Bar fight

Here Mom is recovering from the ear surgery. As this procedure was considered 'outpatient', we were lucky enough to get to take Mom home to sleep off the worst of the effects of anesthesia once she had her sea legs.

The large cup over Mom's left ear was there to keep her from rolling onto it in her sleep or thwacking it on things the first 24 hours post-op. As you can see, it does lend an air of Roller Derby Queen to Mom's otherwise elegant face. Jim Croce would be proud.

Wednesday afternoon was a nightmare as Mom remained quite sick from the anesthesia and surgery for many hours. Finally I got a prescription called in to stop the vomiting. After that Mom was able to sleep and kept down a little jello.
