My mom had surgery last Friday. She made it through with flying colors! She is now back at the facility she was before. They are being extra attentive which is good. I have been off work since Wednesday last week and I have requested FMLA until Nov. 26th.

I'm hanging in there. I have learned I need to take care of myself. It's hard but I'm no help if I'm sick or run down. I'm still coughing and I probably need to see a doctor. Add it to the list of things to do eh?

Hope you all are doing ok. I need to look in on you all! Take care until next time...

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

I know I have been quite the stranger. I miss you all and haven't looked at my Google Reader for moons.

Over the course of the last 6 weeks or so I have had a virus. My car got hit in a parking lot, lost my netbook, got my foot ran over by a car and my mom falling and breaking her back. She was making some major progress but she fell on Wednesday in the bathroom at the rehab facility and broke her hip. Not only does she have 6 stitches in her head but she is going to need surgery to repair the hip. The surgery is only about an hour or so. The approximate recovery time is 12 weeks. The facility that she was in has claimed liability for the incident as well which just adds to the situation. It doesn't change it.

I am hanging in there. This is not my first rodeo with her in the hospital but given her age now and the risk factors it is a lot scarier. Wish I had better news to share... such is life huh? Until next time...

P.S. Weight is holding steady...
