Last night was the first night I actually slept in my own bed since Monday night. I have spent day and night at the hospital with my Mother. She had her total knee replacement Tuesday.
She did really well with the surgery, BUT had an allergic reaction to Demerol and then had to have 2 units of blood. We had a total of 5 hours sleep in 3 nights. Needless to say, between the hospital and trying to work it has been a really, really long week.
She was transferred to the Rehab facility where I work yesterday. She will likely be there 2-3 weeks receiving both Physical and Occupational Therapy.
She is doing wonderful now. We are thankful for the wonderful progress she has made thus far. Please keep her (and me) in your prayers.
Have a wonderful weekend!
