Cousin P fell on Friday and broke her hip. Within 12 hrs, she had a new hip. It was a loooong day for both of us. husband and I visited her Saturday and brought flowers and stayed for 2-3 hrs. I did not go at all yesterday. Too much stress with-difficult child/Difficult Child. About 15 min ago, she called me for the first time in ages. She doesn't even remember how to use a phone. Maybe the nurse helped her. She wondered why I wasn't there and she hadn't seen me and did I know she was in hospital? I told her to look for the flowers, and said that I was there with-husband and we gave them to her. Oh. And that I was there for surgery. Oh. She said she had a dream about me and was awake half the night ... I was in trouble and depressed and in pain and had money problems, and there was another person involved but she couldn't remember who it was. !!!!! I have not said a word to her about difficult child/Difficult Child.
