LJ!!! Internet!!! My own Bed!!! I missed you all so much…Look my own pillow *hugs*

So I did drop off the face of the earth to everyone but October has not been the smoothest month for me. My mother had hip replacement surgery in the start of the month. Then after four days in the hospital with her I come home to a disconnected internet service (company’s fault).

The surgery went well and the doctors were great but when my mother was transferred to a rehab center for physical therapy it all hit the fan. It was more of a nursing home than anything. She’s strong, a young 54, and very healthy but for some reason the hospital sent her to a nursing facility were they didn’t do anything my family and I were prepared to do at home but noooo. She would only be released to the facility.

She shared a room with three other ladies and sadly one of them passed away while we were there. It was not a comfortable place for my mother. It was the weekend so she had to wait until Monday so a doctor could evaluate and release her. He did within 5 minutes of seeing here with a parting of “why was she here at all. She should be home.” Well DUH!!! That what we were trying to do since the first day we got there.

But that’s all over with. She’s home safe, healing nicely, and feeling a lot better. She does need supervision at home for two months so I quit my job which isn’t a big deal since it gives me the time to go back to school and set all that up. My dad and sisters help out in the afternoons some. It’s tiring for all of us but everyday she gets better, walks around more, gets a routine going.

Now having a little breathing space I fixed my little glitch and Back IN LJ Land I go. So mom watches Gilmore Girls, Smallville, and Project Runway with me, but Heroes and Supernatural are a bit too much for her. Heee! Now I have much fannish things to say but I’ll leave that for next time.

I just wanted to dip my toes back in and give a little wave to my Flist. We’re all fine in my end of the world so here’s a *hug* and hopeful thoughts that October will smooth out for all of us. = )
