I went to the Encinitas market as usual this afternoon, leaving at 3pm. At 5:30 I got a call from Mom’s cell phone, except it was not Mom, it was a neighbor I don’t know…Your Mother has fallen and we are here with her and she wanted us to call you…..words I hate to hear….
She was out walking the dogs, and “happy” according to her own account, yet getting into the Passion Fruit vodka. Another neighbor who knows me and her and the dogs was also there….God bless Clay….she and the dogs were safe~
I drove home from the market at 90 mph and found Mom in the ER with neck brace, wanting desperately to go home. Bad girl, she knows….She has a completely fractured humerus. She and I looked at the x-rays and knew the result. This means a hanging cast, according to Dad, and no driving or typing; so now that falls to me. I can’t begin to tell you…well, at least she did not break a hip. And she still looks forward to the party. A big setback; tomorrow to the orthopedist etc. wish us luck….the party will go on….an update later….
