“Life is like the blink of an eye. What is that worth? Nothing. But the eye that blinks–that is something.” ~Chaim Potok

Tuesday, mom and dad fall. Lots of pain in her hip, mom’s x-ray and CAT scan showed nothing. Thursday, still in pain, she gets an MRI.

Friday morning she gets a call to come to the hospital immediately. Emergency surgery is scheduled for Saturday, if the hairline crack they found continues, she will need a full hip replacement, if she survives the break. They need to pin it.

So I make a deal with Him. If mom does not make it through surgery, He is going to have to deal with me and Pearlsky coming along as well.

He blinked.

Thank God. Thanks, God.
