I spent Thanksgiving evening with her in the hospital, and Thanksgiving day with the extended family I've been trying so hard to avoid. Without my mother there to 'protect' me, it was pretty much a free-for-all session of Pick On Meredith. (So glad most my family doesn't know I'm a dyke; my other life choices cause them enough tittering disconcertion and attempted 'interventions' already. @_@;;) Add to that family members who-- despite the fact I am clearly listed as my mother's emergency contact and in charge of all medical decisions when she is not able to make them-- seemed to think they were qualified to make decisions for my mother... well, yeah.
My mom and I are back at her place now, which is much, much better than the hospital. And the staff is probably relieved, as they were getting tired of me terrorizing them. (I don't do it on purpose, but my mom doesn't call me her 'little bulldog' for nothing. I don't have class until Tuesday morning, so I may not leave until Monday afternoon, depending on what type of tickets I can get.
So, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, as you all deserved. I hope to catch up on you guys soon!
