Meine Mutter ist in den Krankenhaus.

... except she isn't yet. As of 11am she will be, though. Bits will be removed from her on Tuesday afternoon, and the finished article will be returned to us on Wednesday 26th, assuming all goes well. I can visit her any afternoon apart from Tuesday, but she will have tubes stuck in her until at least Thursday, and she has been told to tell all squeamish people not to visit before Friday.

I am trying to write this in a humorous and slightly ironic tone to disguise the fact that I'm worried. I'm sure thousands of people have the same operation every day and manage not to die, but they're not my mother. I could get someone else to nag me, push all my buttons and make me scream with frustration, but it wouldn't be the same.
