That is the theme song of the past couple of days. Well, actually I've been rewording lots of songs, but that is the least offensive/inappropriate. Yeah, as I said on KR, wish I could give you all an update, but there isn't really a damn thing going on. Nothing is particularly better or worse, which is good, but boring. Tonight we brought my mother a new pillow because she's stiff and uncomfortable, tabloids because she's bored, and Diet Coke because it is nectar of the gods. Actually the caffeine is good for her and it's hard to come by in an Adventist hospital. I've been buying her sodas from the machine, but once I learned the nurses could keep a pack in the fridge for her I ran to Publix. So, yeah. That's about it.
Sue, I will give you a call soon, today was just a no more phone calls for me type of day. I know everyone wants updates, but unfortunately we're just in a holding pattern for now. There is talk of moving her to a normal room in a couple of days if they can get a couple of things under control, so that will be exciting. Nothing major, just necessary steps in the recovery process that take time and haven't happened yet. People keep saying they want to come see her as soon as they can, which makes me laugh because I know as bored as she is she will not want visitors until they wash her damn hair. We are a vain people.
Also I remember a question in the comments about cards, and I don't know what to tell you about that. I know she prefers to remain somewhat anonymous on this thing, so I don't know how the addressing of cards would work out. I will get back to you. Funny story, though. I was leaving the hospital from my afternoon visit and there was a voicemail from my grandmother. She sounds all panicky and whiney, so I begin to fear she's having some sort of crisis at the same damn time. Oh no, she sent a card for my mother, but then she realized not only did she not include a room number, but she also forgot to put my mother's name on it and could I maybe hunt down that card and see that she gets it? Sure, no problem. And that is when I decided today I was not making or receiving phone calls.
