the things we do for family

My poor mom had outpatient surgery on her foot yesterday and is so sick today. My dad had to go out of town this afternoon so she's stuck being sick into bowls and leaving them (she's has crutches but isn't supposed to be upright at all the first 3 days). So I left work around 10:30 and came over to help take care of her. Got some S.altines and G.atorade and she's a new woman (I think it was really the anti-nausea meds that did it).

In her drug induced state she kept saying what a great mom I'd be...I just want to cry...

Oh, I am so sorry. I'm glad your mom is okay, but it's got to be so hard to hear that and at the same time being in a caregiver role.
