We spent most of the summer on other projects, trips, family, etc. and just at the end of the summer, my mom fell and hurt her head and was out of her apartment in the hospital and rehab in a nursing home for six weeks. She needed some time to transition back to her independent living apartment where she is very comfortable and involved in the community there.
I spent three weeks with her enjoying retirement living which must not have been that great for me because I got a bad cold and was sick in bed at the end of my visit and when I first returned home. I’m happy to report that my Mom is doing well and practicing safer use of her walker and getting around in general to avoid another bad fall. She was very lucky that she didn’t break anything as many older folks break a hip when they fall. I am lucky that I have antibodies that worked on that cold and I’m getting back to normal myself.
