Living the Boomer Life

Dear Friends,

I haven’t posted this week as my mother fell and broke her hip. I drove to Chicago where she lives.  She had to have surgery at the age of  95 or the pain would be too much.  She doesn’t really understand what has happened to her because of her dementia.

Many things had to be dealt with: social workers, doctors, physical therapists, nurses, admin at the home where she lives.  Later I will write about this to help some of you who might have similar tasks in front of you.  This is truly the Boomer Highway as my son will be graduating from college next weekend and my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are moving this weekend.  I should be there to help them, but I cannot.  To understand more read my post: Why Do We Cry?

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all mothers and those who do any nurturing and caring.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear your mom broke her hip. That’s really hard. I hope she will recover quickly and well.

    Trying to catch up on your posts; I’ve missed a few and have been busy! It will be this way for awhile for me. I’ve got several posts I need to make too; gardening ones, etc.

    Will be thinking of you and your mom.

  2. Hi Lisa–

    This is so kind of you. How is the gardening project going? I don’t mean not to comment on your techy posts, but sometimes you are just over my head–plus I’ve been all about hospice, hip surgery and etc!!!! Things are calm for now. My son graduates from college this weekend. AHHHHH, Beth
