The phone rang at midnight. Never good. Mother had fallen. Discussion with the nurse as to what to do. Nothing seemed broken or dislocated. They would monitor her through the night.
7 a.m. and the phone rang again. Lots of pain. So. Off to the hospital to see what is what. They have her comfortable. They've done X Rays. Talking about CT scans. We're all thinking she may have a broken rib.
For an emergency department, it's pretty quiet around here. I can hear what may be the heating system chugging away in the walls.
Or it may be the breathing of the building.
Here we are. Breathing too.
