|inside the ER|
Jane followed the ambulance to the nearby hospital and called my son, who notified his sisters. My daughter Sandra showed up at the hospital within minutes of getting the phone call. She had been shoppimg across the street from the restaurant and watched the ambulance depart, not knowing her mom was in it until her brother called. My kids got me home, picked up the prescription pain medications, fetched my car from the restautant parking lot (I won't be driving it for awhile, without the use of my right hand), and took turns staying with me as they took care of everything for me. Sandra cancelled all she was scheduled to do tomorrow -- I mean, today -- and spent the night with me. She and my friend Donna will get me to the doctor in an hour or so. I hope the techs got enough x-rays last night and don't have to jostle my shoulder any more.
Although Jane stayed with me in spite of never getting to eat supper, she had already sent off an email to our friends before I got home. What would I do without such wonderful friends and family?
