Surgery went well

No sewing today, but the surgery went very well. We got up at 4:15. We got to the hospital by 6:00. My FIL's surgery began about 6:30 and lasted about 2 hours. He was in the recovery room for about and hour and a half. When he got to his regular room he was wide awake and hooked up to a machine that made his knee bend and unbend constantly.
My DH was working on a house sale, so as soon as he saw that all was well, he had to go do some work. I stayed at the hospital with my FIL.
My SILs, 2 of them, were at my ILs house taking care of my MIL. They took her to see him this evening. One SIL had to work so she can be more help after he gets home. She will be needed then. My MIL is very confused about why he isn't home.
Hopefully he will be home on Fri. and be able to do his rehab with home health care coming to his house.
I have a much needed hair appointment in the morning, then I'm sewing the rest of the day. I'll have to quit in time to go to church for our youth meetings, though. They don't start till 6:00. I think I'll go to see my mom really early tomorrow morning. It's good to go at different times of the day so you can see what's going on with different nurses, etc...
Thanks for the encouragement about my childhood stories. Everyone has them. Telling about these has reminded me about lots of others. I do need to write them down, and I will just as soon as I get 3 more sundresses and 3 boys' shorts and shirts made.
Oh, but then I really need to do some serious house work. And, I need to make Fourth of July outfits for my grands. They'll be simple.
Oh yeah, next week is VBS. I'm not doing a lot except helping get ready for it, but that means this week and weekend!!!
AAAAAAAAyyyyyyyiiiiiiiiiiiii..... will I get my sewing done? That is the question?

My prayers are with you and your FIL because I know yours were with me when I went through my surgery. Thanks for the vote on PR.

That's good news about your FIL. You are soooo busy. How did you have time to work--at an outside job, I mean! I hope your FIL heals quickly. It takes a few weeks.

I was thinking about you yesterday waking up early. Great news everything went well as I know yours will too. Your plate is so full. You need to be good to yourself. I know sewing is your happy place..enjoy that time. Its also good your DH has a sale. I guess the business is picking up?

Praise God all went well with your FIL's surgery. God is answering our prayers. Prayer is powerful, especially when we all seek Him together. Have a blessed day.
