Wow! I haven't posted to this in a while! Well, I've been in Arizona for 3 days now. I'll be here for another 8 days.

The only reason I'm here is because my dad had to have surgery here. She's trans, and was able to get the surgery covered. :boogie: She had it done yesterday. It was roughly a 4 and a half hour surgery. Had to wait an additional hour before I was allowed to see her. So, I mostly waited in the lobby. For some reason waiting was really exhausting. The surgeon said it was a success and there was minimal blood loss. That made me feel so much more relieved. :iconrelievedplz: after I was told this and before I could see her, I decided to finally eat something for dinner. Went to Rehab Burger. They have HUGE burgers, and I could barely eat a quarter of my tuna salad sandwich. (That might have been my nerves, though.) The fries were good, too. I guess I'll at least have one or 2 more meals out of it.

When I finally got to see her, she was very out of it. They told me that they don't have visiting hours, so people can come whenever they feel like it. They can also stay for however long they want too. In fact, they suggested I stay the night there. One of the chairs can change into a mini bed. But, I felt I needed to get back to the hotel and relax a bit.

I'm back at Dad's hospital room for now. She's gotten 2 bouquets of flowers so far. One from a coworker, and the other from a family she's worked with. Kind of nice. So far the only visitor she's had is me. She said she's very happy I'm here, and staying with her. I'm hoping she'll recover from it well.

For the time being, I have the entire hotel room to myself. It's huge! :wow: There are 2 beds, 2 TVs, a 'theater room' in addition to the bedroom, a microwave, a mini-refrigerator, etc. The only problem is the bathroom isn't air conditioned. It's in the early 100s here for temps, and that can be difficult. Hard to be outside for a while in that weather. Luckily, the hotel has a complimentary shuttle service that pretty much takes you anywhere you want to go in town.

I miss our cats, Tasha and Rosie, who are boarded up at a kennel back home. They seem to really hate each other, so their 'apartments' are separated by a giant plant and are the furthest away at either end of the room. Their 'apartments' have 2 levels, which is nice.
