Yesterday’s post was supposed to be a reflection on this year’s One Little Word Choice. and today I was going to share a Year-in-Review. so I’d be ready on Friday for one last wrap-up.
Instead, today I have a different post to share … best laid plans and all that … my mom dislocated her hip early yesterday morning – it’s back in place, thank goodness – but it’s going to be a while until she’s fully recovered. Karen and I spent most of yesterday camped out in my car in the emergency room parking lot. Grateful not only for her company, but also for knitting, snacks (thanks to Marc and Sara), and a nearby medical building with clean bathrooms.
Karen spent last night with my mom and we’ll (my brother, sister, and I all live close by) figure out a game plan this morning for the next couple of days. Our first priority (after a few groceries) is getting our mom in to see an orthopedic. The hip that was dislocated is an artificial one, from 2000 (and the other hip is also artificial, from 1999) … we need to be sure there won’t be any more dislocations!
If I’m not back here before Saturday, best wishes for a safe, healthy, and happy new year!
I’ll leave you with a photo of the amaryllis … fully opened now (that the Christmas decorations have been put away?!)!and a favorite, not-too-blurry photo of our little family together on Christmas Day.
(p.s. close readers might recognize my sweater … yes! Shifty made her debut!)
