Wow, yesterday was a marathon! My mom had a total knee replacement. Her surgery was scheduled for 8:00AM so we (my brother A., mom, and I) were all at the hospital at 6:15AM. Whew. A. and I stayed with my mom in pre-op until they took her back for surgery. After that we headed to the cafeteria for some breakfast.
Luckily, this is a super hospital so their cafeteria consists of pretty much awesome good for you food. I had a breakfast burrito on a whole wheat tortilla with turkey sausage. And home fries. Yum! I especially enjoyed that they had the calorie breakdown of the food posted on the menu.
We both ate and then sat around waiting and waiting. I would do a quick lap of the waiting area whenever my Jawbone buzzed at me but,for the most part, I spent the morning sitting and reading.
By the time my mom was in recovery it was almost 11:00AM. And then I just hung out with her there while she dozed on and off and we waited forever for a room. I got her settled in and headed home. I had missed lunch, it was almost 3:30 by the time I left the hospital, and I really, really, really wanted to stop and get fast food on my way home.
I didn't stop.
I got home and the Guys were still napping so I had some leftover soup for a late lunch and called it a win.
I somehow managed to get my 10K steps in, but did have to spend a few minutes before bed doing laps around my house.
On a side note, my mom's surgeon was young...at least a few years younger than me. And I realized I am getting to an age where I am older than doctors. When did that happen?!? Hubs, bless his heart, was all "Did he hit on you?". To which I responded, "I think it's really sweet that you think I am hot enough for a cocky young surgeon to want to hit on." I love that man, I really do.
Tonight is pub trivia tonight. I am going to bundle the boys up and let them run around the neighborhood so I can get a little exercise in and they can burn off some excess energy.
All in all, not a bad two days.
