It's the first day of my new job. I have a long commute, so I had the alarm set for 5. At 4:45, my mothers ALF called to say that she'd fallen out of bed. They don't think she's injured but had her transported to the nearby hospital to be checked out.
I am glad she's in good hands. I don't know what to do about the bed - it's as low as I could find. It was fine for the first couple of nights, too - I think the issue is her overall weakness combined with not being as careful as she should be.
I told the woman on the phone that I couldn't be there and she said don't worry about it, she'll be fine. Hell of a way to start the day.
