Almost a Fall
Muddear gave us a little scare this morning. She had a "slight" fall when attempting to transfer from her bed to the wheelchair.
While eating breakfast, I was startled by Little Mike calling me to hurry upstairs to Muddear's room. "She fell and I can't lift her!" When I arrived in her room, Muddear was stretched between the bed and the wheelchair, holding on for dear life. Fortunately, she didn't actually hit the floor, so she wasn't hurt - just a little rattled. I think Little Mike was a little rattled himself.
Although a little confused for the rest of the day, there were no more incidents. We have been watching Muddear more closely today and providing more assistance when she attempts to transfer.
