Yesterday my 84 year old mum fell in her garage and gave herself a nasty cut on the back of her head. Douglas and I took her to the Accident and Emergency as I knew the gash needed more than me just cleaning it up. Sure enough, she (eventually) got 4 metal staples in the wound and they kept her in overnight just to keep an eye on her. I sent Douglas away after a couple of hours and called him for a lift home when she was settled for the night - four and a half hours after our arrival. Got to love A & E - not!
To say that my mind just isn't on blogging or happy photos or anything else for that matter is an understatement. I'm so tired I can barely string 2 words together and people around me are having to repeat things repeatedly (!) to me to make sure I'm paying attention.
This morning I've been in to mum's house to clean up the mess and to put the tea she was cooking at the time of her fall in the bin. Telling myself "it's just red liquid" repeatedly as I cleaned up the mess didn't help much. So much blood. :o(
Anyway, I just wanted people to know why I'm not here, or answering e-mails or commenting on blogs, or replying to my commenters. God willing, Mum will get home today but we just have to wait and see what happens next.
