I spoke too soon!

This week has been even more crazy than last week. While my health is great, my mother on the other hand is another story. It was just last week where we were joking about how she hurt her foot a whole year ago. Ironically, on Tuesday I received a call from my sister in Utah saying how my mother was again in the hospital for another tumble. While walking into school that morning, she caught the top stair and was fortunately able to stop herself from hitting the ground by slamming her face and shoulder into the metal door. Great plan, Mom! After a short visit to the hospital, she was lucky to not have a concussion, but did have a broken shoulder (in 5 places). She will have surgery on Tuesday. I am so thankful that first of all, it wasn't worse, and secondly she did it where someone saw her hit, so they were there to help her right away. I feel definitely helpless because I am so far away but am confident that my dad, with all his patience (we both have a strong characteristic of being super patient ;) ) will take great care of her. Mom, I hope you feel better soon! Wish I could be there, but my virtual well wishes will have to do! Love ya and how 'bout we never talk about your injuries every again! ;)

Your poor mom! I feel like that some days - I can fall into anything and even walk into walls and door frames. I hope she heals soon.
