Weekly Ephemera #57

 'Ephemera' is probably the wrong descriptor for last week.  I was planning to restart my walking this week with a target of 29 miles (46.7 km) and work on multiple Camino posts but life got in the way.

  • On Monday Mom fell, broke her arm and got a couple staples in the back of her head.  Since then the Wife, one of her step-sons, and I have taken turns being with her at her home.  In between taking care of Mom the Wife and I have been trying to figure out what services and care options are available for her.  It turns out there is no single point of contact for this.  I swear the American healthcare system is completely borked.  Next week we will be meeting with a social worker, in-home nurses, physical and occupational therapists.  Hopefully after those meetings we'll have a clearer picture of how we move forward (yeah, I know, this is an odd time to become an optimist).
  • I started walking on Monday with a 7.6 mile (12.3 km).  This would be the one and only walk I would do this week.  I'm not sure when I will be able to restart.
