good morning everyone!
my mom bunny is still in the hospital. she is in a "step down" room which means she is out of the recovery room but still needs more monitoring than someone who is in a regular room. bunny's oxygen levels have been a little off which we are told is normal for someone post op. she will be fine. bunny is in a lot of pain but that is expected too and ultimately her pain will dissipate.
as i said on the show, my mom's recovery will be a long and arduous one but we are confident she will make a full recovery and be stronger and more mobile than she was before the surgery.
thank you again for being interested and caring about my mom... i noticed on the bulletin board people were asking why i asked for cards, gifts (was kidding about the gifts), well wishes etc from strangers for my mom- well, my mom does like all of it. it helps her through the pain and makes her feel special knowing that even people who don't actually "know" her are thinking about her and wishing her a speedy recovery.
soon i will be off to the hospital- i feel like i've been burning the candle at both ends.. still need to buy chanukah gifts, christmas gifts, etc... let me know if you can think of some great kids gifts- our tradition is 8 gifts, 1 per night of chanukah...
at least i have lunch with rosie wednesday to look forward to (omg!).
