{April 12, 2011}   The positives and negatives

First of all, for those interested, my mom’s surgery went great and she was in recovery when I left the hospital. My husband has an interview at 1 p.m. so I had to come home for a bit. I may be heading back up there later depending on how things go. I’m waiting for my dad to call and update me as the day goes on.

Over the weekend, while my mom and I were at our convention, my grandma(who I call my Nanny) fell. This always seems to happen whenever my mom goes out of town. She had thought she might have broke a rib or something cause it was bothering her. Well today, just as they had started my mom’s surgery, I got a phone call to my mom’s phone from my Nanny’s nurse saying that my Nanny had fallen yet again. She ended up bumping her head and said her hip was hurting her. She at first refused to go get checked out and then changed her mind because the nurse told her she needed to make sure she didn’t have a concussion or anything. So my Nanny got taken to the ER while my mom was having surgery. After we heard that my mom’s surgery was done and went well, I went over to the ER at the same hospital and checked in on my Nanny. She has a huge bump on her head and was complaining of her rib still so I guess they will be taking x-rays or something to figure out what all is wrong. Hoping she will be fine and doesn’t have a concussion or anything, but at least she is where they can help her. Thank God for the nurse coming in and persuading her to go to the hospital. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have come and who knows what would have happened?

Stubbornness runs in our family. My mom doesn’t know about HER mom falling yet. When she finds out, she is going to be frustrated and start saying, “She must have been doing something she shouldn’t have been doing! Why can’t she stay in her wheelchair and stop trying to do stuff!”…..And I know this because that’s what she always does. In fact, when my mom does something stupid and hurts herself, I yell at my own mom and tell her she needs to be more careful. She shouldn’t have been doing something she wasn’t supposed to!…..So apparently I am just like my mom. I wonder if one day I will have a daughter bossing me around and telling me to sit down and stop doing stuff I shouldn’t be doing….Probably. But I only say it because I love her and I care about her. I don’t want to see her get hurt so I don’t want her to push herself to do things she has no business trying to do. And I know she says it because she loves HER mom. But HER mom is stubborn and MY mom is stubborn and I probably will be the same when I get older.

Why does my family have to have such stubborn women???

Oh well…Thank God for the good things today. Thank God for my mom’s surgery going great. Thank God for watching over my mom and keeping her safe. Thank God for all the prayers and blessings sent from my friends. Thank God for the nurse that found my Nanny and talked her into going to the hospital. Thank God my Nanny is in a safe place where they can take care of her should there be any problems. Thank God for the woman who called my husband about an interview today. Thank God for all the good that is hidden in the midst of the negative.

Please continue to keep my family in your prayers and I thank everyone so much who is praying already. You are truly a blessing!

(Update: 4/13/11-They didn’t find anything wrong with Nanny and sent her home yesterday. My mom talked to her today and she was doing alright and had not fallen again, so that’s good! My Uncle is coming in tomorrow to stay with her for a few days. As far as my mom, she is doing good and not in much pain. The doctor said she is already at 75% usage and he was impressed. He said she must have a very high pain tolerance! She does, my mom is Super Mom, I swear! If all continues well, she is going to be coming home on Friday. Thanks for all the prayers!)
