Last night we went and picked up my mom, and she’s home. :)
She’s so much better, you guys! She woke up early this morning and started laundry and arranged for her friend to take her to get a haircut and worked on her syllabi for her classes starting Monday. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but before her diagnosis she slept much of the day and was physically unable to do things like carry laundry (I’m trying not to freak out about her doing it while we were still in bed, OMG).
There’s still much to do; she meets with the surgeon this week and we have to schedule the surgery as soon as possible. She has to drink water nonstop to keep her calcium from rising (sadly, there is no medication that would help). But she’s doing it, and she’s in great spirits.
It’s such a joy.
I spoke about this week being an emotional roller coaster, but I didn’t really fully explain why. I’ve mentioned several times in passing about the site that has targeted me and my life, and I’ve dealt with a huge amount of negativity directed toward me and my family daily. It’s sucked, but I’ve dealt with it.
Recently, though, this same site and its readers have targeted my clients. Which is ironic, since they hate me for having been broke, but they are actively trying to make me lose work.
I wrote about it, finally, over at Babble (mostly because I did not want to link to them from here). If you’d like to know what’s been going on, I’d love you to read it.
