The operation takes place at 8am CST in the morning and should only be in the hospital for a few weeks after the surgery for physical therapy then back to the lock down unit at the nursing home and probably back to her doing laps in the hallway and punching the wrong codes in the door ways thinking she is dialing a phone

The operation took all of 20 minutes and the anesthisa lasted for about 4 or so hours. She did eat a few spoonfuls of soup the passed out again. Just as I was leaving to head back to Oklahoma City, she looked at me and said "can I go with you". That is her normal question when I leave the nursing home when i visit her.
