She's Okay




she's okay
but prayers are most definitely needed
 
late yesterday afternoon
mom was peacefully reading in her room
eating some of her favorite white cheddar popcorn
 
she dropped a piece and bent over to pick it up
out of the wheelchair she goes (again)
 
 
she's been checked over
and is having frequent vitals taken
 
 
the facility did put some anti tip brakes
on the wheelchair
we're going to see why it wasn't done
after the first fall last month
 
Mom is in good spirits
she really brightened up when
her new companion
Joyce arrived
 
 
my day off so I took off to do some errands
like buy a new washing machine
(done ~ being installed Monday)
finding a new bird feeder
for Mom
 
resting a bit
then going back before Joyce leaves
might just fall asleep in the chair
next to her bed
we are both good nappers these days

This is so difficult to see and read. I'm glad your mom wasn't more seriously hurt but it looks bad. I insisted on a personal alarm for Mom at the hospital. One end pinned to her shirt and the other end was attached to the battery box which could be clipped on her bed, chair or wherever. If she leaned too far forward or tried to get out of bed alone, the string was pulled and the alarm sounded.

Disturbing photos of your Mom's injuries from her fall. Looks awful and can imagine her pain, hoping she recovers well.

Shuttle, Hook and Needle said...

Bless her heart!
There are alarms and a vest she can wear when in her chair so she doesn't fall again. So sorry this happened and I know it is heartbreaking for you to see your Mom be hurt. I remember how I felt when my Mom fell and tore a gash in her arm!
Prayers and well wishes to you both.
