asleep all day

It's been a very quiet day for me and Dad. Mom's been asleep the entire time, and I don't blame her. We had ripped her out of her normal routine, which generally involves leaving the living room couch at 11PM, spending some time in the bathroom (ablutions, meds, a new change of clothes), then getting into bed by 11:30 or midnight. We took Mom to the hospital after midnight last night; I apologized to Mom for having done all that to her.

I told Dad that we're now replaying Tuesday and Wednesday, but the difference now is that there's a bit less anxiety since we're not worried about problems as immediate as stroke. I hope Mom wakes up at a more normal time tomorrow; she usually sleeps about 11-12 hours, and with any luck, she'll be alert and energetic tomorrow morning, the way she was on Monday, before all this happened.

This coming week, Mom's got blood work, an appointment with her plastic surgeon, and an Avastin infusion to look forward to. There's a lot on her plate.
