Six Word Saturday
my Six Words:
Home from Hospital and Rehab Facility
Two weeks ago Mrs. Jim fell and broke her hip. After a partial hip joint transplant (new ball installed in the socket) the following Monday and being transferred to a rehab center Thursday she was released yesterday to come home. There will be out patient rehab next, starting Monday.
How did it happen? She fell while going through a rail type fence because her left foot tripped on the lower board. That happened in Trinity, Texas and we had to get her to our St. Luke's hospital in the Woodlands for the surgery of her choice.
Above is one of the many visitors Mrs. Jim had. [You can click on the picture for a larger sized view]. This friend, Lynn, brought her Mike the Tiger from Baton Rouge. Mike is the escort of Mrs. Jim's college, LSU. They have an excellent football team.
Here is Mike standing guard by the flowers that our daughter, Karen, sent.
And outside Mrs. Jim's window, "Life goes on."

Six Pictures — My Alphabe-Thursday (4th), the letter "S"
"S" is for Stupid Crooks:
Stupid for getting caught between the posts of the sign
Stupid for attracting so much attention
Stupid for trying to escape by joining a car chase
Stupid for stealing a car with easy to remember license plates
Stupid for trying to hide in the checkout line of a Home Goods store
(its customers are all women)

Stupid for trying to hide behind Mrs. Jim's plush toy, a baby Mike the LSU Tiger

Mrs. Jim fell and broke her hip on Saturday afternoon late, September 13. We got her to the E.R. at St. Luke's Hospital in The Woodlands (Houston, Texas suburb). She was admitted that evening and has surgery for a partial right hip replacement on Monday.
On Thursday she was transferred to the Reliant (health care) North Houston for rehab. This Friday, the 26th, we are expecting for her to come home. She will continue rehab either on an outpatient basis or will use home health. We hope for discharge orders for us coming to a rehab facility.

A New Morning
““Morning Has Broken”
Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world
Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day ”
