The waiting game....

My mothers surgery was suppose to be this afternoon. I was so nervous as the hour approached. I took an extra break from work to wish her good luck before they were off to the hospital. I sat nervously at my desk inputing new products onto the online store I work for. I tried to stay focused all afternoon, hoping I was doing a good job. I have never been so scatter brained ever. Work finally ended and I was able to call my dad to see how she was doing. The surgery would have been almost over, he would surely have an update. "How is it going" I started the conversation off. "We are just waiting here." "WE?" I asked. Yeah, my mother hadn't gone into surgery yet. Um.... ok, 2 hours late, I guess I can wait for a little longer until I hear some new. I am just glad that all my readers (both of you.) will forgive me if this blog doesn't make sense. :)


****UPDATE: My mom made it through the surgery. They were hoping to put a metal plate in her shoulder, but it ended up being broken in 8 places so they decided against screwing any holes into the bones. They stitched up the shoulder socket a bit and she should be sent on her way this afternoon! Feel better soon, Mom! ****

That's too bad she had to go through that. I hope she recovers fast.
