Today. Today was emotionally exhausting. My mom got picked up by her boss/friend/my Godmother at around 11am and they drove to the hospital in San Jose. Her surgery started around 2pm. It was supposed to take a couple of hours I think but I got a call about an hour and a half later saying that she was already in recovery. Everything had gone smoothly and it was a textbook procedure. She was out of it for a couple hours, but about an hour ago, she called me from her room saying that she was doing okay. She was on pain meds, but thankfully not morphine because she wasn't slurring her words/speaking in slow motion. She was bemoaning the fact that she got sugar free jello for dinner (she doesn't like jello) :) She could have been released today, but everyone (including her finally) agreed that maybe a night in the hospital where they could watch her, drug her, and show her how to get around might be a good idea. So she should be back tomorrow afternoon. She'll be in quite some pain, but it sounds like this was a good decision. Because she had never had her back really taken care of the first time, there was quite a bit to clean out in there.

I think my grandma, who has Alzheimer's, sensed something was off/that my mom wasn't here. She was acting extra crazy today and talking about her mother. I hate it when she does that. She's 94, but I'm not about to just tell her that her mother is long dead. So I try to steer the conversation into another direction.

And as for me, I was a nervous wreck all day until I actually talked to my mom. Couldn't really focus on anything and I'd start crying for no good reason. I had a headache all day and my stomach was beyond upset. But I'm doing better now. Now that I know she's okay. Brother and I had leftover chili he had made a couple days ago, and I made some cornbread muffins from scratch to go with it. In fact, I'm too tired to think of something different. Sorry, today's picture will be another meal )
