My mom had surgery on her ankle today. Everything went well and she'll be in the hospital for several days. The next few weeks, possibly months, will be difficult but we've gone through this before...rehab.
It's 11:00 at night and I just got in from a seven hour drive from Chicago. The doggies were happy to see me. Poor Galahad the goldfish didn't make it through the weekend. And Chompers the Chief Operating Hamster is still chomping away. My trip to Chicago was very eventful and fabulous. There are many, many stories to come of "The Hoyt Christmas Vacation". But for now I need to dispose of a dead goldfish, referee three dogs playing tug o'war with a monkey, and get ready for work tomorrow. Night.
