So, my niece did great with her appendectomy and went home from the hospital the very next day. Yay!
My mother was finally moved from ICU to a regular room late Friday night. At this point we don't know what's happening next. Surgery may be off the table. The surgeon did an aspiration of her leg and the fluid didn't look infected, but we are waiting for the results of the cultures to come back. Nevertheless, she is looking at a few weeks of IV antibiotics.
This week was hectic, but fortunately work was not too bad since we settled 3 big cases last week. I billed an abysmally low number of hours because I just couldn't focus and I was taking advantage of the peace and quiet of my office to take care of personal issues. I had to attend a big schmoozefest Thursday morning, where I was seated between a state legislator and the former mayor of Big City. I really liked the legislator, not so much the former mayor. And on Friday I got a work-related call from a government bigwig that left me shocked (in a good way).
I was in bed by 9:30 both Thursday and Friday nights, but I think I have finally caught up on sleep.
The twins left for a GS camp out on Friday afternoon. We went to dinner with PS, who enjoys getting to be the only child for the weekend. We had hoped to take her to a local theater that performs melodramas where you get to cheer the hero and throw popcorn at the villain, but sadly it was sold out both Friday and Saturday nights. So last night we let her invite a friend over while DH and I went to see The Artist. I really wasn't particularly interested in seeing this movie and honestly thought it looked boring. But I loved it! It was really cute and one of the best movies I've seen in a while.
Today I might go into the office for a couple of hours to make up for my slacking earlier in the week, but not much else on the agenda.
So yay for a relaxing weekend!
