Wesley Chapel, Florida
We went outside yesterday morning to watch the otters play in the water right behind the motor home. It was hot and humid and I didn’t feel very good.
I had just told Al that I might go back to bed for a little while, when the phone rang. It was my brother saying Mom had fallen
So much for going back to bed!
She fell on a curb and apparently broke the fall with her hand and face.
She had abrasions on her chin and hand, and a cut lip. She is on blood thinners, so the lip bled quite a bit.
She appeared to be okay, but of course a little shaken up. We didn’t think an ambulance was necessary, but decided to take her to the ER to be checked out.
They did two CT scans and two x-rays and thankfully didn’t find anything broken.
She ended up with 3 sutures in her lip and was sent home. She’s having some difficulty eating since her lip is so sore, but she’s doing fine, surprisingly. It could have been so much worse.
She has a follow up appointment today with the ENT doctor, and she seems to be up for it, so we’re not canceling it.
It’s no fun getting old.
