"Eric's sister."

Um, I wouldn't be worried about the incestuous feelings here... ;-)

I hope your mother is doing better! *hugs*

Yeah, well.

She's very sweet. :)
