Today is the big day. Got up super early, around 4am to take my mom to the hospital to pre-OP for surgery. I spent the morning by her side in the recovery room until it was time to wheel her back. Had to leave to take my brother to the clinic and get her a big easter bunny to hug after surgery.
Spent all day waiting for a phone call to visit my mom after she woke up from surgery but they took FOREVER to get her a room. Around 5pm they finally called us and told us she woke up from surgery just fine and was ready to see us.
Spent the night at the hospital with mom because I was worried and didnt want her to be alone. Its a 30 minute drive from the hospital to home and they required her to stay over night. All they had was a shitty recliner chair but the nurses were very kind and gave us extra pillows and blankets. I got 3 hrs sleep total, as I was keeping an eye on mom most of the night to see how she was breathing, reacting to the meds, etc.
