Dear Friends,
I had a phone call from Rob before I left for work this morning to say that Mum had not been well over the weekend. She had some chest congestion when I was there that was normal for her, but it got worse.

He called in the doctor yesterday (she isn't strong enough to fight anything off,) and he said that as soon as she started antibiotics that he prescribed, she showed signs of improvement. He said her fleet of Helping Hands ladies were being marvelous.

Tonight as soon as I got home from work, I called Rob. It was 10.45 pm in England and John my nephew answered the phone. He said that Rob had gone to the hospital with Mum. Apparently she had had a fall and there was a lot of blood. I can  only think that she got up after going to bed and lost her balance.

Right now I wish I was sleeping in the room next to hers, listening for movement in the night.

I  hope I can post a "Mum update" soon saying that her leg is stitched up and she is right as rain. Stay tuned.

My heart is in my throat ... which is ok, I suppost cause my prayers will have both voice and heart. She's become 'mum' to many here on this blog.

Thank you Dave and Julie. "Our" Mum is home and in good spirits. Rob is tired of course, and we need God's wisdom to know if we need to take a next step for more care for Mum. I'm glad I know God loves her even more than we do and that he is watching over her.
