Very Stressful Week

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Good Morning to you all, I hope that you are having a great week. Yesterday, we spent most of the day at the emergency room at the local hospital. Earlier in the day we visited with my mother-in-law Lucille at her care home, We had stressed to her many times that she was only to get up out of her bed only if she called the nurse by pushing the little red call button. She has broken her leg & has a full big leg brace,a couple days before, they are giving her pain medication so she thinks she can walk and that it isn't broken. I guess being stubborn, is the reason she has lived to be 105. We got a call from her place two hours later, that she had gotten up, gone into the bathroom, and fallen, banged her head scalping her scalp and cutting her fore head, and they called 911. We felt so bad, but she is so indenpendant even at her age, she never has or will asked for help when needed. I'm sure she is sore this morning. As she was lying on the hospital bed she says, "I'm going to be sore tomorrow". I said, I'm sure you will. They gave her good treatment, with lots of stitches, ekg,cats scans,mri and blood tests as well as admitting her for a couple of day. We are hoping that she survives this trauma to her body.

    Virginia special prayers for dear Lucille nd all of you as well....hope she is not hurting too much.

    Talking about needing to be independent, I know how bad it feels to be asking for help even for the basics....I went through this myself, but my DGD explained it nicely to me so now i have just taken it in my stride & realise that there are certain things I can't do alone, by myself & visiting the bathroom comes right on top. Praise the Lord, I have a nurse who is by my side all the time, & when she is not around, it is one of the children.

    Hope it is nothing serious and you'll can continue enjoying Lucille for a long time to come.

    Hugs & Prayers
