Eventful Wednesday


Received a call from my Dad this morning.  My Mom had fallen down and hit the back of her head on a bench.  My Mom is on a blood thinner, so falls to the head is a very bad thing.

This is what I saw when I arrived at the hospital:


She had to wear the neck brace until they finished the catscans.  Thankfully she wasn't bleeding into the brain.  She has a huge knot (about the size of my hand) on the back of her head.

And this is how she was looking when I left her house tonight.



She's going to be sore tomorrow.  Please say a prayer for her.  The next 24 to 48 hours because her blood was so thin, the Doctor says there is a small chance she get develop a brain bleed.....

I just found out about Patty's fall by reading a comment on my FB page from a friend that is a mutual friend of your Dad's. I left a comment on your Dad's blog, but I don't think he will know who I am because my blogging name (Jackie) isn't my real name. It is Evelyn.
So, if he sees a comment from Evelyn on his FB page, please tell him it's me. I am soooo sorry to hear about your Mom's fall. I am very relieved to read that she was able to go home, and I want her to know that I am praying that all is well...no further complications from the fall. Tell her that I am praying for her. I will leave a comment on her blog, but I'm not sure that she will be there for a while. ?? I am praying for her, Angie. She will be in my daily and nightly prayers.
Love,
Jackie

I just now learned of your Mom's fall from Jackie (see above). Your Mom is a dear blog friend and I will be praying for her. Please tell her Linda in Tennessee is praying for a quick recovery with minimal soreness. Thank you,
Linda
