I've gone from "I don't run unless someone is chasing me" to finishing my first 5k in three months!
Update on Mom
I finally go tto talk to mom last night. she sounded tired, but in good spirits. but then it was almost 10pm. she had a rough time on wednesday with the pain, but the Vicodin seems to be working w/o any adverse reactions. she's been up and walking (wiht the help of morphine!). she said the first time was extremely painful, but it gets easier every time. she should be home tomorrow.
