Whoopsie doodles….when OT enters your own house

So my mom broke her ankle this weekend, had surgery today, about to go wake her up to give her pain medicine, but it's been full-OT mode here since Saturday in regards to toileting, bathing, walking with a walker versus crutches, transfers, weight-bearing, etc etc etc. Good thing I'm an OT or this would be a lot more daunting. Today as I was in the bathroom with her after helping her from wheelchair to toilet and then standing in corner with back to her for privacy, I had all sorts of flashbacks of working in rehab, lol.

I have so many things I want to write about in regards to it – including how annoying it was that the parking lot for the ortho surgeons was a pain in the ass in terms of accessibility. Ugh. But we did like our surgeon and the center. 🙂 And I think I have a bunch of other posts saved as drafts I can post. And I am finally home to write some of the posts I couldn't write while away! And I will be doing a MAGIC WEIGHTED BLANKET giveaway in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!!! 🙂
