I am so sorry to know this!! Does she need another surgery? Have they asked you if you want her to go through the surgery? Well if she is in bad pain, some procedure may have to be done to remove the sharp pain.

What a pain! It is so hard for you! Hospital!
Did you ask them for any other option? Some people don't have the surgery...

Hugs,
Nina

I am so sorry she is in lots of pain. Sure hope she will come back to the home to recover later. Check with the home to see when she could come back. At least you have this care home for her to come back to.
You must be so tired now.... It is never ending...

I hope the surgery will be successful.

Hugs,
Nina

I am so very sorry Jags I do hope the surgery goes well tomorrow and she recovers well. Remember to take care of yourself. It's going to be a long haul. Know I will keep both you and your Mom in my thoughts and prayers for the strength and courage you will need... and for comfort for her.

Re: Give me Strength!!!

not much news this morning, I was at the hospital till 3 this morning, it was an awlful night for her. They are finally giving my mom pain maintence, her hemaglobin is low so they are giving her a transfusion today to build that up.. the surgery is scheduled for early this after noon, The doctors admitted to missing the breakage, this is as serious as the first one, not just a hair line crack. heading back up in a bit.
