What's Going On

I thought I'd write a post here about what's been going on with me the last few weeks.

1 I forgot to mention that my mother has undergone hip replacement surgery. She had it done on May 7th and did very well. A problem did develop when she was placed in a convalescent home after though. She was sent there because she needed to be watched and learn how to walk again after the surgery. The problem there though was while she was having her bedding changed one evening, due to a bowel problem she was having was that one of the workers got angry or frustrated and didn't take very good care of her while changing the bedding. This person just, as my sister tells me, flipped her over to get at the sheets and dislocated her new hip about 2 inches. She was taken to the hospital and thankfully the surgeon that did the operation happened to be on call there. Her hip was put back in without a problem, but my mom won't be going back to that other place. My sister is talking to a lawyer about it. Meanwhile my sister has made arrangements with her friends and nursing folks so my mom can stay at her house where she lives. This is moms new home anyway and she is much more comfortable there than in any hospital.

2 I've been off for a week now from work due to a layoff. I have been very lazy and enjoying it lol. We did go see the grand babies last weekend and enjoyed seeing them very much. Other than that, I've been playing video games and such plus watching movies. Another week of this and I won't want to set the alarm clock to get up for work. I have to be honest here and say I don't miss getting up at 4:30 am one bit. Maybe next week I'll get around to doing some work on my hobby projects. I just haven't felt like tackling anything like that lately.

3 We were going to go on a little trip this week, but decided to put it off till later. Something just didn't feel right about it. It wasn't the destination, because that involved seeing a railroad museum and meeting a fellow blogger. And if any of you have payed attention to my blog, you know how much I love trains. It was just one of those weird feelings you get. I don't know. Some other time though.

Well, that about sums it up for what's been going on here. Till next time BYE!!

My aunt had a weird feeling about going on a trip so she cancelled...turned out she should have gone on the trip as she got into a car accident while trying to stay safe here at home.

That's horrible about your mother. I hope that that woman gets fired!
