The news is not good
Just got off the phone with my grandparents. While the infection in my grandma's legs is clearing up, it isn't doing so fast enough. There is still too much swelling and too much infection. Her regular doctor (not the surgeon) put some kind of wrap on her legs and told her to leave it for a week in order to decrease the swelling further. She's scheduled to see the surgeon tomorrow so we could still get lucky and he could hospitalize her to really focus on the infection and maybe have a chance of still doing the surgery on Monday. The pain from the cyst is getting much worse and my grandma is now almost completely unable to walk.
We will still be going to my family for Thanksgiving but will now do it on Tuesday instead of Saturday -- less time off work for Mr. W now means more time off at Christmas. And it also means that the lowercase and I could be staying with my parents for a couple of weeks after Thanksgiving in order to help out when the surgery actually does take place (and before since grandma is so incapacitated). Or not. I really don't know with all the crap that must be done in a lead up to Christmas. Grrrrrrrrrrrr!
