Well, Dang It (Mom Update 4)

As it turns out, I didn't go and see my mom. I waited and waited for my sister to get off work and come and get me, but she never did. I even fell asleep. The phone rang and I woke up. It was my mom.

Apparently, my sister, after having gotten off of work, didn't feel like driving out to where I live to pick me up. She, however, worked close to where the hospital was, and visited my mom herself. I had trouble communicating to my mom why this made me mad. I get that my sister is tired after working, and I live a good drive away from where she works, but, damn it, this is sort of a special occasion. Our mom is in the hospital recuperating from surgery, and she can't come get me? Sheesh. Man, I need a damn driver's license. Then I won't have to rely on her so much. Fortunately, that is in the process of being studied for.

Anyway, my mom seemed much more lucid and less groggy when we spoke. And there was good news to douse my feelings of resentment at my sister. Originally, the doctors projected my mom would come home Sunday or Monday at the latest. However, she's been doing so well post-op that they're considering letting her come home Saturday, i.e. tomorrow. So, looking forward to that very much.

At least your Mum is on the mend, that's the most important thing. :)

Sorry to hear about the issue with your sister. I have siblings myself and (four of them) and one thing I have found is that as much as you want to be there for your sibs, sometimes for whatever reason it just doesn't work out that way. Anyway, try not to dwell on this matter and focus on the positive outcome- your mother is doing fine and appears to be able to head home earlier than expected.

Also best of luck with your Driver's test. People can be crazy and stupid on the road, but the overwhelming majority of the time they aren't. If that weren't so then fatalities on the road would be a hell of a lot higher. Take care and best wishes!
