No Pix..Just A Rant
Friday I get a text from my sister telling me that they were at the hospital with Mom. Mom had a 102de temp and was a bit loopy...which isn't unusual for somebody her age to get when they're that sick. They did a bunch of tests and she seemed better after a bit. Of course they wanted to keep her for observation and of course my Mom was like: "No way, no how". Which I don't blame her. Frankly they hadn't found anything and she felt that she would be better at home. Again, I agree since the worst place to be is in a hospital with even more germs..especially if you're 90. The other kicker was on the way to getting Mom to the hospital my sweet sister fell on the deck and hurt her knee. So while Mommo was getting tests done, Midge was getting an x-ray on the knee...which turned out to be a broken patella (knee cap). Thankfully it was non displaced and didn't involve the quadriceps muscle so they put an immobilizer on and now she'll need to follow up with an Orthopod to make sure she doesn't need anything else done. So far it was a horrible, no good, very bad day for them. Now for the rant...This morning my sister was taking her dog out around 7am and noticed her car door open. Just because the weekend wasn't totally crappy, somebody thought they would break into her new car. Thankfully, nothing was taken and nothing was damaged. When the police came they informed her that there were 20 car break-ins in the neighborhood. TWENTY! Seriously? Sounds like some trash folks need to get a JOB and quite thinking they are entitled to take other peoples hard earned money or property. If they would put as much effort into working as they do into finding ways to hurt other people, they could be millionaires! And since they seem to like working in the dark and late at night I'm sure there are plenty of places to get work..maybe even 2 jobs. Sorry this is such a downer post. Chicago has been a hot bed of crime lately. Now the suburbs seem to be a target. On the up side Mom seems to be on the mend..well, she has a nasty cold but no pneumonia, and Midge says her knee doesn't hurt too bad and she's been getting around good. Plus since her car wasn't hurt she can still be mobile. Guess we need to look on the bright side just a little. Anyway, if you've lost your "Bad Luck Fairy"....it's at my Mom's house and you're welcome to come and get it back. Just don't sneak in at night because I think they're packing heat and not afraid to use it! Rant, Rant, Rant.
