20 January 2011


My mom took a terrible fall yesterday, face down into her bathroom. I rushed from work to the ER. I spent 12 hours there...from 4:30 PM to 4:30 AM. My brother stayed the whole time with me and Lisa till around midnight. She had to work today. That's why I missed writing yesterday. And I was on such a roll! I'm sure you'll excuse me. Mom's face is bad, and there's fractures, but she'll be OK. I'm on my way to visit my dad at his hospital in Washington, DC. I still have my wits about me and a sense of humor. I'm on a caffeine high right now. After visiting Dad I'll visit Mom at her hospital in Annapolis. The family is holding together and holding strong. We'll get through this.

I'm so hungry. I just said, I wish I could get some food in my through IV cause I just don't have the time.


PS...thanks for being there.

My heart just aches for you,Cheryl. Already dealing with your Dad's medical issues and now such a horrible accident for your Mom. Sometimes life lays it on a little heavy. While running back and forth and trying to cover all the bases, be sure to make a little bit of time for yourself to relax and eat something good. You will need your energy for the days ahead. We are all praying for you and I know you'll get thru this and on to better times. HUGS

What did she fracture??

Make sure you remember to eat -- running back and forth from Annapolis to DC on caffeine, with no food in you is not good!

Let me know if I can do anything for you.
