Technical difficulties, please stand by...

Posting this from the waiting room of the hospital. Roomie's mom took a fall. More later.

ETA: We're back home now. Her mom's resting at the hospital and getting the full sensor scan and is probably going to be there long enough to get some yummy hospital chow. Preliminary report is that it looks like she dislocated her bionic hip. Whether this is a result of the spill or what precipitated it remains unknown.

ETA: ...and reports now are that there might be some broken bones.

Thoughts and prayers as always. Whatever the causality, I hope it is resolved and she is home eating normal food soonest. I sometimes think they make that food just so the patient has motivation to bail asap.

Prayers for all of you, especially Mom. Hope the chow doesn't do more harm!!!

Prayers for her doctors too that they're guided to make the right decisions for her care.

Well, crap. Mine was just a nasty sprain, and it's still being a pain(literally).

Best wishes to her

Oooh, sorry to hear that. Hope she mends soon and well. If she's abed for any length of time make sure the docs are on the ball about DVT (deep vein thrombosis) prophylaxis.

Prayers go out for her soon recovery. That is probably in my future, bionic hip, but I am of two minds on the subject as yet.

Prayin!

Traditionally, it was thought that the elderly were breaking bone from impact with the floor after falling. New thinking is it might be the other way around ie: bone breaks, causing the fall, due to osteoporosis or similar brittle bone conditions.

Will sacrifice a Liberal to the Medical gods in her name.

Not especially new- Old Timer teaching me in EMT skool told me this, and had been telling others this for a long while and that was 1/2 a decade ago.....

Hope Ma gets better ....

Best wishes and prayers your way. Take care of Roberta and yourself as well, this kinda thing has a tendency to be hard on the support team.
