Nearer Your Destination.  
So, today (Wednesday) my mom is having a hernia surgery. My mom's health is not very good and she doesn't weigh very much and honestly, I don't think she is in any way strong enough to be having a surgery that isn't deemed life or death - but parents, you can't tell them anything.

I feel bad about the fact that I can't go with my sister to the hospital this time, like I did the last time. Since I got sick in October, I have learned my limitations and not to push myself too hard. The last thing my sister needs is for me to throw up/pass out on her while she is waiting at the hospital for news about my mom. So all I can do is wait for the phone to ring, I guess.

The big worry is how easily my mother gets infections. Because of this, I think the few days after the surgery will be more dangerous than anything. My sister went and bought my mom the first four seasons of my mom's newest favorite show, "Doc Martin", so at least she'll have something to watch while she heals up.

In other news, Kevin called me this morning and in a strange twist of irony, I had to tell him that I couldn't talk because I was getting ready to go to therapy.

And Cherri told everyone at the clinic about my Josh Jackson/Elijah Wood Gladiating Games dream. When I came in, one of the girls made a joke about "the games tonight" and I said to The BFF, "I don't know what she is talking about but if it is an orgy, I am in." Turns out, everyone knew about my dream.

That is all.

Lots of good thoughts for your mom and I'm glad the new therapy people are fun. *hugs*

Mom is doing good, but she is stoned off the pain pills they gave her and keeps calling me. Our conversations have at least been interesting. :)

The new therapist and I had a long talk about how the government system in my dream would not make for a logical story plot. She got kind of into it - it was cute.

Now with Kevin not there, I think the aides just pretty much talk about whatever they want. It's like anarchy!

Thank you! My mom is doing pretty good so far - at home and resting up. /smishes back/

Fingers crossed for you and your mom, you'll be all in my thoughts. I hope everything goes well.

Thank you! Mom seems to be doing well so far. The surgery went well and she is home and enjoying the pain pills they gave her.

That's great, I'm glad to hear that. :)

I hope that everything goes as smoothly as possible for your Mom, that there are absolutely no complications, and that she ends up being completely infection-free. *hugs*
dodger_sister: hugdodger_sister on March 3rd, 2012 02:30 am (UTC)
Thank you, darling! The surgery went well and Mom is at home. There is still a chance for infection, but I think she is actually taking it easy and following all her aftercare instructions - so I am happy.

Awesome news! Tell her to keep up the good, infection-free resting work!

My best wishes to your mom for a good surgery and recovery.
dodger_sister: smiledodger_sister on March 3rd, 2012 02:31 am (UTC)
Thank you! Mom's surgery went well and she is at home now. I think she is actually even taking it easy and everything.

*hugs* And best wishes to your Mom and your family. Waiting by the phone will suck, but it sounds like your maaking the right choice, you don't want to be ill at the hospital, but yeah *lots of hugs*
dodger_sister: hugdodger_sister on March 3rd, 2012 02:32 am (UTC)
Thank you! Waiting by the phone did suck. She went in at like 6am, so for awhile there I was jerking awake at every little noise, thinking it was the phone.

But everything went well and Mom is home now and doing good. :)

Glad to hear it all went well. :D

I'll be sure to keep your mom in my prayers. I know it sucks to sit by the phone and wait, but it is better than getting sick and making yourself even more stressed out. ((hugs))

Kevin called me this morning and in a strange twist of irony, I had to tell him that I couldn't talk because I was getting ready to go to therapy. Now that is funny!

Also, it's hilarious Cherri is sharing what a dirty perv you are with the rest of the staff. You must be their favorite patient.
dodger_sister: hugdodger_sister on March 3rd, 2012 02:35 am (UTC)
Thank you, babe! I know logically there was nothing I could do even at the hospital, I just hated making my sister go by herself. But Mom seems to be doing good and is resting at home with her new DVDs.

Everybody knows what a dirty perv I am already. They can hear the things I say to Kevin in that booth - they know my mind is in the gutter. Besides, what's dirty about teenage boys fighting to the death...oh. Right.

Hope your mom is alright, bb. *sends good thoughts*

Lol at everyone at therapy apparently having heard about your dream. It was an awesome dream. :)

And if you think I'm spamming you, you should have seen my browser. I went through 300 posts on my flist, and I ended up with about 6 tabs of your post. I approve. :D
dodger_sister: smiledodger_sister on March 3rd, 2012 02:40 am (UTC)
Thank you, babe! Mom is doing pretty good - stoned off her ass on pain killers - but home and resting now.

Apparently the people at therapy had been talking about my dream all morning. New!PT and I had a whole conversation about how the government system in my dream didn't make any sense (if they couldn't afford to feed all the starving masses, how they could afford to host The Gladiator Games?). She got kind of into trying to logic out my dream, it was funny.

I was posting like crazy towards the end of the month. 300 entries? Shit, girl.

I will admit that I have this problem that like when I am behind on my Flist - no matter if I am just trying to read through it as fast as I can and get caught up - if I see a post from Wolfie, I have to stop and comment. :)
wolfrider89: Misha priestwolfrider89 on March 3rd, 2012 08:36 pm (UTC)
Haha, awesome. And maybe the government was just fooling the people into thinking they couldn't afford food for them, and in reality they just wanted these badass gladiator fights? And here I am, trying to insert logic (ish) into your dream. :P

Yeah, 300 entries. I should do a comm cut, I think. It's mostly deancastiel that takes space, and I can't cut them because then I won't be able to post there anymore. Maybe I could stop watching them? Although that would mean less awesome D/C fics, and that would be sad. Hmm.

Aw, bb. Same here. :)

Glad to hear your mom is home and resting. <3

That makes sense!! I had thought that maybe the government didn't actually pay out death benefits like it says it does - but then I figured that eventually people would figure that out. Yours makes more sense.

You know, for my Flist, I like to click it so it just shows my friends' journals and read through all of those and then, if I have time for fic reading, I pull up my whole Flist with my comms in there. That way I can keep up on what is happening with my friends without getting distracted by shiny fics. Then if I want fic, I usually just pick a comm I have on my watch list and flip over there to see what is new (lately all I have wanted to read is Dean/Cas and anything Firefly).
wolfrider89: Em Misha approveswolfrider89 on March 7th, 2012 06:45 am (UTC)
Oh, that's a good strategy! I'll do that! Because the friends are the most important, and then fics can come in second. Thanks for the tip! <3
