My mom slowly, very slowly, is recovering from taking a bad fall at my brother's northwestern, IA, home last Saturday [April 25]. She's dizzy and sleeps a lot, which her doc says is a good thing to do. They don't want her out of bed until this Sunday, at the earliest. It's really the pits.
They just sent her down for more x-rays on her neck. I am sitting here looking out the 8th floor window on a rainy Wednesday in Sioux City, Iowa, feeling … resigned.
