She said she is staying in bed today. Her ankle, where she broke it, is swollen and extremely painful today. She said she'd been reading a book that Rose Mary brought and working a word search puzzle book.
Someone came to help her get the laptop set up yesterday - Zelda told her what password she wanted to use but then when Zelda tried to get into the computer later...the password didn't work. So, today someone is supposed to come and check on that.
She sends her love to all her friends here.
That was about it; she sounded weak and tired, so we didn't stay on the phone long.

He does not have those so-called "squirrel cages" on his legs. He does have screws & pins holding some bones together. I'll start at the bottom & work my way up.
The 3 smallest toes on his left foot are broken. The leg cast covers them.
One bone in his lower left leg was broken just above the ankle. He has screws in it. This same bone was also broken just below the knee, more screws. He said there was a pin inside the bone on each end to hold it straight.
His left pelvis was cracked in 2 places. One place in front, one in back just behind the hip joint.
Just above his right ankle, both bones in his leg were broken. This time, they put screws & pins.
Both knees were shattered. It may be 2 years before they can get him to walk with a cane. He will always walk with a limp.
Going up a little higher, he has some cracked vertebrae in his back & 2 or 3 broken vertebrae in his neck.
He lost his hearing in his right ear, but, the doctors think it may come back later. He still has a bruise on the right side of his brain.
He doing good to be alive. GOD was certainly watching over him that day.
Dawn said last night that she didn't know she married a man old enough to be her uncle. I'm 65, John is 67.

Well, turns out she was just overwhelmed because the laptop had arrived. And there's a plausible explanation as to why it took so long.
Seems the UPS truck arrived with several boxes of cleaning/maintenance supplies and among all the boxes was Zelda's laptop. The maintenance man just signed for it all and put it all in the supply room. Then...someone noticed that this one pkg. was meant for Zelda and not for the facility. It was brought to her room this morning and she's just beside herself with gratitude and love for all of you who helped to get this to her.
Thank you Connie for doing all the leg work to make this happen. Zelda has tried to call you this morning but apparently you're not home.
The laptop is plugged in and charging now...and there's a lady from the office who will come down to Zelda's room once it's all charged up and ready to go to help her know how to use it and how to get on line.
So, on Zee's behalf. "THANK YOU & MAY GOD BLESS YOU."

I asked her if she had recited a package lately. She rattled off the packages but no computer to her yet.
Now, before I tell you the next thing, no one "panic". I have this under control.
According to Amazon, her computer was delivered to the front desk last Wednesday, August 17th.
I didn't tell Zelda it was a comuter but I asked her to check on a "very important package" that was deliver r doing last Wednesday. I told who signed for it. So, she's checking on that when the employees get there in the am.
If they say they haven't received it, then, of course, I'll be on the phone with Amazon immediately after that.
Please be patient while this mystery plays out. Who knows, it may be in Zelda's hands by noon:-)
Will keep you in the loop as I play Angie Dickenson. Sleep well everyone.♡

She sounded short of breath as she was talking and had called for the nurse to put her oxygen on for a little while.
Aside from that she said she was doing okay. She's getting a pedicure this afternoon. :-)

She did not mention the computer and, of course, I didn't ask. Should be there this week!
Can't wait till she gets it.
Donations keep dribbling in. I'll give you another total either tomorrow or Tuesday.
Have a great evening and sleep well.
