What a remarkably long day

I'm heading to Sue's for what I expect will turn out to be a full night's sleep. Maybe even "and then some." That'd be nice....

Sue's finally sleeping...as much as one ever can in a hospital, that is. In a hospital, post-surgery, with a continuous motion machine flexing the leg with her new hip. She's been sleeping or what passes for it for most of two hours now. I finished up the last of the day's client work and sent it off for what may well be its final review and approval for printing. It's a 126-page employee benefits guide that I was working on back at Westercon, if I remember correctly (and I'm pretty sure I do).

I'm glad to have a day of such incredible and good memories to layer on top of all of the mental images and memories from last February here. This joint-replacement stuff is amazing. Yes, I already knew that, thanks to casacorona and others. But even that didn't prepare me for what I saw my sister do today, and how happy and jazzed she was immediately following surgery. Cool beans.

One of the highlights of the Bodyworlds exhibit at the Science Museum was the collection of artificial joints. Very cool to see them and see how they are attached to surrounding tissues. Best wishes for your sister and your sleep.
