My Mom...

...broke her arm yesterday. Her right arm. And she's 84 years old.

My brother just called to tell me. Apparently, she was putting something in the fridge, and she turned and slipped on something and went down...and there went her arm.

She has my aunt and friends from church to help her, but I told my brother I'm willing to fly out there (from New York to Ohio) to help if needed.

I don't know anything else about it. I figured I'd call her tomorrow--she's probably on pain meds today. Tomorrow, I'll have my daughter arrange to have flowers sent to her, too.

She might need surgery on the arm, so any good thoughts and prayers will be appreciated!

Ouch! I'm glad she's okay and will be praying for her!

I will pray and hope she gets better. I know at this age it is harder to heal.

Thanks for the good wishes. I talked to her on the phone for about a minute. She was half asleep on pain meds. I'll be calling her again in a few days.

Clare, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I'll be praying that she mends quickly.
