My something lucky is: Last week my Mum had a major surgery on her hip. It was a long time coming as she'd been living on a broken hip for a whole year. She was unable to care for herself after the surgery so we gladly took her in. DH rearranged our bedroom to make her comfy. We put a TV up there with some movies, loaded the bedside table with fresh flowers and a nice card and put her in our bed.
She was here for a week (she went home 2 nights ago) and is now here during the day only. So I was cooking all the meals for her, changing her dressing on her incisions, washing her, changing her, helping her to the bathroom whenever she had to go, putting her in bed, distributing meds every 4 hours etc etc. So now she's here during the day. I drive her to appts, still cook for her and do laundry.
So anyways, yesterday we find out that I am actually entitled to be paid for taking care of her! They are going to back pay me for when she got here last week to now for at least level 1 personal care and continue paying me for a couple months for my driving her, cooking, laundry etc. So like over 2 months of level 1 personal care pay. That's really going to come in handy and it was such a nice, lucky surprise!
