Not many posts from me this past week. Last Thursday, my mother broke her hip, fell to the floor of her apartment, and lay there yelling for help for 7 hours until she was discovered by the staff when she didn't appear for lunch.

She was operated on Saturday. Fortunately, she didn't need the full hip replacement -- a rod and pin sufficed -- but her age of 85 has her recuperating slowly, and after the hospital releases her, she'll go to a rehab center for a couple weeks.

So I have been, and will be, visiting her for a while, a 30 mile drive each way. I'll post about her progress as developments occur.

So sorry to hear about your mom, Chuck. How awful to have to lie there in agony for seven hours before help arrives!
