Hold Onto Me

mom update

Hello everybody!

My mom came through her surgery beautifully yesterday, and I know it was because so many of you were pulling for her. Thank you for that.

When I talked to her in the morning, she'd had a spinal tap so she couldn't feel anything, but was totally alert. Kind of cool. She was in high spirits, about to order lunch, and informed me that she had both her wig and her lipstick on!

In the evening, she was dopey on painkillers, but still in a good mood. She'd already been up and walked across the room. (On doctor's orders), so that's positive!

I expect today will be the hardest day, we'll see how it goes. And of course, we have to do this again with the other knee in October. But, so far, so good.

Thanks for being my rock y'all.
