Good & bad

A few things I learned today:
1.) I can blog from my iPhone.

2.) hospitals have free wifi and shitty coffee.

3.) don't stand on chairs.

4.) when a nurse says "any minute now" it can be translated to "two or three hours."

My mom broke her shoulder. Humeral neck fracture. Sling for 8 weeks.

Or so they say. We'll be seeing a specialist.

Oh, poor Bredamom!

Here's hoping she mends quickly.

And no magnum shotguns for at least a couple weeks...

I'm sorry hear about your mom, but the up side is that any hospital stay where you can walk in and walk out could be a lot worse.

May a speedy recovery be on it's way. And for the record, I can't WAIT for substandard wifi and government coffee vending machines that don't work. WOO!

Oh dear.

Old NFO said...

Oh no, thoughts and prayers sent for a speedy recovery... and yeah, hospital coffee sucks!!!

Derek said...

Bummer! Best wishes to your mom!

I do like hospital soup though. For whatever reason, it's yummy.

I am very sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she gets well soon!

Amanda said...

Tell your mom that I can sympathize; I've broken the head of my humerus. I was told to go home and not lift anything heavier than a coffee cup for 8 weeks. I hope her recovery is a speedy one and all goes well.

Wai said...

At least she didn't fall on her gun. THAT would have left a mark.

wv: "polasuks" Well, yeah. I don't like it when it's that cold.

Lorimor said...

Get well soon Bredamom!

Not to add insult to injury, but the hospital is probably a CPZ, huh?

So, no Judo practice next week then?

Oh, my!! Sorry to hear Ma Fallacy is hurt, glad it wasn't worse (like a head or neck injury). Waiting at hospitals sucks, period.

I hope the specialist has better news - but either way, here's hoping for a quick and smooth recovery to full function!

Tell Mom that THH8322 hopes she feels better and if she needs anything or any help, she can reach me at work or on my cell.
I hope she gets well SOON!

Robert Langham said...

Bless your precious mom...and them bones.

Brigid said...

Oh no, your poor Mom. That is going to be painful for her. She's tough like you are, but no one should have to deal with that.

Hang in there and call if you need to chat.

Tam said...

Oh noes!

Pass on my Get Well wishes.
