Well, after hearing a very satisfactory report from the Care Leaders at my mothers care home and feeling good for her, she has taken another fall. Hopefully not too serious, but she bumped her head so they are watching her for any undue trauma. She has a head like a rock and has taken some violent falls on her face that turned her fair complexion to shades of blue. But one day her head will not like what she does to it and then we will have to deal with the events of that fall. So I wait here for a phone call to say she is fine, or they want her checked out by the hospital. She wouldn't go if she had her way, but that decision is no longer hers. And we do what we can to make her comfortable through her convelescence once again. For a 91 year old lady, she is still feisty and independent as her body will allow. I marvel at her, but still wonder what comes next when the phone rings from her home.
