The last week has been an emotional roller coaster. Remember my mother fell and broke her arm in 5 places
bringing in flowers last April on Good Friday. The Dr. gave her hope that her arm would heal without
surgery. It never did. I don't know how she lived with it as long as she did. Only able to use her hand
to her elbow. She finally decided to have surgery on Jan. 7th. It required a bone graft from above
her knee, a plate and screws. She did well with surgery, now the waiting to see if it heals, this process will
take 2-3 months.
She was sent home on Wed. which I feel was too soon, she was so weak. She stood up and her leg
just collapsed. She was taken by ambulance to the University of Virginia hospital again, where we found out
that her femur was broken. So on friday she had surgery with a rod placed in her leg from her knee
to her hip and screws. She is to put no weight on her leg for 8 weeks.
She was released from the hospital yesterday and taken to a skilled nursing facility where she
will also receive therapy.
It is funny how we went into the hospital all worried about her arm and now it is her leg.
Her arm isn't swollen or bruised, she said it hardly hurts. We are all exhausted, I had
went to UVA everyday and spent a few nights. Now I have to prepare myself to get back into
my routine and get back to work. I know mom is on the road to recovery and hope she will be able
to work in her flower beds this year, ( though now I know she will be afraid). Continue to keep my
mom in your prayers, and my father also, he says how lonely it is going home to an empty house.
It is so cute seeing him taking care of mom, he is like a little mother hen. I love my family and my
country roots, my parents never had alot of money, but they sure had alot of love to give! They taught
me the important things in life, family, honesty, hard work, giving to others, to have a relationship
with the Lord, just so much to make me the person I am today.
