My mom...

So my mom had minor surgery today on her wrist.  She had a cyst come up that was hurting her & kept getting bigger, so an orthopedic surgeon removed it and fixed the tear so it (hopefully) won't return.  Our family's favorite part of mom having surgery or any need for pain medication is the funny things that she says and does while taking the pain meds.  She. Is. Hilarious.  My dad just called me when they were on their way home from the hospital and said that my mom had woken up and said she "weally needs to talk to her wittle girl." So, he decided to call me and let me talk to her so I could get a good laugh.  This was our conversation (remember, her speech was slurred and she said all her "r" and "l" sounds as "w"):

Me: Hi Mom, how are you feeling?
Mom: (something I couldn't understand)
Me: How's your wrist?
Mom: (in slurred speech) well...I fink iss ok, but it weally hurts a wittle
Me: well, is Dad taking care of you?
Mom: well, he's twyin, but don't wet him twy to put your bwa on you.  He don't know how to do it.
Me: Ok, I won't ever let Dad put my bra on me.
Mom: I want you to know I weally, weally wuv you.
Me: Ok, mom.  I love you too.
Mom: and tell that guy you're sleepin with that I weally, weally wuv him too.
Me: Ok mom, I'll tell Matt that you love him too.  Let me talk to dad now.

Oh, my.  She is a mess when she's on pain meds (or in this case recovering from the anesthetic from surgery), but she sure is funny!  Hope this made you laugh as much as it made me laugh!  Have a good day!
