At about 9 PM, I heard from the surgeon that my mom came through the operation really well. She had a spinal, so was only a bit sleepy, and responding to the surgeons as well as expected (which isn't too well since she can't hear and probably couldn't understand either, even if she did hear, because of the dementia), and the doctors were happy about what they were able to do, putting a metal plate in her leg. They say she will need at least two other operations and will be in the hospital a few weeks at least. This is her first break, and it is a doozy.
At 2 AM, I heard from the nursing staff that she needed a transfusion. I didn't mind being woken up, and went right back to sleep. The cats, for once, did not disturb me until about 4 AM. I was plenty tired.
This morning, I will go to yoga class, then to my parents' house to return the wheelchair I borrowed and to class. I hope after I speak with the students today I can go visit my mother, but I have errands to do as well. That cat has to go to the vet sometime!
