Phoenix Update...

My aunt's back surgery was yesterday. She came through with flying colors. We didn't get to see her till about 3 pm while she was in recovery. She looked like she'd just woken up from a nap....LOL She looked great and was amazingly alert for just having gone through surgery. My cousin stayed with her last night.

I just talked to my mom and she said my aunt wasn't doing too well this morning. She's very disoriented and keeps repeating herself. I'm sure that's because of the anesthesia and her Alzheimer's combined. She's also having shooting pain down her legs. Maybe because the nerves are reawakening??? I'm sure my cousin will find all that out when the doctor makes his rounds.

So, being at the hospital all day yesterday, I had tons of stitching time :) All the black is almost done on The Phoenix. Can you imagine how excited I am about that? I think 2 of the most boring colors to stitch are black and white....LOL

And since when did hospital food get tasty??? And the selection was varied and prices were very reasonable. So, needless to say when I wasn't stitching, I had food in my mouth....LOL And right downstairs from the waiting area was the kiosk for frozen yogurt. Don't think I didn't take advantage of that!!! LOL My tummy wasn't too happy with me last night, but I don't care I enjoyed every bite of it.
