Uh oh

Russ's mom fell on Saturday and broke her pelvis. She's still in the hospital, headed for a nursing home tomorrow for three or so weeks. She's been in a lot of pain, but is in shockingly bright and lovely spirits. She's the world's best mother-in-law (she even gave me my first pair of binoculars and my first field guide!) so this is very distressing. I got to see her as soon as Russ picked me up at the airport today. Keep her in your thoughts.
