Hey there. Hope things are winding down this week and getting ready for the weekend!
Thank you so much for the kind thoughts about my mom’s surgery. Everything went well and I’m happy to report that she’s resting at home now
Wednesday started out bright and early when my alarm went off at 6am and I finished getting my things together to go out of town. I planned on spending the night in the hospital with my mom, so I was dealing with the task of determining the fine line of packing what I needed without bringing *too* much crap. We’ve all been there, right?
I got to the hospital a little later that morning and hung out in the waiting room until my mom was transferred from PACU into her room. The surgeon reported that everything went really well. Yay.
A few things happened while I was waiting….
*I realized the hospital has a piano in their lobby and volunteers come and play throughout the day. It was pretty calming listening to that while I was waiting. I liked it.
*Some families ignore hospital policies about not bringing child visitors into the hospital during flu season. And then they cause a scene and get upset about it when the hospital enforces the policy. Not cool. The flu is crazy right now.
*The hospital had some weaaaak wifi. Neither my computer nor iPad would connect to their wireless internet, and the prospect of facing 24+ hours without it was kind of scary.
Once my mom was settled into her room, I headed down to the cafeteria to check out the food situation and grab an early dinner. I was really craving a hot meal but went at a weird time between lunch and dinner and ended up getting a sandwich.
Oh yeah, I also grabbed a few other things. Sometimes, ya just gotta have some awesome snacks.
I’m so glad everything went okay with my mom and that I was able to spend some time with her the past few days. I kind of owe her one (or two… or ten) since I have absolutely no idea what I would have done without her when I had my tonsils out last year! I’m hanging out with her today and then going back to work this weekend.
Hope you have a great weekend!
Is the flu going around where you live?
What are you up to this weekend?
