MY BEST FRIEND...MY SISTER
This picture shows my sister Sarah standing strong and tall.
Since Jan. 7th...Not so much!
She took a tumble outside her back porch, broke her ankle and the two leg bones attaching the foot to the leg...
Hey, but she did it all with her usual grace in that she did not spill a drip of her coffee!
Not the "exact" mug but one similar.
My nephew then takes it upon himself to "recreate" the scene of the crime by placing the coffee cup on the sidewalk at the spot where his mother landed and THEN draw a CHALK OUTLINE around the cup like you might see in an episode of CSI or NCIS.
Imagine a coffee mug in the middle of this outline!
The picture was inserted on her birth date for the annual family Birthday calendar!
After a 3 hr. surgery, metal plates, screws and enough metal to set off every metal detector from here to California, Sister is convalescing at home unable to do much of anything but go back and forth on her walker to the bathroom.
I flew up last week to lend a hand at playing nursemaid...However, she has one of these RARE Breeds of a husband who already waits on her hand and foot and NOW he's trying to wait on me!? I have to catch him gone to work to make myself useful. This man does all the laundry so I have to make sure I fold the towels to his specifications!! Ladies, this man is One of a Kind, I tell ya!! If we could bottle him up and sell him we'd all be Rich!!
Anyhoo, I'm not getting much sewing done other than some handwork. I did sneak off to Wal-Mart and buy some cute fabric to make Grandbaby items. This Wal-Mart still sells fabric on the bolt. while mine at home stopped selling fabric off the bolt 2 yrs. ago.
I'll be flying home next Wed. and I will HAVE to tell you in my next post the story about taking Xanax before I flew out, getting lost in the Charlotte airport, asking for help and almost missing my connecting flight. Oh yes, who knew that Xanax and some of my new meds. wouldn't jive? I might as well been three sheets to the wind. I'm a white knuckle flyer that took Xanax last time I flew 2 yrs. ago with No Problem.
This time..as I like to say..A Whole 'Nuther Story!
