Today's post is going to be a little bit different. It all starts about three years ago, when my mom had her knee replaced. She got this walker and it wasn't pretty. I wasn't at her house when it happened, so I didn't see the boring walker that she was given. Seriously, boring and gray. Not like my mom at all.
About ten days ago, I came to visit my mom in Florida. As I said in a previous post, I needed to thaw out and I wanted to see her and my sister. It really all works out for me. The day after I got here, I was in her garage and saw the ugly, gray walker. Really, it's ugly. My mom is beautiful, so an ugly walker isn't for her. I had seen where Lindsay at Artsy Fartsy Mama had blinged out her crutches and I told my mom we should bling her walker out if she ever needed to use it again.
We went to the grocery store and they must have just re-stocked the produce and one of the grapes escaped, without anyone noticing. My poor mom slipped on the grape and hurt her knee bad enough that she had to go to the hospital in an ambulance. Not good. She didn't break anything, but hurt herself really bad. She has to use the walker again to help her with her walking. She said I caused her fall because I put the wammy on her by saying we need to bling up the walker. I blame the grape.
