I'm in the hospital emergency department. My mother fell and couldn't get up. She got dizzy and her osteoarthritic knees gave way. This is the second fall in less than 2 years. Anyway, we are in an exam room now. The doctor has been in and a nurse a couple of times. We've been here for about 2.5 hours already...

Thanks ANR fam! I appreciate all the good wishes. :bigrin:

So, my mother didn't break or fracture anything, just in a lot of pain. Her BP was 205 when the paramedics first came to the house. The pressure has been decreasing and almost back to her normal level. She's still in the hospital and will likely be released over the weekend, then some physio.

Last week I fell in a bathroom, today I fell on the street. Bruised lip, busted right knee, hurt fingers on my left hand. Nothing broken, just hurt my dignity.

Almost two weeks ago, my wife had major emergency stomach surgery.... again.

I know I long ago around 2014 mentioned in my typical great detail how my wife had a similar episode that was complicated by a hernia leading to 2 emergency surgeries in a week's time due to the first surgery resulting in her lower bowel being twisted and her aspirating overnight in the ER resulting with her nearly dying and being on a ventilator for almost two weeks. It took a long time but she fully recovered.

So anyway, a couple weeks ago, she came home from work, felt fine we walked the dog before dinner, she felt kind of crampy and had me skip dinner and make just oatmeal for her. Within a couple hours, she was in agonizing pain and I rushed her to the ER. Within a few hours, an ultrasound and an scan discovered she had an upper bowel blockage that was about to burst. She was ambulanced to a hospital in the South Bay where they did emergency surgery, again opening her up from belly button to sternum. Her upper stomach under her diaphragm ruptured during surgery necessitating repairing and rerouting the duodenum(sp?).

The first morning after she came out of surgery, she was in such pain, they over-medicated her on pain drugs and as I'm sitting there holding her hand, she fell sleep and her breathing slowed down to the point she was gulping air like a fish out of water. I ran out yelling in the hallway and nurses came in and gave her a shot of narcon in her iv which amazingly (just like in Pulp Fiction) revived her almost instantly. I brought her home Tuesday and it's going to be a month or so before she can eat even semi-solid food again and I'm caring for her 24/7.

OMG. You have both been through hell.
I realize your wife's recovery process will be long but it's good to hear it's moving in the right direction. :gh:
