My grandmother is having hip replacement surgery.

It was supposed to be late in December.

I had not decided if I was going to go to Iowa for the surgery or not.

The surgery is now on Wed. (yes, THIS Wed.).

I don't trust hospitals.

There can't be someone there with her all day everyday.

I don't trust hospitals.

I need to go to Iowa.

I need to graduate.

Maybe I don't need to go to Iowa.

Or I do.

Or I don't.

I don't know what the hell to do.

    I understand your fears (trust me on this one! though it is an awful leap of faith to ask you to trust someone you've never met!), but stay in Chicago and keep in close phone contact with your loved ones. Grandma will probably be fuzzy from narcotics and such and will likely sleep a lot during the day. Slip into church if you get a moment on Wednesday, a moment of peace and quiet will help. Hip replacement surgery is pretty routine these days. Ask your family to hire a nurse for the first couple of days if necessary. Keep breathing--I'm thinking of you!
