Hip replacement surgery for Mom!
October 15, 2022
I'm a bit limited on space this week, so I will give a quick update on mom and continue Montana next week.
We finally got her in for her hip replacement surgery and it was on this past Tuesday.
Everything went very well. We headed to Fargo Monday evening and we were at the hospital Tuesday at 8:30 a.m.
I figured since it was early I would be able to get back to Roseau in time to work a few hours. Nope! We got home at 9:30 p.m. Her surgery went well, but her blood pressure was playing a high-low game, so she was in recovery a bit longer than expected.
They also are short on cleaning people at the hospital and that delayed her getting into her room, as well.
Overall she is doing quite well and is already doing OT and PT in Fargo. We plan to get her back to Roseau within the next 72 hours.
Basically by the time you read this she will be back here!
I hope it continues to be a lot less painful for her than it was before her surgery.

Joke of the Week
A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question.
The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the footpath, and stopped inches from a shop window.
For a second, everything was quiet in the cab. Then the driver said, "Look, mate, don't ever do that again. You scared the living daylights out of me!"
The passenger apologized and said, "I didn't realize that a little tap would scare you rso much."
The driver replied, "Sorry, it's not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver - I've been driving a funeral van for the last 25 years."
