Remember how once I described Mama’s driving skills as being somewhat similar to the race car driver Mario Andretti? I wonder if the same goes for her in a wheelchair? I stopped by the hospital this past Monday knowing that she got her arm cast removed the day before. I figured she would be quite happy about this new development but would of course still have some stiffness in her arm. You can imagine my surprise when I zipped (almost past but the pigtails tipped me off) her room to see her sitting upright, elbows on the table, and chin in hands 2 inches from the TV screen!
Seems that she has bounced unbelievably from a broken arm to a full functioning one. She even wheeled herself to the elevator to see me out at the end of my visit. God help the staff though…if she drives that wheelchair anything like she drives a car I would be deeply concerned.
