Lots of health news:

February 21, Molly's mom had quadruple bypass surgery. She was released from the hospital on the 26 and is recovering at home. Molly was able to be in California with her family during the surgery, so she saw her mom and dad as well as her sister and 2 nieces.

My mom had eye surgery on the 27th of February to try to repair a hole in the lining of the retina. She is recovering at home and still waiting to find out if the surgery was successful.

On March 6th, I fell going up the stairs on my way to the library on campus. I was in a hurry and carrying a lot of books. I hit the edge of the cement steps outside right across my right kneecap. X-rays at the ER showed that nothing is broken, but I do have sprained hip and a badly bruised knee. I am on crutches and now exploring the wonders of worker's comp. claims! Yesterday Molly and I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics to get stuff for our textiles class, and I got to learn how to use a wheelchair -- fun! My pain meds is helping with the pain, but it makes me sleepy and my eyes unfocused so it is hard to read, which I need to be doing for school, esp. since I have a paper due next Tuesday. Sigh . . .

Anyway, that is what we've been up to, in a nutshell or a nuthouse.

Take care of yourselves!
