Quick update: They've moved us to a private room while waiting for surgery. They anticipate it should be relatively early in the morning. We'll be taken back home in an ambulance once discharged, which should happen 24-48 hours later.
Aww, poor girl! Even with the good news, that's lousy luck. I hope her healing is quicker than expected!She's back. Details are few and far between (the doc'll be back tomorrow, so I'm going by her foggy recollection here) but: Tibia fractured (10 cm long), knee affected as well, but if it HAD to be affected, it was in the cleanest way. Whatever that means. Three werks without bending to start with, eith physical therapy in there too.
She's mostly devastated thst she's losing her whole Winter because of a stupid accident. She's an avid skier.
Thanks for all the hugs, dudes!
Historically, it was because medical science used to be so crappy that lots of people were getting accidentally buried alive, so it became standard practice for the family to sit around for a few days to see if the deceased would "wake."I don't understand wakes.
Funerals and wakes aren't for the dead. It's for the people still alive that are grieving. That's why you are there, to show your support for them.
I don't know. I got to see my aunt devastated, barely acknowledging those in line waiting for hugging her. My cousins weren't even there. It's like they do this things because it's what people expect you do.Funerals and wakes aren't for the dead. It's for the people still alive that are grieving.

That happens too. It's great when your needs meet societal expectations, but if not, society's going to expect it of you anyway.I don't know.

I need the hug reaction back!!Been staying at the hotel since the house got foreclosed. First word that the hotel may be sold came down this past Friday. Turns out it was and new owners take over this Friday. And... I have to be out of here by then. That's all I know. I haven't been looking for a place because I wouldn't be able to afford much of anything. The hotel GM has a lead that looks promising, but has little in the way of contact information.
The big obstacle after simply finding a place is having the money to move in by Friday. On my own, that's simply not happening.
I'm going to have to jump on rental sites to see if I can find something safe where I'm not eating saltines every meal. I'm not in a position to give up my phone, so there's $150/month that won't go to rent. If internet's not included, that's going to have to be paid for, too. Will NOT go without. I'd go crazy.
