This is my mom’s hand after she had emergency surgery at the St. Francis Medical Center in Colorado Springs last Tuesday night. Yes, there are still five fingers in there, in spite of the fact this photo makes her look like a mutant turtle (or a Sontaran for the Whovians). Keep your eyes peeled for a story about this someday soon because, seriously, I can’t make this stuff up. I think I’m going to start a new category on this blog: Life With Retired Parents. Trust me. It’s never boring.
