In the pink

Mom had a fall and broke her upper arm bone literally in half on the worst snowfall day of the year which was last Saturday.   A ride by ambulance to the emergency room was taken.   Her appointment with the Ortho. doc was not til yesterday the 29th.    On Thursay the 28th , the night before she was taken  by my sister Donna  with severe UTI in which she was very weak from not eating because of nausea.  

What a difference a night of medication makes. She was in very good spirits Friday.    Donna, I and the two grand girls took  her to the Orthopedic doctor ,  she actually enjoyed the get together.   She is 94 and is one strong lady,
  She will have a clam shell cast put on her arm tuesday after swelling has lessened.   She does not want an operationa and neither do any of us as,  at 94 it would be a little too dangerous.

Great grandma and great grandchildren.    Genevieve wouldn't get to close because she was scared of mama's arm being hurt.   She kept watch from a distance.
We hope to get by to visit her tomorrow or Monday,  hopefully tomorrow.

Feeling like the words of Marilyn Monroe today--

 "Imperfection is beauty,  madness is genius, and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring".  
Gotta have fun and live life while we have it and be thankful.

Today I am wearing  my pretty pin and M.M. chiffon scarf given to me by my friend Jennifer,  we have know each other since we were 13 years old.

The pin is a little fuzzy but still pretty and the grape necklace next is a very old vintage piece.

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Oh Betsy, so sorry about your mom's fall and break! At least it wasn't her hip right? At least I would think that would be worse. Your mom is in good hand with all of your girls! I'll be praying for a quick and complete recovery.

Betsy, so sorry for your mom's injury. Glad she doesn't have to have an operation. She was pretty lucky and she must be strong. At her age a fall usually causes a hip fracture. Little Genevieve is so cute, you can tell she is thinking about grandma's boo boo..Take care..Judy
