I’ve spent a lot of time in hospitals during the last week.
My aunt had surgery on Thursday, my mom on Friday, and my husband today. I’m drafting this in the waiting room as they’re working with him on using his crutches. I’ve found that I’m surprisingly efficient in waiting rooms.
Friday was the craziest day for me. I was up at 5 AM to drive my mom, I spent the afternoon/evening helping move my aunt from the hospital to ortho rehab, and I ended the day with a 10 PM pre-production meeting in Brooklyn.
You know, hospitals are kind of a bummer. And you have to watch out for germs. But I feel good. It’s nice to spend a day or two out of my week not being completely wrapped up in my own stuff.
And most importantly, my family is in various stages of recovery and doing well.
Tom and I are staying at my mom’s for the next month so he can recover in the downstairs bedroom. You can expect updates on that and, I’m guessing, Tom’s increased crankiness after not working for a couple weeks.
