Care Taking

“It happened two days ago. I fell off a ladder,” she says, eyes averted.

“What’s happened since?” I ask as I exam the arm laceration, fortunately non-infected.

“Mom’s been sick. Electricity has come and gone with the ice storm.”

“And how’d you take care of this?” I begin to gather supplies.
