Yes last Friday (6-6-14) my mother-in-law fell from her wheel chair and they took her to the hospital for xrays, The Dr thinks that she is to old at 105 to have an operation so she is now wearing a very large brace. We went to visit yesterday and the brace had worked its way almost down to her knee. The break is just below the Right Knee on the leg bone. Such sad news for Lucille, although she has some pretty bad demitia now, the pain medication just blocks out the memory, and the pain, except a short time when I had the nurse come an adjust her brace. The pain from the broken bone showed up when it was being adjusted, but only lasted until it was re-placed back in the correct position from the hip to about 6 inches above the ankle. She only weighs about 88 pounds and the brace seems a little large on her very boney thigh. She may need a smaller one. We pray that she won't be in lots of pain at her age, and the pain medication seems to be working as about 5 minutes after the pain of adjusting the brace, she had forgotten it and was ready to get up and walk. She didn't even remember the nurse Liz, coming in or realizing that her leg is broken.
If you believe in God please say a little prayer for Lucille. Thank you so much !
