First day of school

My Mom was in an accident....

Tuesday night my Mom was in an accident - she fell off her motor scooter and then it fell on top of her, basically smushing her left leg. She was rushed to the emergency room  (Bill and I met my parents there) and was told she fractured it. She has been there since Tuesday and had her surgery yesterday. She was in for about six hours and now her knee is held together with two plates and many screws. 

She's still in the hosptial and most likely will be until Saturday (we're hoping). She's doing better, but she has to stay off of it for at least 12 weeks... that basically kills the summer. Alaska is not looking so good.

At least she's okay :)
