From: Portland, Oregon
I have some bad news to share. Two weeks ago Ma Sweens took a bad fall and fractured her pelvis. About a week into transitional care things took a bad turn. The doctor told us that the affect of a fall on a 102 year old body is much the same as a heart attack. She is now in hospice care and being kept comfortable, which unfortunately means a combination of meds that has her loopy and pretty much out. Hopefully as the bone heals, the pain and inflammation will subside enough to reduce the meds and leave her more able to communicate.
Sorry to hear that.
She’s a tough old bird at 102 though, I see a recovery.
The Curse of Mauer is gone!
