Sunny here. Poor mom had a bad fall yesterday. Sometimes her bad leg just gives out and she has not mastered the art of walking on one leg, so down she goes like a ton of bricks. (Last thanksgiving when this happened she got a black eye from hitting my cow femur bone with her face..) And no she doesn't drink, especially since she quit smoking. (Ahem-she says it is now around 4 months. She also says she would kill for a cigarette! ha) So last night and today she is in some serious pain with a headache to go along with her knee pain. Poor mom.
She is also panicking about the Christmas cards for 2 reasons. She has been trying to get the both of us in a nice holiday shot. While I know how to stay when she tells me to, Scooter is all over the place. She is going to try to get someone to come help her. (She says it is times like these when living alone sucks) Also, as all of you know there have been some economic setbacks lately. She has found out that her little bit of retirement from one of the hospitals is gone. At least that's what they tell her. She's trying not to freak out about that. She also wishes her disability had cost of living increases! lol So now she is thinking we had no business signing up for the card exchange. I told her to take it easy, but sometimes she gets out of hand. We will get a picture and we will send cards. Probably mostly e-cards if she can figure out how to do it. (She had no idea that e-card places cost money and besides, she wants to try to send one with our picture on it) She really wanted to send mostly snail mail cards, but that may not be feasable due to $$. Have I mentioned she is pathetic when it comes to the computer??
So she is hobbling around having to use her walker and leg brace today, and trying not to do much but stay in the bed with her leg up. Her knee is about the size of a soccer ball. Kinda cool, but she doesn't think so.
So it may be a day or two before we post again. Mom wanted me to tell y'all this not so you'd feel sorry for her or anything, but to explain our absence. She says if she gets on the computer, she has to figure out the card thing. A couple of people have offered to help her with the e card making and she appreciates it a ton. She is determined to get a nice picture. We'll see.
Also, we will catch up on visiting real soon. We are behind again and are likely to get behinder for the next day or two.
See y'all soon. I'll look after Mom. Oh for opposable thumbs!!!!
Sunny (& mom, the gimp)
