Surgery, Part II

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.

She's probably been going through withdrawal without her iPad. Glad that she's recovering so well.

Just getting back to blogging after a period of being SO busy with my kids' sports and, well, just life.
I missed the reason why your mom had surgery, however, I pray that she recuperates well and resumes a life better than before!
Sounds like she's already on the right track. :)

Thanks for the update Rachel. Donna I'm so glad you are doing so well after your knee surgery. I know you are glad it's over, and behind you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, that your recovery period will be fast and without much pain. I know you can't wait for Cliff to bring you your Ipad!
Hugs,
Pat

Wow! It's amazing how quickly they can do surgeries like that and how quickly the patient heals. Hope she had a good dinner and gets a good night's sleep. Thank you for updating us!
