No Cartoons, But An Explanation...!

I wanted to tell you why I was missing in action yesterday. We had a slight emergency at Mom's.

It started in the afternoon or in the early evening, actually. Mom wanted to get out of her lounger and use the walker. Trouble is, her legs wouldn't support her. That is a recipe for a fall. After trying several times to get her up, I had to call the next door neighbor to come and help me.

A walker is only good if you can use your legs to move around, and at this point...Mom couldn't. She also started talking in a less than normal way, leading me to think maybe she had suffered a mini-stroke. I was very concerned at this point and called the folks at 911 to come and take Mom to the hospital for an exam. Luckily we don't live too far away.

After sitting at the emergency room exam room from about 10 p.m. Friday until around 4 a.m. Saturday morning waiting for all the test to be done and evaluated, I came back home to get some rest. They were keeping her in the hospital, so there wasn't much I could do there. Baby Sis went back up to the hospital Saturday afternoon for a visit and Mom was a whole lot better. We still don't understand why tings suddenly went south so fast. Maybe I'll find out more this afternoon.

Anyway, I wanted to just let you know why I didn't show up or post something yesterday, but I sorta had my hands full. I do apologize for concern this may have caused, but sometimes life gets in the way and takes center stage, ya know? Mom has just turned 90 and at this point in time, all things like this have to be taken serious.

Anyway, thanks for your understanding and I'll try and find some way to keep you updated from now on. Thanks for letting me ramble on about this today. You guys are the best!
