Oy.

So, my mom is flying out today, which is her birthday, to go to the funeral (which is tomorrow). Gotta love Jewish funerals... supposed to be as close to 24 hours after the death as possible. As least that is what it used to be. *shrug* She's staying until Tuesday. I feel so bad for my great uncle. She talked to him today. He was like, well, I guess it is bittersweet, but Happy Birthday. I just can't fathom losing the rest of your siblings in less than a month. Poor guy. I feel bad for her husband who went in to give her her medication and found her not breathing. I mean, she had beaten the odds, she had lived with pancreatic cancer for 18 months, and you are supposed to live only 4 or less... but she had just gone in for test the day before, and "everything looked good." *sigh*

I woke up this morning and my ankle hurt. My ankle that I had the spinal cord stimulator for. I was like... "Uh-oh." The problem is, I haven't been able to get it programmed to my ankle only yet, so right now, the feeling (the buzzy whatever you want to call it) goes all the way down my leg, and sometime it is very strong, so I have to turn it down. It would be better if I had it only in the ankle, but I have to get it programmed. Anyways, to make a long story longer, apparently we are supposed to get between 8 - 12 inches of snow tonight/tomorrow, which would explain the sudden drop in weather, hence the pain. So yeah, now I know why it hurts. It isn't nearly as bad as it was before the surgery, I just look forward to the programming which should take place in a week or two.

Anyways, I am tired as hell, and we are going to go over to my brother's work in an hour and a half or so and see him so he can tell my mom happy birthday, and so that we can give her the birthday gifts we have had stashed forever.
