Brenda’s Injuries Cause Delays

Your patience is greatly appreciated as you may experience temporary delays in posts on over the next couple of weeks.

Wednesday, July 8, my wife, Brenda, and I made a trip down to the bayou behind our home just before bedtime. We went to bait up a trotline that we keep across our boat ramp in hopes of catching a catfish or two. We got our four hooks baited, no snakes ate us in the dark and we headed back up the hill to our house. We were walking on the wooden deck, wet from a recent rain, almost to the back door when I heard a thud behind me and heard Brenda scream. I wheeled around to see her lying on her right side. I asked if she were OK, and she said, “No.”

I asked if she could get up and the answer was the same. She said her left leg and right arm hurt and, sure enough, both were broken.

She had surgery Friday and will probably be in a rehabilitation facility for a couple of weeks before being allowed to go home.

Meanwhile, I’m sleeping at the hospital, going to work, going back to the hospital at lunchtime, going back to work, returning to the hospital after work then going home to check on Martha and give her urinary tract infection medication before making the trek back to spend the night at the hospital.

My routine will be the same until Brenda can come home, which means my day is a lot longer than the usually overlong day I already have.

I will keep you posted on her progress.

Your prayers are appreciated.

See you Monday, Dr. Randolph.
