As you can probably surmise from the photo we have to take a "break" from Gassaway's Adventures for a while.  Cathie was helping her step-mother move about and her father decided to join in.  At 91 he probably should have stayed sitting down.  Anyway, he either lost his balance, fainted or got dizzy and fell on Cathie's leg, breaking the tibia just below the knee.  Thankfully the knee was spared and the break is a clean break and the bones stayed in alignment.  She will be in the full cast for 6 to 8 weeks and we are told 12 weeks before she can put her full weight on it.

We had intended to take off in a couple of weeks in the RV, for Wyoming and points east, but that will have to wait for another time.  So now I have become her caregiver, and I'm entertaining myself pushing her around in a wheel chair.  She's a little nervous when I push her on scenic cliffside trails, but I figure with the drugs they are giving her, she won't feel a thing if I misjudge the next hairpin turn.
