Not so Wordless Wednesday

Sorry we've been away so long. We've been trying to read our friends blogs and leave comments when we can. Our typist (aka Mom) hasn't had a lot of motivation lately. And we've been right there with her. First, we had the HOTS here and no one felt like doing anything. The mom fell on the sidewalk leaving work. That was on June 8th. She didn't break anything like the The Admiral's mom did, but she hurt herself all the same.

First and foremost, let us make this clear: OUR MOM IS A KLUTZ!!! She is just a walking accident looking for a place to happen. So here is what happened. Mom was walking on the sidewalk on campus and she just fell. One second she was walking and the next she was going down like a great tree fallen by a lumberjack. She landed on her right knee and right arm. Even though she was wearing jeans, she skinned up her knee. It was nasty. If you want to see a picture of it the day after she did it you can click here. Two days later, mom was had to go to the doctor because her knee had gotten infected. She was put on an antibiotic and had to use the same salve that is used on burn patients so the nasty stuff would soften up. It was GROSS kitties!!! Anymew, she ended up with a 101 fever and was back at the doctor's for that. Mom ran a low-grade fever all last week. She is finally feeling better and her knee is looking better and is healing. But to top it all off, she started having an allergic reaction to the adhesive on the surgical tape, and then the regular bandages. Thank cod it is well enough now that she doesn't have to cover it.

Hopefully mom won't do that again for a long time. Like never!!!

  9. Oh noes, your poor Mom! Our mom is a walking accident, too, but she says that since she is double jointed, she's lucky and only ends up with a bunch of bruises. She never seems to actually fall or break anything, she just ends up in weird positions or running into things! Purrs to your mom and to all of you!
