Waiting for the body to mend…

Dreary Dad 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.
