A metaphor for my take on life and how it affects me.
|It's Wednesday - Trash day and it's still raining. The weatherman says it will rain tomorrow also. Who said "It never rains in Southern California"?
It's was a dry January and February, and most people were concerned that we were headed into a drought situation. The rain we have received in March and now April brings us up too and a little over our average.
It looks like another TV and Book day. We get tired of the TV and turn it off so we can have peace and quiet. It is nice to listen to rain falling on the roof. We have a gas fireplace and that is what we have used this winter instead of the overhead unit. The cost has been a little less than last year.
Change of Subject!
My Mother lives in a board and care facility approximately 60 miles from where I live. She is 94 turning 95 in October. She had been doing very well until she fell last Friday. Evidently she landed on her hand because it has swollen and the pain has been bad. She does not remember the fall.
My Mother was concerned before the fall about coughing and feeling tired. She thought she had Covid-19 and wanted to go to the hospital. The owner called the Doctor and was told that she should not come in and to keep secluded and keep and eye on her. All is well
The pain from the fall has been excruciating for her but the facility has put off taking her in. They called the Doctors office again and was told to wrap her wrist and see if it gets better. They were told to call back in a week. At her age going in and being around other people could cause her to be infected.
There's not much you can say over the phone to help lesson the pain. It's been 3 weeks since I last saw my mom and it's hard to take. All we can do is pray and hope things get better for all of us.
Each of us has a situation we are dealing with in this crisis. Times are trying but we must hang in there. I want to see how it all works out!
Life Is Good -God Bless
