My sister, Maxine, had major surgery yesterday: after a rocky start to her morning today, she seems to be doing pretty well. She ate a substantial lunch, and is dozing in a chair right now. I brought a "big band" CD I made for her, music that put a smile on her face as she drifted off.
Since she hadn't used her "on-demand" morphine last night or this morning, she'll now be taking pain killers the nurse brings, when she asks for them. So far she has not needed any. I'm thankful that she's not having much pain... except, of course, when she moves or coughs.
I brought the laptop along in order to play the music for her and was surprised to find there's Internet access in the hospital. So if I can't sleep tonight, I can surf away the time.
Wow, I just remembered Pandora radio and created a "big band" station. Maxine can have all the Glenn Miller she wants while I'm here!
