Holy freakballz! My mom is coming home tomorrow already! The nurse called me today to get some information and said they were looking at tomorrow afternoon for discharge. I was like 'What?! We were thinking Friday!' The nurse said no, that for hip replacement it's usually just a two night stay. She said it would depend how well Mom does in her moving around and first therapy today and tomorrow morning, but yeah, she'd probably be sent home tomorrow.
So then I was instantly fretting about who would go get her since my brother would be working, and now I'd need to move my time off up to this week instead of starting next week. I sent a text to my brother, warning him. Also sent a text to hubby to warn him in case he had to be the emergency backup plan. Sent a message to my boss, warning him too.
Well that stress is gone now because my sister-in-law called this evening and said she'd be going to bring Mom home tomorrow. She said Mom had called and they were booting her out at 3pm tomorrow afternoon. My sister-in-law was worried, thinking I wouldn't be able to stay with Mom till next week but I cleared that all up and said that yes, I'd be ready to start tomorrow when they got back.
This is all so whirlwind! It's got me very hopeful too! Is she really moving around that good that it's no problem to come home already? Is this recovery going to be that much faster and easier? If you've prayed or sent positive vibes, I thank you!!! I also got a text from my other brother, letting me know that he and his wife would be more available this time to come and give me some time off from Momsitting once in a while. Oh lordee, thank you! AND the nurse said they'll have the nurse and therapist come to Mom's home for the first couple weeks. Yes!!! I wasn't looking forward to the constant driving around for therapy and checkups. Ohhhh, I'm quite hopeful this evening, but we'll see soon enough if it's all too good to be true.
I didn't do much today because I thought I'd still have tomorrow off. Once those plans changed I got busy doing some laundry and getting some things organized here for the menfolk. Tomorrow morning I'll go shopping quick, then get home and finish up some laundry and other things before heading over to Mom's.
I did watch one Netflix movie today. It was Pay The Ghost, and it was dumb. I'm not much of a Nicholas Cage fan but even beyond that, the movie was dumb. Read some more of my King Ludwig book too today. I'm looking forward to my post about that, although it won't be until after I'm back from my mom's.
Okay, well I'm off for the night. I'm not sure if I'll sneak a little post in before I leave tomorrow. Maybe this will be it for a while. I guess we'll all have to wait and see.
Wish us luck! lol
