Another Update on my Mom

April 24, 2008 at 3:32 pm (Uncategorized)

My Mom had surgery on her left foot on Tuesday and was back home on Wednesday.

She broke all 5 bones across the top of her left foot. Sounds like it basically folded in half when the bail landed on her. The first 2 bones were broke but in place, the 3rd was broke and out of place and had to be screwed together, 4th was broke but in place, and the fifth was crushed and they had to do a bone graft and a plate. That will require a second operation to remove the plate.

She is not looking at 3 more months of not weight baring on her feet, after that there will be allot of muscle to rebuild so we are looking at a year before she will be back to somewhat normal.

She is getting to be more self sufficient each day, but this isn’t easy for her of the family so please pray for each of us as our time, strength and patients will be put to the test over the next few months.

 

God Bless.
