A Very Little Update...

First of all THANK YOU for those of you who have prayed for my Mom! She came through the surgery beautifully. The doctor said it couldn't have gone more smoothly. God is good! She is having the regular bumps in the road that come with being sovemshty years old (I'll never tell! Okay, maybe I would, but that's another post) and having just had surgery. Needing oxygen, drips, etc. But she is already up and using her walker and sitting up in a chair for an hour or so at a time. Good stuff, but keep praying for her.

I stayed with her Tuesday night and last night and I will have to say that waiting on a patient on morphine, even if she IS your mother, is quite the entertainment. She remembers nothing, but when I told her what she said and did, we were both cracking up. She seems to have an affinity for clouds. Don't ask.

Anyway, she is hopefully getting to move to rehab tomorrow. My sister is with her tonight and tomorrow night to allow me to get some rest. You know you get NONE in the hospital. I'm SO grateful for my sister! She took Kiddo home with her Tuesday morning so Sound Man and I wouldn't have to worry about who to ask to keep him this week. And now she is there at the hospital. Which reminds me, I need to call to check up on them.

Thank you again!

Oh that morphine! Remember it doesn't do that with everyone, my mom just slept, but oh my dear. My middle son has had it twice. First time at the ER with some stomach bug that was awful. He's got a really high pain level so if he is hurting, then we would be climbing the walls. Anyway, they gave it to him then. He was singing the show tunes from the school musical that spring. His vitals were checked every 10 min by every single nurse/intern down there. He was so funny.
Last time was in April when he had his pacemaker replacement surgery. His dad had heard stories, but didn't know. He was on a morphine drip after surgery. I laughed until I cried, hubby was hysterical, BIL stopped by and was borderline freaked but highly amused by it all. He entertained the staff, the nurses loved him and other families found him amusing. Then he got really nauseated, poor kid.
