    She’s going to be in the hospital for a few days and depending on how she does, they may want her to go to a rehab facility for a few more after she is released from the hospital.  I would talk to her about it and let her know you really want to be there for her but the trip opportunity is there.  Maybe she could move her surgery by a few days since it’s elective?  It’s almost two months away so I would assume it’s not a life or death situation.

    I agree, you should have another conversation with your mom & tell her how you are feeling.  If your dad will be with her, I think you should go & enjoy your vacation. If anything happens you could always fly back early.

    I’m very close with my mom, and she would just about murder me if I missed a fun trip to sit around with her and watch her watch TV and do PT.  Have your phone available just in case and enjoy your trip!

    Could you be with your mom for the first couple of days, and then join your husb afterwards? I am very close to my mum and would want to be there with her. I’d have a heart-to-heart with her and see what she wants you to do.

    I would go. Your Mom will understand. She will have your Dad there for her ๐Ÿ™‚


    I would feel a little bad too, my Mom is also my best friend. But since the surgery is not life threatening I think you are ok.

    I think my mom would want me to go. Does she have other people who will come hang out with her?
