My Mother-in-law fell this afternoon about 5:00 and broke her hip. I just got home from the hospital. I brought my father-in-law home. I'll take him back in the morning. The hospital is about 30 or so miles from here. My husband is staying with her tonight. She will have surgery tomorrow afternoon. She has Alzheimer's, so she doesn't understand why she is hurting and why she can't turn over, and why she can't get up, etc..... so it is going to be difficult for her.
One of my husband's sister will probably stay with her tomorrow night. She's having surgery for carpal tunnel on Thursday, though. Another sister was planning to come in on Thursday and take my in-laws to visit some family in Atlanta for the weekend, so she's going to come on in to help out. So, it won't be too bad, as far as having plenty of help.
Thank God my sister is here this week so that Mother has someone to go up to feed her, etc... We are hoping that it will work out that my mil can go to the same nursing home where my mom is for her rehab. It is only 5 minutes from our house. My in-laws are next door.
I took the dresses to my friend today. She seemed very happy! That's always a relief!
I am so keyed up that I don't think I'll be able to sleep, but I'd better go try anyway.
Please keep my husband's mom, and his whole family in your prayers.
Oh yeah, Lil' E's had her first haircut. It was long enough to donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which is kind of like Locks of Love. I think she looks adorable.
Are you ready ...
