IS IT A FULL MOON?

This so far has been one hell of a week. Monday was good . A rest day after the race. I felt good. No soreness. Looking forward to getting back to training.

Tuesday was the everchanging day. The morning began challenging. The power had been out during the night and the treatment machines were down. After an hour I was able to get things working again. My MIL then came in to volunteer at the hospital. She makes heart pillows for the open-heart patients. She was in a hurry after dropping me off a stuffed penguin in honor of my race. She was walking in the hall then tripped and fell. After a trip to the ER, she had a broken wrist. They put it in a cast and sent her home.

Tuesday evening , I had to facilitate a meeting of my support group(Y-Me). During the meeting, my hubby ran in and my MIL was in ER again after a fall at home. Shit. She had pain in her hip and elbow. Xrays were negative but she was in so much pain they kept her and I was glad. It was 130am on Wednesday when my MIL got to her hospital room and settled. I was too tired to go home. I found an empty bed in our department and slept a couple of hours.

My daughter Hooch came home ofter work. Her bedroom is in the basement. She was going down and tripped on a cat. Down she went. But no major injuries.

Today , my MIL is still in the hospital. More tests are being run. I have done nothing all week. I again am so exhausted that I did not workout.

Not waddling..................

Good thing this was a recovery week, so to speak! Hopefully you really will get to recover before heading down to IMKY! You won't sleep much there! Just be careful. You don't want to be next!

Yowch! I hope things turn around fast - but carefully. No more falling allowed in the Waddler family. I hope your MIL recovers soon.

Hang in there!

I hope your MIL will be OK! Your daughter, too... That must have been scary.

Take care and I hope no one else falls down.
