Update on My Mom

Sorry that this update is a day late.  I was going to update last night, but my computer was being used in a computer game between my husband and his friends. 

So, my mom went into the doctor yesterday, and he looked at her x-rays, and indeed something is broken.  She actually has three fractures, two small ones and a big one.  Picture your arm bone.  You know where it turns ball shaped to fit into the shoulder socket?  That's where her arm is broken.  There is a fracture all the way through it, and then two smaller fractures on each side.  She's going to be in a sling for 6 weeks, but as of now, no surgery will be needed.  She has to go back to the doctor in two weeks for more x-rays to see how she is healing.

Thanks for your kind thoughts!  It meant a lot to me to have your support!  I'll keep you updated if anything changes!


  1. Such a relief that surgery shouldn't be needed but it still sounds like healing is going to take quite some time.. I hope she does well and it goes quickly!

  2. Yeeks! I guess it's not the kind of break they can put in a cast? Hope she heals very quickly from this.
