It's been a while since I've written. Life has been hectic. I have been frantic. I found myself holding the door open so winter could fly south. Good riddance to that season.
It all started on Saturday, January 26th. Mom had a good day. As always she comes out to watch television after dinner. Catch up on her love of politics. We observed the "getting ready" ritual whereby I make a nice nest in her lift recliner while she readies herself to march into the living room. Her walker parked beside the bed, I didn't worry about her getting mobile. Big mistake! HUGE!
Little did I know that she decided to take the "three hour tour" around the bed away from the walker when I heard a crash. That crash resulted in a broken femur. I assessed her and called 911 immediately.
Thus began the saga that winter brought and ends today as I prepare to bring her home. The following blog entries promise to give insights into a caregiver working to insure a facility gives the care required. It's been a fight. I'm tired, but women in my family don't give up.
So buckle up and prepare to read about a very bumpy ride.
