The Very Bad, Terrible, No-good Day

My mother broke her neck.  Well, she fell out of her wheelchair this morning on her head and the wheelchair fell on top of her.  Her face is black and blue and number 2 vertebrae in her neck is broken.  She is not a candidate for surgery so she has been sent back to her assisted living facility with a neck brace.  She is in pain.  She is supposed to wear the brace 24/7 for 3 months or the spinal cord could sever. She said that she should have stayed in bed today.  I feel the same way...

Getting a grip number 6 trillion, 5 hundred and 2.
