Today started out fairly normal....then the call came, a close aunt was rushed to the ER because of a fall from out of her wheelchair. She has a deep cut on her forehead and other cuts and bruises. So off I go. She lives in an assisted living home about 30 miles from us and since she has no children and our uncle (her husband) has passed on and she is 92 years old, my husband and I take responsiblity for her. She is a sweetheart and is always pleasant. In fact the whole time I was with her in the ER waiting for them to stitch her up, she never complained. She ended up with about 10 stitched to the forehead.
She has led a remarkable life. In about 1943 she was a U.S. Naval Reserves WAVES and served during WWII. She also worked for the ATF division of the US Treasury Dept. She has always been a very industrious person and a gracious southern lady. Here is a pic of her from her Navy days.
We made it back to the Assisted living home and she quietly told me she was going to take a nap.
