What can I say? I am praying for ----- understanding, empathy, patience and wisdom to know what to do next. I got home and mother's leg from mid-shin to ankle was scarlet with a huge black sore from a piece of wood falling on her leg in the garage.
She told me she had an accident in the garage about three weeks ago, she said "I put put some antibiotic cream and a band-aid on it." Now when you hear "bandaid" you think of a scratch or small cut, right???? OMG, she went to the Doctor on Monday just before I arrived and he told her she almost had blood poisoning.
I went to the Meadows yesterday and took a tour by myself. The Meadows is an age-in-place retirement community in Napa about 12 miles from the house. It is a very nice place - but at every turn the reality of what is happening slaps me in the face.
I am sad and happy at the same time. She is really happy to have me home. I have done a lot of yard work - mulched and planted a bunch of new flowers, staked the tomatoes and planted an eggplant. I love my mom - she is really stubborn. I pray for understanding and guidance. What shall I do next?
