During the next few days I will be away from blogdom a bit as my soon-to-be 90 year old mother-in-law fell yesterday and suffered several broken bones.
She fell shortly before lunch on Sunday. We rushed her to the emergency room where she was x-rayed and found to have four breaks on her right side. Her arm where it goes into the shoulder, right at her wrist, and two breaks in her pelvis. She was admitted to the hospital and we are scheduled to talk with the doctor this morning about surgery.
At her age and with the early stages of Alzheimer’s, we are concerned if she can undergo surgery without any serious side effects. One doctor has already recommended letting the breaks heal on their own.
We want what is best for her with the least amount of pain and suffering so hopefully the second doctor for will have some news for us.
Author Douglas W. Jacobson will be guest blogging here tomorrow (with a giveaway) and author Kelly O’Connor McNees will be here Wednesday. Please drop back by to check out their interesting posts. I’ll try to drop updates on the sidebar as soon as I can.
Thanks so much and please keep us in your prayers.
