She’s okay, but she’s a bit embarrassed. It happened at five in the morning on Thursday. She rolled toward one side and down she went. She grazed the night stand with her head, but has no bump or bruise to show for it. She said that she sort of scraped the leg of the bed with her leg, too, but not hard enough to hurt.
The problem was, she was wound up in the covers as tight as the filling in a Cuban cigar. She couldn’t get her legs free and could only work one arm free. She finally “wormed” her way closer the stand and was able to reach the phone. So, she called 911 and explained her predicament. The lady there promised to send someone, and after asking Mom a few questions to be sure she was okay, told Mom that she could hang up if she wanted. About 20 minutes later, the lady called back to tell her that help should be arriving very soon. Mom laughed and said, “I hope you’re right, because there’s a strange man standing in my bedroom doorway.”
Of course it was the EMT’s - him and a lady behind him. Mom said the guy lifted her up with little seeming effort and then they unwrapped her from the covers. They checked her vitals and stayed a few minutes to be sure that she was okay. Jokingly, Mom asked them if they made beds and the lady actually did it! She apologized for being a bother and the guy told her that she wasn’t the first and wouldn’t be the last to have such problems, and that they wished that all of their calls were that simple. After thanking them profusely, they left and Mom lay down and went back to sleep. She woke up feeling fine and still feels likewise, so she must have landed gently. I guess the Lord was looking out for her! © 2016
