A Message from Momma Fancypants

First off, I tried writing this post last night and for the past hour and the only letters blogger would let me type were s r i o f and turned the g into a 6. So weird.

Also, I should clarify, on my last post where I vented about the stupid roadblocks I keep encountering as I try to get into nursing school, I DO plan on cramming for the TEAS exam and taking it January 28 and, assuming I pass, finish my application to the program that is due February 1. I'm not giving up just because of the bs I keep encountering, but I likely will be looking for a job and relocating if I do not get into the program (or pass the exam).

My mom caught up on my blog last night and left a message in the comments for all you sweet people who sent prayers and good vibes her way when she had surgery. Her surgery went well & she's been recovering nicely with very little pain. The doc put 8 pins & 2 metal plates in her foot, removed a neuroma & bone spur, and fused her big toe. Here's what she had to say to y'all:

This is Momma Fancypants and I want to thank all of "daughter fancypants'" friends for your prayers and well-wishes for my surgery. Everything went well and "Demi" or whichever name she answers to, has been a very good nurse to me. We are looking forward to getting out of this snowy, cold place to a warm and sunny beach! Thanks also, for being such good blog friends, bc , "Demi" talks about you all the time and how you make her laugh, too.
Happy days to all.

I kind of love that she called herself Momma Fancypants.

Thank you so much for all your kind words and concern, it means a lot!

Hope y'all have a great week, I'll share about my weekend with my best friend soon :) Registered & Protected

Glad to hear your mom is doing OK. Momma cute is that? :-)

Good luck with the cramming. I know everything will work out as it should.

I hate the TEAS with a passion. Even though you had warned me beforehand what they would be like, I was still not prepared for the mess that compromised that exam. The most ridiculous and irrelevant standardized entrance exam I have ever taken. I am so sorry you have to take them again but I know you will rock them.

Glad to hear your Mom's recovery is going well! Enjoy the beach!
