Update on Admiral Hestrob's Mom

Given to me by Admiral's mom a few months ago.
Hi Pals,

Anyone who follows @AdmiralHestrob on Twitter or any of her faithful blog  http://admiral-hestorb.blogspot.com/ (AdmiralHestorb) readers  are probably wondering just what happened to the Admiral's mom after reading her very brief post today.  .  Here's the scoop: 

@Admiral's mom has broken her right wrist and badly banged up her right knee. (And her left knee was already giving her problems.)   M called her tonight and she said the following:

“Lost race with a grocery cart because I stubbed my toe. It took off with the power of a jet engine. I stumbled and fell running after it and landed with my body weight on my right wrist, breaking it.”

Somehow she managed to get herself up, retrieve the cart, and unload the groceries one-handed in the trunk of her car. She then drove herself to her doctor’s office, where she had to sit for an hour waiting for the doctor to come in. In the meantime, she called her son, who works in another city about an hour away. He came as soon as he could.

Her own doctor then got an appointment for her with an orthopedic surgeon right away. That doctor took more Xrays and said it’s a bad break. She’s to go back to see him in 7+ days. If the break starts to mend during that time, she probably won’t need surgery. If it doesn’t, she’ll need surgery. She was given pain pills, which as of this writing, are not helping her much.

She is totally helpless as her knee is swollen and very painful anytime she tries to walk on it, and getting up out of her chair is extremely painful. Her son will come back tomorrow to stay with her. Starting Thursday her very dear friend, who lives in another town about an hour away, will drive back and forth every day to help and stay with her during the day. They will be able to get Admiral’s food ready for her and pill pocket, so hopefully Admiral will continue feeling better and keep gaining weight.

Please keep Admiral’s mom in your thoughts and prayers. She said she’s not going to be able to do any tweeting for awhile or make any entries in her blog or Admiral’s blog, nor comment on any other blog.

You may tweet well wishes to her, as she will read them. Just don’t expect an answer.

M was thinking tonigh that if Admiral's mom can do cut and past into her blog or Admiral's, mom could take dictation from Admiral's mom, type it up and Admiral mom could cut and paste to their blogs post - if she wants to try that or is capable of doing it one-handed.  . 
M will call her again tomorrow night to get an update, and between @KathyKeisha's blog:  http://www.stunningkeisha.com/ and mine http://mariodacat.blogspot.com/  we’ll keep you posted.
The most you can do for her right now is say a few prayers for she and Admiral - she really needs them. 

Mario
