I was very, very scared for her leading up to the surgery, so I think that combined with school was the source of my tension headaches that I'd been mentioning (read: complaining about). I've still got one, but it has lightened up a little bit. My family and friends have been supportive and my boyfriend has been great, visiting me at the hospital and snuggling me to [apparently fretful] sleep. Also, can I just tell you that I hope someday I find someone who loves me as much as my mom and dad love each other? My dad stayed with her all night and slept on a cot next to her hospital bed. Periodically I'd look over and see them holding hands in their sleep. It was so sweet. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it.
So that's what's going on here. Just so you have some visual stimulation, here's a nice sunset over the city (and parking garage) that I took from the hospital window last night.
Luckily University Hospitals is on the Case Western campus (my school) so I live right by where my mom will be hanging out for the next 7-10 days. I'll be with her when I'm not in class or sleeping (but let's get real, I'll probably end up sleeping here, too) so I probably won't have a lot of time for nail-paintage. But who knows! If I go home tonight I think I will do my nails. Right now China Glaze Naughty and Nice is beginning to chip. I didn't take any proper pictures of this polish, but here's one I just snapped really quickly in the dark hospital room.
Looks kinda black, huh? Well, it's not. It's a nice, dark, vampy purple. Kind of a jelly-creme, too. It has that squishy feeling, but it applied nicely like most China Glaze cremes do. I love me a good vampy. Also, please don't judge me. I haven't worn makeup for like three days and I didn't have time to wash my hair last night. I = hot mess. Tired panda.
Alright, that's all for now. My aunties, evil temptresses that they are, sent me a box of chocolates along with flowers for my mom. I think I'm going to nom some of that and attempt some reading while she sleeps. Send good thoughts our way, if you wouldn't mind. We can really use some positive vibes.
