O:55 The Opening
0:56 – 5:40 I’m talking here in this episode about waking up at 3 AM after falling asleep for about a half hour in finding Mama on the floor, because she’s rolling out of bed. I talk a bit about being scared because not only did she roll out of bed and onto the floor, but we found her lying in a pool of blood. You see, she broke her nose when she hit the floor and any time you break your Nose there is a little bit of blood.

6:30 -7:10 Finding out where all the blood was found on Mama.

15:37 – 16:42 Questioning how Mama fell out of bed.
16:42 – 20:00 things that happen after all the pressure is gone after getting mom cleaned up and coming down from everything. What we do, what we didn’t do, what we may do what we may or may not do, that kind of thing.
20:00 – 25:02 after all the pressures gone and everything said and done, you start second-guessing yourself as to what you did what you didn’t do. Being glad that it wasn’t the only one in the house when this all happened, makes it a whole lot easier when somebody else’s help and get it is to do it by yourself. It’s kind of hard to hold someone up clean someone up and evaluate the situation. All by yourself.
