the hippy hippy shake

So, my mom is still in the hospital, where she has been since the 5th. Her hip did not heal the way it should and it was bruising more than usual and really swollen. After they took the sutures out and it still didn't heal correctly, they decided a second surgery was needed to see if she had a bleeder vessel. So yesterday I was there with her all day while we waited for them to fit her in. She was finally admitted to surgery at 5:20 pm or so, and they did not find a bleeder vessel but they did find a blood clot the size of the doctor's fist (I'd say about the size of a small grapefruit?). Crazy! And the had to put a drain in her hip for the blood...blech. But hopefully she will be allowed to go home by Sunday, and at the latest, Christmas Eve.
