The fall

My mum fell down yesterday. Hit her head twice against the giant pizza oven wall, minuscule fracture on right hand and serious bruising on left arm. In fact left arm was in so much pain that after round one of doctor, where he bandaged her right hand and put it in a sling, she came home and went back. Her pain threshold is very high so she must have been in excruciating pain. This time she had a CT scan and there are no breaks but it seems she has pulled everything possible in her left arm to the extreme. So she's at home and on doctors orders to stay in bed. Painkillers twice a day and rest rest rest. Not easy for a workaholic. Hopefully by Wednesday she will be up and about and racing around like her usual self.

Sitting so far away I can't do much but Skype with my dad and boss my brother around into looking after them (which he is). But I can and am thinking of her constantly and sending her all my good health waves and love.

What a start to the new year.
