Her surgery went perfectly. She is recovery exceptionally well. She was discharged from the regular hospital and is now in acute rehab so she can get intensive physical, occupational, and speech therapy. She will be there for a week or two which does not make her happy, she was hoping for a few days, but she is doing so much better than before the surgery. Her language use is improved, her memory is better and her sense of humor is returning.

In the midst of all this, my older dd and I are leaving Wednesday for a short trip to London. We take each of our kids on a 1-on-1 trip when they are 14-15 to make some special memories together to strengthen our relationship as we enter the high school years. Dh and my brother will do a great job of handling things with my mom while we are gone and my mom is insistent that we follow through with our plans. It will be fun and my mom is doing so well that I'm not worried about her deteriorating while I'm away.
