Mum is feeling much better now. She was pretty out of it the first day or so, as they didn't give her morphine right away in case she reacted to it, and has had some other hiccups including nausea, but overall assures me that she is doing alright and they are taking good care of her. She has been getting a good amount of visitors - enough to feel loved but not so much as to be overwhelming. Still not sure when she should be home, at least a couple more days.
I have passed on your well wishes
