April 10, 2018

Today. Today was a day. Got a great soak-off gel manicure with a new product I’m hoping to switch to. Ran behind all day with my clients at work. Had a great time with all my clients. Got home an hour later than planned. Ate some chips. Surfed the internet.

Then Mom called. Dad fell. Dad had to be taken to the ER. Was I able to go there because she had my niece and needed her to be picked up by my sister-in-law? Yes mom. Getting in the car now.

Dad has a broken shoulder, a spiral fracture in his femur. 2 lacerations in his scalp. Possible concussion? He’s heavily sedated. Surgery might be first thing tomorrow morning.

Dad is scheduled to start chemo again next Monday. That will likely be on hold. This is something you can’t be ready for. These things happen in the blink of an eye. I don’t think dad even knows where he’s at. There’s so much to tackle, so many feels, so many questions. But now we wait.

Today I am grateful for:

1. my mom’s practiced reserve.

2. an experienced ER trauma nurse with a sense of humor.

3. living close to a good hospital.
