Mom fell in the bathroom.
She said she simply toppled over backwards. She smacked her head really hard on the tile floor. She never lost consciousness but was quite shaken. Mom's 86, so we thought we'd best go to the hospital to have her looked at. Much to my surprise and my pleasure she checked out just fine. Kudo's to a great ER doc that checked her out thoroughly. Such a pleasure to get good care.
The nice lady who sits with Mom a couple of days each week, while I shop or have appointments, is in the hospital for her second knee replacement. I wanted to visit, so Mister drove me to three different hospitals. Yes, THREE, in order to find her. Then, when I finally got to the right hospital I realized I didn't know her last name. I know, that's horrible! I know all sorts of things about her and her life, but not her last name. It's just never come up. Long story made short, I finally found her and we had a good laugh about the situation. Only 24 hours since her surgery and she was doing GREAT!!
Don't you just love a story with a happy ending?
