Mama fell….

My mama called me last night and said she fell and her shoulder hurt, hip hurt and really skinned her knee up. She said she’s okay and don’t come over now. So I didn’t, dang it I should of not stayed home. Anyways, I went and drove bus this morning and stopped by on my way home just to check up on her and what I found was a very tired, very much in pain mama. I did some checking her bones and muscles (I used to be in rehab so have some knowledge there) and immediately called the doctor and got her in. What they found and I expected was a broken collarbone. She’s on some super strong painkillers, has a sling because that shoulder/arm is not allowed to move and on Wednesday she has an appointment with a surgeon to see what he think needs to be done. The good thing, it’s a clean break and just maybe they won’t have to do anything and let it heal but then again ??? Mama is 78 years young and has way to much stuff to be doing to be down like this. It’s Christmas time for gosh sake, her favorite time of year. Daddy said he can’t decorate alone so he said they’d just skip it and listen to music and watch some shows…….like I’d let that happen. I’m going to just see how much I can do between runs, between helping mama and keeping two houses running and everyone fed and taken care of. I’ll make sure it’s a grand Christmas, I WILL!!!

Please say a prayer for mama that she heals quickly and that I can make this a grand Christmas, no matter what.

Take care my friends. Blessings!!
