I feel really nervous this morning. Maybe it's because my Mom is about to have major surgery -- and maybe the stress from the fact that I didn't get as much studying done this weekend as I would have liked and that my car insurance expired and I haven't had a chance to take care of it is just putting me over the edge. My stomach is what I would describe as a firey pit. My Mom is supposed to be at the hospital at 9. She's having her hip replaced, which everyone agrees is a good idea, since she doesn't have any cartilage left between the bones. She's going to be just fine and the surgery could potentially bring her back to a much higher quality of life, since she loves to climb mountains and do lots of active things. But, surgery is surgery and it makes me nervous -- and I wish I could be there with her sooner than Friday.
This just in (at NOON) --
The surgery is over and went well!! Yay!!
What a relief! Whew!
