Good morning world. With the new year begins a new schedule. Unfortunately, my mother has been in the hospital since December 30, 2011 after a fall bruised her tail bone. After x-rays and CAT scans, it was discovered that she had a blocked small intestine. After surgery, which was very successful, she stopped breathing and had to be intubated. She is now off the respirator, but is now a little loopy on the pain meds. So as I work a quasi-second shift, I am rearranging my schedule so that I can go in to see her first thing in the morning. My days are going to be VERY busy. Blessed be.
