Catchin' Up

I can't believe how far behind I've gotten with my posts, so over the next few days, I'm going to try to get caught up. On August 15th, my Mom came down to spend the weekend with me to celebrate my birthday. We spent the afternoon at my darlin' daughter's house playing with my gorgeous grandchildren and then in the evening, we went to Broad Ripple to The Spin to listen to my baby boy's band. We had a great time, but when we were getting ready to leave, my Mom fell and broke her knee in two places!!! After a long session in ER (we were up 27 hours without shut-eye -- it was ugly), I packed her up and took her home to see her regular Dr. and a specialist. Indeed, her knee was broken and on the following Wednesday, she had knee replacement surgery. To make a long story short, she is recovering so well that she left on the 30th for a 9-day cruise to Alaska!! Ain't modern medicine somethin'?!? (No pictures -- this was not an event we wanted to capture for posterity ;0)
