Mom- she's out of the hospital and back in the nursing home to continue her rehab from the hip surgery, having had her gall bladder removed and no further complications! Thank the ever loving gods!!

Job- First day was today. Listened in on phone calls. Typical Help Desk first day stuff. Hopefully it won't take the usual 4-6 weeks to get my badge because of where the bathroom is I have to borrow a badge or get escorted just to get to the bathroom, much less back into the room we're training in.

Council of Five Nations- This coming weekend. Damn it, but it's the same weekend as Albacon (so I miss seeing people who are coming up for it like [ profile] purpura, miss seeing Anne McCaffery, but I'll be able to see Eric Flint this Thursday at Flights of Fantasy. At Council I'll be running a bit of Living Forgotten Realms (D&D 4e RPGA campaign), and maybe some Living Greyhawk (D&D 3.5 RPGA campaign), at Council.

Podcasts- I'm in the process of getting together the "Story So Far" for the next The Aurora Hunter chapter set up and recorded. I also submitted myself for a future contest for Horror Addicts. I seem to have left an impression on Emerian, the host for Horror Addicts after emailing her about Forever Knight....

They took the gall bladder out on Saturday. Usually it takes about 1 hour, and it took 2.25 hours for her. She also took longer to get out of the anesthesia then they expected, and they had to put her on oxygen after her O2 levels went too low.

So, today they noticed that bile was draining into the wrong area, so they went to put in a stent to cover the spot they took out the gall bladder. The bile duct was too narrow to do so, but thankfully not blocked. They're going to have to monitor her, see if the amount of drainage is too much or manageable (and decreasing). If it's too much, they'll have to operate with more invasive surgery again to try to patch up the area that is leaking bile.

In the meantime, she again woke up slower than they liked. And her O2 levels dropped again. And she seems to be holding onto too much fluid. So, she was going to go to regular care, then got moved to Progressive Care, then moved to Intensive Care.....

I'm going to go insane.
