I screamed at the top of my lungs ..
One micro-second later the street car she was about to walk in front of used its emergency horn in an ear-piercing blast that probably was heard for a block away as the operator slammed on his brakes throwing the standing passengers in the street car into each other as they all slammed forward in panic.
Inches from probable death !!
My heart was racing like it was going to come out of my chest. When Patti realized what had just happened she too began semi-cardiac arrest. We two sat down and both of us .. stunned .. silently and verbally thought about what had almost happened.
It took an hour for me to settle down. It brought back to me Patti’s terrible fall earlier this year.
She took another very dangerous fall here in Hong Kong that I did not write about. Her head was literally inches away from hitting a concrete wall. I asked her if she would wear a bicycle safety helmet. She said the would not.
I called Patti from a medical supply store two days ago pleading with Patti to let me purchase a wheel chair for her. I said .. “Will you refuse to use it?” .. “Yes!” was her reply.
What to say .. What to do .. I am really concerned ..
