Turnover…

Weekend Update…

We successfully overcame Queen E.’s cancer scare.

My mom was in great spirits and feeling groovy.

Next thing I know she has fallen and cannot get up.

The ambulance arrives and carts her off.

Diagnosis: fractured pelvis.

Another learning experience. Case workers, new doctors, Medicare, rehab centers.

Help.

Luckily, my mom has all her marbles because I think I am losing mine.

My reality… I feel as if I am in the 2 minute drill at the end of a NY Giants Football game.

We’re winning and elated then there’s a turnover and immediately we are on the defensive.

This is a tough game.

I am hoping for an emotional and physical win.

Stay tuned.

Go Eunice and as Springsteen preaches, Come On, Rise Up!!

    oh no – I’m so sorry Toby. Falls are the things we most fear. My mother broke her hip in her mid-80’s, had a good time in rehab, and is now doing just fine (albeit using a walker). Wishing you good thoughts.

    • Thanks so much, Meryl. Glad to her that your mother has made a successful recovery. I keep singing Springsteen to my mom, ‘Rise Up!’ Hopefully, we will get there.
