I hardly ever soak in tub while I am alone with mom. I usually wait until my husband is home.
I had a headache and thought soaking would help me relax.
Wouldn’t you know, mom fell. The alert button went off and called for help. I had the bathroom door open so I could hear mom. Well, I freaked out when I saw about 6 fireman walking down my hall! Was awfully embarrassing!
I hurried up out of the bath and went to check on mom. I told them that they scared me to death. They said they were scared to come in with the key from the lock box not knowing if I had a gun and would shoot them coming in my house. Too funny!
Thank God, mom was okay. I have no idea how this happens but every once in awhile mom will just slip off her chair. Same with her bed, sitting on the edge. Guess she’s a little too close to the edge.
Falls are fairly common with her Parkinson’s.
At least it’s my mom. You know I had a really hard time getting mom to allow me to help her bathe. So modest!
But on the bright side they must have been very glad indeed to see a glamorous lady in a bathrobe instead :)
Haha, thanks for the laugh. Need it! We can laugh or cry. Sometimes I really do need to laugh.
They weren’t kidding about the gun. Told them I didn’t own a gun. They looked relieved. I am sure it is a concern for them. Some people will shoot at anyone entering their home.
