Crazy day!

Yesterday was the first day back to school after a week long spring break. I over slept....rushed to get ready.....made it to the school bus on-time somehow. Did my morning route, clocked in at the school....had homeroom, 1st & 2nd period and then my day was over.....my mom called.....her hand surgeon wanted to do surgery on her finger immediately!!!

So, I left work and headed up to the hospital.

They didn't get her into surgery until 5 1/2 hours later because she had had a cup of coffee at 8:15 and the anesthesiologist was afraid she would aspirate.

They had to go in and scrape the arthritis deposits that were pulling on the sheath...it is extremely painful.

She did good and is home and is supposed to be off work for 2 weeks.

This is the second time this year, I had to leave school during 2nd period to go to the hospital, for someone to have surgery. John had Staph in his finger back in September.

Crazy day!

I hope that she has a quick recovery.

I'm impressed that you were on time after getting a late start!

After such a crazy day, you'll have to take today easier just to balance it out! Have a great one!

Hope your mom is getting better and you have a more quiet day today!

Wow! Both for finger surgeries? Your boss is going to start demanding some better excuses! Wish they weren't true!

Hope your mom is feeling well!

Sounds like quite an adventure. You must've been pretty exhausted by the end of the day. Hope your Tuesday was somewhat more relaxed. ;)
