I know, I said I wasn’t going to blog daily after the chemo/radiation treatments stopped, but I find it somewhat theraputic.  I haven’t put as much medically into this as I had perhaps hoped, but a lot of it I am learning as I go.

Today seemed to go by extremely fast as I worked in the morning as usual, but took the rest of the day off (for the most part) as I had to go & get my mother from the hospital as she was discharged.  As usual, she was supposed to be discharged around Noon, but they don’t have their act together.  She had been asking them since 8:30 a.m. to make sure she was OUT by Noon as I was picking her up, but they didn’t have her ready till 1 p.m.  I didn’t want to wait int he car in the parking lot because I KNOW how doctors/hospitals are…I went into her room around 12:30 p.m. to wait with her & just be with Mom.

We chatted for a bit as I gave her some interesting news & then we walked out together around 1 p.m.  We decided that she was up for lunch, so we went to SaltGrass again for lunch.  I had the potato soup & fried mushrooms again (good!) & she had the steak sandwich that you dip in Aus Jus sauce (can’t think of what it’s called, sorry).

After an hour + lunch together, we headed to take her home (my folks are staying with my brother & his wife).  I then came home & worked for another hour or two until Dawnette came home.

From there, I made dinner for Danwnette & I & then worked on my new server build (for you fellow “geeks” out there, I am building a server with an 8-core AMD processor, 32GB of RAM, 128GB SSD hard drive along with a 2TB data drive (7200RPM), etc.  It’s going to be an ESXi v5 VM host server that I will then P2V my existing Windows SBS 2011 server here at the house to free up that system to replace mine, which is 5+ years old.  VERY excited!  LOVE to learn new things, and VMWare is something (fairly) new to me.
