Good Morning Friends, Well I've messed up real good. I fell at the lake last weekend. Twisted my knee. Long story short, I broke my kneecap and tore my minuscus (sp?) The MRI results came back and now I have to see a ortho-surgeon. I'm in a riduclous brace, in pain unless I have it on.
Now for the good part. I'm getting Mom today and keeping her until Tuesday. She is having alot of trouble seeing. Her eye specialest is closer to me. We have a 8 am apointment. The only one I could get until January of 09. We are neither one in good shape early in the morning. So it should be interesting. Tuesday is both of my sisters birthdays. For several reasons we can't get together at their homes, so it was decided that we all should meet here for the day. Mom looks forward to our birthdays. We have always spent them together. Mom and her girls...........Mom and I are one day apart in August.
I think I'll be taking her home Monday evening after my husband gets home. Then my sisters can bring her back when they come on Tuesday.
I'm just so angry and discouraged. This is not a good time to hurt yourself. Two big holidays coming up that I really enjoy. I was so looking forward to BIG family gatherings.
Now the fact that I was holding a "margaretta" at the time has nothing to do with why I fell.
My husband loves to say "She was protecting her margaretta when she went down on her knee". Its starting to annoy me now. LOL We have huge trees all around our place some of them drop the biggest nuts I have ever seen. We call them "ankle busters". Anyway I'm rambling, sorry.
Wish me luck with Mom. It should be interesting. The last time I had her spend the night she got up and said I had her in a coffin room...........WHAT??
She has been doing much better, health wise, the last two weeks. I'm hoping she won't be as confused as before.
Love to all,
