The leg bone's connected to the hip bone
In March Mom broke her hip and had surgery. She had to spend a month in the nursing home to get her get-up-and-go back. It was hard to see her there and think that she might not get well enough to go back to the assisted living apartment. I went and lived with Mom and Dad for a week when she left there to make sure she would do okay. It is a role reversal--no longer the child, but the parent to the parent. I tend to be rather bossy so after a week they were probably glad to be on their own. I cherish that time being with them for an extended time. God truly blessed me with a wonderful childhood with a good mom and dad! When they are gone I think I will feel like an orphan even if I am old.
