Mom Update

My computer has been on the fritz all day, but my son just fixed it for me. So I'm late, but sincere, in my thanks for all the good wishes!

My sister gave me this update: my mother is in a lot of pain, and it seems she not only broke her arm, but her shoulder is injured. She might need surgery. She is trying not to take too much of the pain medication because it puts her to sleep, but I say...take it! That's what it's there for! And really, who cares if she sleeps? It isn't like she can go anywhere.

My niece has been with her these past few days and apparently took her to the doctor. I haven't heard any more about that. My brother will be there in a day or two, and my aunt is with her. My sister will be there Thanksgiving Week.

Again, thanks so much for the good thoughts and prayers!

Sorry to hear about your Mama. Mine's 82 and I'm always afraid she is going to fall. I think your mama should take the pain killers too, who cares if she sleeps. sleep is good.

Thanks! My brother is there today, so hopefully he'll talk some sense into her. Why suffer?

I'm glad your mom is doing okay, although sorry she's in so much pain! I actually think it's kind of a good sign she doesn't want meds, it shows her fighting spirit!

I hope your mom is not in a lot of pain and hopefully not going to need surgery. She is so lucky not to have broken her hip when she fell. My mom broke hers a few years ago and that was a long difficult recovery for her and me. (she lives with me)
