Mom had a doctors appointment yesterday because her arm has been hurting her. The doctor said that she has calcium deposits on it and needs to have surgery. She is going for a post op visit next week. The surgery is scheduled to start at seven am so she needs to be there at five in the morning. I can take mom to the hospital, go home and get William and take him to work and go back and be with mom during the surgery. I can take mom home and then go back and pick up William. Moms arm will be in a sling for three months, not the normal sling but the one that wraps around the body. We will need to go and cut her grass each week and take her to get groceries. I don’t remember how long they said that she couldn’t drive. The doctor did say that she would hurt a lot for a long time even after her arm was out of the sling. He also said that eighty percent of the patients that have this surgery need to have it redone. She won’t be able to move any more furniture around or haul any more dirt from the dirt pile.
Maggie has been looking for a job. We were hoping that mom could drive her, now Maggie needs to get her license and we need to get her a car. There is a medical building right by moms house that Maggie applied to that Maggie could walk to if she needed to. She applied last week and hasn’t heard from them. It was a four page application and may have had a background check. If it did, and they wanted to interview Maggie, it may take a week to hear back from them.
Mom has always been so healthy. It seems so odd to see her frail and needing rides. I am glad that we still live in the same town as mom.
