A Very Long Day

Never did get the test results yesterday.

I left the hospital at 10 p.m. to go home to get something to eat and get some sleep. Just as I was falling asleep at Midnight, Mom calls the home phone balling to the point I could not understand her.

Then my cell phone rings from the hospital number. The nurse is calling that they are having problems with Mom--can I come back and see her? I head back and when I get there she is very combative and I found out that she fell after I left and before the calls. I was able to calm her down and was able to assess that she did not get hurt bad when she fell, just a few bruises. I finally got back out of the hospital at 3:30 a.m.

Regretfully I could not get up to be back to the hospital before having to get ready for going to my two clients for the day and am unable to get up there before the afternoon but I do need some sleep.
