1:36 pm. I was drying a blanket and someone took it out of the dryer before it was fully dry. Grrrrr! If an item is actually dry, people can remove it, but this was slightly damp. Oh well, I've got it hung up in my bedroom to fully dry.
As for my Mom, the staff put her back on the breathing tube and they have started her on dialysis. They weren’t too worried about it. With her breathing, she is still heavily sedated and that is causing her breathing to be slow, so they did it for that reason. For the dialysis, she's not able to drink yet and the fluids in her IV are not being expelled as fast as they want. But she's doing good otherwise. Heart is going just fine. The nurse again told me that me going on this trip is ok because even if I was at the hospital, there is nothing I could do but sit by her bed while she's sedated. As for the minor setback, they expected this, because her health was not in good shape before she went in.
I've pretty much did about 90% of the laundry that I need to do. I'm slowly cleaning up the house to get it in good shape to have my co-worker's daughter come and feed the cats. The house is not a mess, but there are things that I don't want her looking at (tax info, letters from old boyfriend, etc) that need to go into the basement storage. I need to dig out my carry on bag and figure out what I want to keep with me. I bought a cheapy flat iron for $14.99 that has worldwide voltage, so I don't need a power converter at all. My laptop, cell phone charger and digital camera battery charger all have 110-240V capability. The only things that do not is my good flat iron and my blow dryer, and both of those items are staying home. I bought a UK plug so I'm good to go.
Learned from the P3 thread at ADB is that internet access at the hotel is 5-7 pounds an hour!!!! Eeek! Looks like I will not be checking my email as often as I wished. I'll just save it until I get into London proper and go to an internet cafe.
So now all I have to do is take my time getting ready so I don't forget anything and that I don't end up 1 day early with nothing to do. =)
