Mom walks with grandson

My mom will go into surgery tomorrow for skin grafts. She's very nervous about being under anesthesia for the surgery but I know she'll be okay. She's in ICU due to breathing difficulty. The meds to decrease the inflammation in her breathing tract has made it difficult for her to get any sleep (no doubt the hissing and beeping of her machines and unfortunate news of other patients around her in the same area are unsettling). I don't like the toxic smell of the whole floor which is probably just a lot of antibacterial stuff and medication. It's freezing cold in the ICU...I couldn't sleep there either.

I think these walks are good for her and having a grandson to motivate her is all the more helpful for her recovery.
