I went to the hospital after work, to see how Mom was doing. Aunt Rena was there already. Mom's in great spirits and said she can barely tell she had surgery, other than a bit of pain. She mentioned that she hadn't hit her "happy button" for a long time. That made me laugh. "Happy Button." LOL
She got out of surgery at 10, and was in her room by 11:30. She was starving by the time I got there at 5:30, so I expect that she'll eat quite well tonight. When I left, the nurse was in there to take vitals and let her hang her feet over the side of the bed. I think she'll be putting weight on it tomorrow. Amazing.
Also, tomorrow she'll have her iPad. Dad's going to take it to her when he visits before work. She'll be doing her own posts from here on out. I just know how many folks watch this blog to see how she's doing, and I wanted to update everyone.
If you want to ask something, or want to know where she is, or whatever, you can email me. I don't get notifications for her blog. My email is fierro6 at embarqmail dot com. Sorry for the annoying format. I hate spam.
To summarize, Mom's doing great tonight, and seemed pretty happy while I was there. This is good news, for sure.
