My mother broke her hip 2 weeks ago. She is 94. The surgeon did an arthroscopic repair and she is in a rehab unit, soon to be transferred to a regular convelescent home for another 2 months. She is depressed and wants me to come home.
I have to leave in X-mas, as that is the best day for driving because we expect continuous rain until Monday after Christmas.
I'll be gone a week. The drive is 400 miles and I don't look forward to it. But, alternatively, I have flown from Burbank and then rented, and that is easier.
