Default Another Mother needing prayers

Very late Tuesday night, my mother, who lives alone, fell and broke her arm in four places. I've been with her in the hospital for the past 24 hours. She is 82 and in perfect health except for dementia. We were in ER until late last night. This hospital is so full and I'm not sure when her surgery will be. We have only seen the ortho doc once. Her pain is unbearable at times and the pain meds make her sick. Luckily she is responding well to anti nausea drugs. Please say a quick prayer for her and for me. I'm so very tired and I miss my family and my fluffs so bad. I hope to be able to go home today when my sister gets here. Mom is scared, confused and can't be left here without a family member. I'm sorry for the long post and any mistakes. It's hard to type on my phone and I've had very little sleep. I hope to catch up on SM tomorrow our later today. Please know that all who have needs continue to be in my prayers.

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...

Oh Robin, I'm so sorry this happened to your Mom!!! I'm sure you are as emotionally exhausted as you are physically! Be assured both your mom and you are in my prayers!

I'm so sorry your Mom fell and broke her arm. I hope they can find pain meds that won't make her feel sick and I hope maybe they can set the arm without having to do surgery.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

I'm so sorry about your mom. I will keep your family in my prayers. It's no fun spending any time in the hospital -- let alone around the holidays. I hope they will be able to set your mom's arm without surgery and that she has a speedy recovery.

Oh my! I will keep your mom and you in my prayers! I am so sorry, and hope they can get the surgery done. She'll feel better, and get to go home.

I am so sorry to read this about your Mother and hope that today will be a better day for her and you too. Hopefully her pain will be lessened once she has her surgery and that she will be able to settle down. Does your Mother have one of those Alert systems since she lives alone??? I know that before my Mother (will be 103 in May) she had a Life Line in case of an emergency when she lived alone.

Lifting up a prayer for you and your Mom! Bless you for being there by her side. It is our greatest role as children. I hope you will be home soon and getting lots of snuggles and some good rest. Hugs.
