Wednesday Update

My mom finally made it to surgery at 4pm today.  We had to fight to get them to transfer her to the orthopedic floor following surgery (she was on the medical floor pre-surgery).  It is ridiculous what we've had to fight for when it should be a no-brainer.  Thankfully, the surgery is over and we now hope and pray that the recovery goes smoothly and she can get the heck out of that hospital never to return again.

This medically advocating is exhausting and I'm ready for a break (no pun intended). 

Thanks all for your concern for my mom.
