Our family energizer bunny, coming close to her 98th birthday and still playing golf and bridge, fell the other day and broke a couple of small bones in her wrist. She feels lucky that’s all she broke because she took quite the tumble in the bathroom (her slipper got caught in a towel and she fell forward, toward the tub, and with good reflexes, she put out her hand to catch herself from hitting her head on the tub. She didn’t feel she broke anything but knew her fingers were swollen and that it hurt. An x-ray proved otherwise, she did break some tiny bones at the base of the palm.
She has an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in wrists and hands so I’m heading down to Wilmington to go with her to the doctor. We’re hoping there are alternatives to surgery, although no matter the course of remediation, it’s unlikely she can play much golf this summer. That has her pretty dismayed.
If that weren’t enough bad news, she’s ever MORE irritated that when ubiquitous and god-awful Windows 10 pop-up appeared, thinking she clicked dismiss, she clicked Install instead and now she has nothing on her home screen she recognizes. I can’t walk her through restoring the computer to an earlier date so I’m also on Tech 101 duty when I get there.
I expect to be home tomorrow night and might be out of the loop blog-wise until then. Talk amongst yourselves. 🙂
