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.
