My mom blacked out and hit a parked car the other day. She is still in the hospital but she is ok. They are running lots of tests to see why she lost consciousness. The car isn't all right. It was declared totalled by the junk yard and she didn't have collision insurance, so bye bye car. It will probably be her last car too. It's sad for her. I know she is grieving the loss of her independence. I am grieving it too. My dad was kind enough to pay for this car. I don't relish telling him what happened. They have been divorced for over 30 years, I was shocked when he offered to buy her a used car to help out last summer. It was all for naught. Or maybe not...this way she came into car-lessness gradually... or something. I just know it will be harder now for her and for us. Now we will have to pick her up to come over. And take her home late at night. Thank God I have Mike as I don't drive well at night since the laser surgery. *sigh* Getting old sucks...
Anyway I took Jamie to see her on Saturday, and Jamie enjoyed the visit. She had never been to the 'hopsipal' before. And mom enjoyed having her grandbaby there too. She should be out by Tuesday or Wednesday. Thus far the tests have been negative. They tested her heart and her brain. We shall see. Hopefully she will be ok.
