In the blink of an eye!

Wow, how we take life for granted. Really in a blink of an eye everything can change. Hubby and his sister were in the last 2 days of packing up for her move back here. Movers scheduled for Wed, the 25th. Mon. they went out to breakfast and went to the store top pick up a couple things. Bebo {sister} turned to greet someone and her hip gave way and down she went. Ended up she had fractured the long bone, femur, up near the hip socket. Alot of pain, she is 83 and a tiny 90 lb. person. Paramedics had to give her 2 shots of morphine before they could move her. They did surg. later in the day top put a rod in the bone and a plate and screw to secure the fracture. At 83 she has never been hospitalized, or had any surgery before. But she made it thru OK. Plan is to have her in rehab in the next couple days. That is expected to take 2 weeks to get her up and going with a walker. She hates to fly but right now we are thinking that will be the best way to get her back here. Hubby will drive and manage her 2 little dogs. Oh, and they are spoiled rotten dogs too. He can manage better with just the dogs and not her with a walker for 4 days driving. So I am hubbyless for 2 to 3 weeks more. Her biggest worry was for me, having to manage without hubby. Well that and her dogs. Ha Ha. My biggest concern is for my poor hubby having to deal with all this by himself. But he will manage and they will get her moved soon.

Moral of this lesson, Don't take life to serious, things can happen in the blink of an eye that can mess up YOUR plans.

Had a nice 1/2 inch rain last p.m. that came down in about 15 minutes. Afraid the grass is getting ahead of me. Will have to start mowing a little at a time each day between rains. dc
