You all probably know by now that my mom had surgery today. For those who don't know, my mom had hip replacement surgery today. She had her other hip done two summers ago. (Or was it three?) Anyway, my brother and sister-in-law took her to the hospital early this morning. I worked today and it kept me busy enough that I wasn't constantly thinking about the surgery and worrying. I finally got a text from my brother about 2:30pm saying everything was fine. I asked if they got to see her, was she awake, coherent? Last time she'd been so loopy and sleepy she hadn't even remembered I was there. My brother said yes, she was awake and they visited for a bit then she fell asleep so they went to lunch. When they got back she was awake again so they visited a bit more but then she fell asleep again so they headed for home. I'm glad to hear everything went okay but it's really going to be tomorrow when we start to find out how things are going, when they get her up and start to get her moving again. Who knows, maybe they'll try that this evening already since her surgery was early this morning.
Work was crazy because starting the machines up after a week of being down is always chaotic. Nothing wants to run right and you have to get all the kinks worked out of things. Having hot and humid weather didn't help things either. Because it's a factory and most of the machines require steam, it's impossible to keep the place cool. You really have to pace yourself in your work, sneak away to stand by a fan when you can, make a point to drink extra water. They do supply Gatorade on these hot days but it's a watered down version made from a powder mix. Bleah.
I'm trying to cool off now that I'm home. I inhaled two ice cream sandwiches for supper. lol
And now I'm heading up to bed to read and relax in front of some fans.
Short and sweet post but hey, at least I'm still posting.
