Sorry to hear about your Mum OH!

Sounds like she has the the right fortitude to recover quickly. Make sure you speak to the nursing & therapy staff before she is discharged - just to back up your nagging about her overdoing it!

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

Come to think of it, OH, you are probably not the best person to advise her to go easy :wink:

oldherbaceous wrote:Had a real scare Sunday afternoon. I had a phone call from a neighbour saying, they had found my Mum laying behind the gate after hearing her calls for help. She had caught her foot under the gate and fell backwards, akwardly and was unable to get up because of the pain in her hip. So i shot down there and rang for an ambulance straight away, as she had been laying there for over half an hour, and i thought that she had probably, either dislocated, or broke her hip. Anyway, after x rays at the hospital, she had snapped the ball off her right thigh bone. Mum had the operation yesterday to put in metal spikes, pins and bolts, late afternoon, early evening and looked really poorly, when i visited last night.
But when i went to see her this afternoon, she was out of bed and sitting in the chair, looking really well. She really is one of the most determined people that i know, in fact, there were another two patients in the same ward that had had the same sort of operation three days ago and still hadn't managed to bear the pain to get up.

Now it's just a matter of trying to stop her doing too much, to quick....


OH how is she doing?
