In the midst of my introspective view back into the history of my blog, the phone rang.
In the last year, the mention of a ringing phone here in a post hasn't been particularly good and tonight was no exception.
While no one died, my dad was on the phone. He briefly asked how my day was and then asked if I'd be willing to speak some encouraging words to my mother. It was at that point that I realized that this wasn't just a phone call from my dad. Something had happened.
She fell again. My mom. They're in the hospital, just getting out of x-ray. They're pretty sure she's broken her other arm.
I'm beside myself. I cannot believe this happened.
