From My Dad

re: Grandma

Last night at around 6: P. M. they rolled Mom into the operation room.  This time the doctor insisted that they weren’t going to bump her.  They
got the operation finished just shortly after 7: 00 P. M. and the
doctor met us in the lobby and told us that the operation had gone very
well and she was now in the Recovery Room. She would be in the Recovery
room for an hour.
 
It was more than an hour and at 8:40 P. M,. they
rolled her back in her room [name of hospital, room number and telephone number deleted].

The doctor said that they will be getting her up today for therapy—if nothing else at least just sitting up on her bed.  He expects that twice a day and he said that he hopes that she would be walking this afternoon.  (I’ve found that the doctors have higher expectations than reality allows).
 
She was sleeping
peacefully when we left last night at 9:10 P.M.  Some of that may have been due to the medication that she was on but she looked better than she has in a while.
