I drove over to WF last night to spend the night with Mom and get up at the crack of dawn to go with her to have a procedure done at the hospital. All is well this morning and running smoothly. I brought my laptop which is working great and giving me something to do while I wait for Mom. It will be an all day affair.
Last night when I got here, Mom and I went to eat supper with my little brother and his family. We ate at a place called the Cotton Patch, which was less than wonderful, but the company was good. Later, Mom and I went over to her one of her friend’s homes to watch a movie. We saw "A Love Divided" which was about a Catholic/Protestant conflict in a small village in Ireland. It portrayed the Catholic Church as controlling and dominating and how it tore the village apart and nearly ruined a marriage – it was supposedly based on a true story. It was very interesting. Underlying hurts and prejudices often surface in times of trouble or when stirred by troublemakers. But what was really amazing in the story was the "mob mentality." Why are people such followers? We all like to think that we would not be ruled by the mob, but who really knows. Hitler controlled nations. Fear of man is a strong motivator.
The doc has already been by to tell me Mom came through the procedure with no problems. She is in recovery. When she comes out of recovery, they will keep her a while in a room to watch her. As long as I have my computer and internet (or a good book) I’m happy.
