Saturday- Zach and I went to town and spent some time roaming around downtown and checking out the crazy days sales and looking at the newly remodeled downtown area. We picked up a pizza and a couple of movies and had a relaxing evening at home.
Sunday- started out beautiful and quickly changed. Jeff, Zach and I headed to the beach in the morning and spent a few hours soaking up the rays and Zach did some swimming in the frigid water. I waded in to my knees and then my body refused to go farther. When we got home in the early afternoon I got a call from my dad that my parents had been in a car accident and they were transferring my mother to the St Cloud hospital. Indescribable terror! I picked my dad up at the Brainerd hospital and we headed to St Cloud.
Monday- Spent a long day in the hospital waiting for neurosurgeons and orthopedic specialists to figure out what they were going to do. There is such a helplessness that comes from waiting and not knowing what’s going on. Their pain becomes your pain and there’s not a thing you can do.
Tuesday- Mom is receiving such excellent care at the hospital. It takes a really patient, caring person to be a nurse and she’s had some wonderful ones. Surgery for her will be either Wednesday or Thursday.
Wednesday- Surgery today for mom. Went better then expected.
Thursday-mom doing well. In a lot of pain, but now starting on the road to recovery. Janeen came over and snuck into my house and did my dishes and cleaned up a little for me as well as brought a cake for us. She then followed us down to see mom.
Friday- After getting up early to get supper in the crock pot for my family and dad I went to work today for a full day for the first time all week. We have a big divisional meeting next Tuesday so everyone’s panicked getting ready for that. After work I drove home, picked up Zach and we headed for St Cloud to visit mom. They had her up sitting in a chair for a little bit today. That completely wears her out.
