    Hi

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I may be a little slow in responding this week as my mom fell and broke her bad arm in three places. She has HCM and osteoporosis (spelled wrong) so it is very complicated and we expect her to be in the hospital most of the week.

    Thanks for your understanding,

    Sarah

    Hi Lisa, et al...

    Thanks for the warm thoughts and good advice (about me).

    Mom got a cast today instead of surgery as she couldn't use that arm anyway (stroke) and she isn't a good surgical candidate (duh!). If she had had any movement in that arm, they would have had to go in and install hardware, pins, etc.

    She will probably go home tomorrow, assuming she can get around.

    I took everyone's advice and had a very, very long nap today.

    talk to you later,

    Sarah

    Dear Lisa, et. al.

    Mom is learning how to get around. She was supposed to go see her mom and sisters next weekend, but I just don't that is feasible. Her cast is very heavy and she is still in a lot of pain. It is supposed to get better everyday, but not much is happening since she broke her atrophied arm, it doesn't have the resources it needs to heal quickly.

    Got her some clothes to wear over the cast and walkie-talkies so she can ask for help from afar (she has a big apartment).

    Thanks for asking. Talk to you soon

    Sarah

    Thank you.

    It seems that mom's breaks are healing very well (which is surprising considering that this is in a very atrophied arm from her stroke). She gets a light, fiberglass cast on July 9th and more xrays to confirm that she is still healing properly.

    Thanks for all the support, everyone.

    Sarah
