It's Monday, and I'm not reading


... but wanted to say hello and give you a quick update.

Mom had her hip replacement two weeks ago, was discharged on Wednesday morning, but ended up an another hospital Wednesday evening. She had a cardiac cath (with two stents placed) on Friday, and was discharged again on Saturday the 20th. Both of my parents have been staying with us since then. Mom is doing great. Her mobility is better every day and she's looking forward to having the staples removed later today.

Needless to say, my reading time has evaporated and I haven't even thought about blogging. I'm trying hard to convince them to stay another week... and think they're starting to relent.

I'll be back after Labor Day. As you can see, fall is already on the way.

  2. Glad to hear your Mom is doing better. Hip replacement recover is really amazing. I can definitely understand why you're not getting much reading done though!

  3. Hip replacement surgery is really something, isn't it? I am always amazed at how quickly they get them up and around. Physical therapy can be draining but I hope your mom continues to heal and that you are able to catch your breath soon.

  17. Scary that she had to go right back to a hospital. Was it a complete surprise? I'm so happy she is doing better.

    1. Nan - It was! No previous hint of coronary artery disease. I think the hip surgery put just enough stress on her heart to let us know there was a problem, yet not so much to precipitate a more serious event. She was very lucky.

  18. Thanks for the update--I was wondering how your mom was doing. Sounds like the complications are under control. Priorities shift as needed and your reading time will return :)
