Let me just say that it is very worrisome to find out your parent has broken something major. It's very odd to see your parent looking vulnerable and scared, and it freaks you out a bit. Here are some things I learned from this experience:
- Have a sibling who is a First Responder.
- Don't make jokes in the hospital room, not usually a very receptive audience.
- If your father speaks of loading people up with sedatives and a catheter, make sure your doctor knows NOT to release you to his care.
- Having an audience to use the bathroom isn't fun for ANYONE.
- I'm still allergic to Nebraska.
Fortunately, Mom is on the road to recovery. Youngest Daughter and I both got sick in Nebraska, I think because we are both allergic to Goldenrod, the state flower, and cottonwood trees. We came home on Sunday night and we brought this:
Meet Shiloh. She's a 6 month old Labradoodle.
She is Mom's dog, now our foster dog for the month.
Shiloh and YD play. And Shiloh ate Harry Potter the Lego.
Shiloh and George the Superpet play. George is a bit fat and out of shape.
The only mystery this week is how long will George the Superpet be able to last.
