On September 4th my 90 year old mother fell and I had to take her to Urgent Care to be checked out. The leg she had a knee replacement on was badly swollen and bruised. At that time they x-rayed the leg and said nothing was broken. They drained some fluid off it and sent her home.
A couple of days later I took her to see her regular doctor. He said the swelling should go down and she should be up and walking in a couple of weeks.
We got Home Health to come out and start Physical Therapy on her but after several weeks she still wasn't getting any better. The swelling had gone down but she wasn't able to stand on that leg. - In the meantime she had to be treated for another problem and eventually I ended up having to take her to the ER on the 7th of October.
It was there they discovered that she had apparently broken her hip and she ended up having surgery on the 8th. She was in the hospital for 4 days and was then transferred to a Rehab center.
My life has been mainly taken up with hospital and now rehab visits. I just wanted you all to know that I'm still alive, cooping as best as possible and missing all of you.
I'll be back blogging someday. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Life goes on.
