Relief

Mom finally had her surgery for her leg yesterday. Everything is all patched up now. I called her when I got home and she was still pretty heavy under the influence of the surgery meds so the conversation was interesting to say the least! LOL! She should be able to come home this weekend. I am going up to visit for Memorial Day weekend. It serves a double purpose. I get to see my mom post surgery and I get to drop Pooka off so she can go with her dad to NY to see her paternal side of the family. She has seen pics of them but she doesn't know them and she was very young when she last seen them so hopefully she can start making lasting connections with that side of her family.

I am chilling. For the last 2 days I felt like someone has punched me in the left eye. Meds, food, rest, nothing helps. Great! I woke up a little before 3am this morning and was up. I didn't get sleepy again until 3o minutes before it was time for me and Pooka to get up. I have already started to pay for it.

My birthday is a bit over 2 months away. Since it's a milestone birthday I would like to do something special. I have been playing with some ideas lately but I have to settle on something soon because the later I book something the more it's gonna cost.

I'll figure something out I guess.

I'm just glad it's Friday.

Glad your mom finally had her surgery. You must be happy! Hope the recover is quick and uneventful.

This isn't the first time you've blogged about an eye problem as I recall. You should get that checked out.

Get a tattoo for your birthday in another state and then get wasted. Well, that's the first thing I thought of on short notice.

Glad she is patched up. How long before she will be back on her feet?

How long is Pooka gonna be up there?

Well let me know what you plan for your birthday........... I plan on being in your neck of the woods around then.

I am thrilled the hospital stuff is coming to an end for sure!

Not serious enough to see a Doc.

I'd have to be wasted first to get a tat, not the other way around! LOL!

TZ, not really sure to be honest.

She is just going up for the weekend.

LOL! I may not be in NC for my birthday, but I'll keep yah posted.

Mo, thanks!

I am :-) I refuse to stop smiling.

Glad your mom is doing well.

Our birthdays are days away from each other. I'm still deciding what I want to do.

I felt like someone punched me in the right eye, but then I had a nasty looking... never mind. I'll keep that visual to myself.

You should make other people plan your milestone birthday.
