My Mom took a very bad fall yesterday. She may have had a seizure, or heart attack before the fall. She is stable, but still critical in a CCU unit. She is 90 yrs. old, and still a fighter. This fall broke her jaw in 2 places, her nose, and cheekbones. Aircare was called in. She was still trying to crack jokes with the paramedics. She is in UC hospital which is a fantastic hospital. My mom raised me as a single mother after my Dad passed when I was 9 yrs. old. I've had her in my life 50 yrs. now, and I guess you could say I'm her baby being the youngest with 4 older sisters . I still believe she can pull through this, but it will have to be a nursing home from here. There will be lots of plastic surgery on very elderly bones if she pulls through this next couple of days. Thanks, Kevin

Kevin - I just took a moment to send up a prayer for you and your Mom - if it is any consolation - my Mom fell on May 3rd (she is 86) and ruptured her spleen - she was on the critical list for 9 days, and was not allowed to move - from there she went to a nursing home rehab, as her muscles had atrophied. (She hated it there, too many "old people").....here is the miracle - we had a trip booked for a year to Europe - my whole fmaily - and my Mom came - we left on July 7th (2 months after her fall), and we boggied around Switzerland, Italy and France for a couple of weeks - again, w/my family and a bunch of high schoolers! MY MOM KEPT UP WITH US ALL - she was an inspiration to most of these kids - nobody would dare complain about blisters or hurting feet - if this 86 year old woman was kickin arse and takin names Jersey style.

The point is - your Mom sounds like a strong woman - we worry so much about falls in the elderly - and it CAN set them back.....but it DOES NOT HAVE TO....your and your sisters love and encouragment will help her fight, if that is in God's plan. I will also pray for her Doctors. Please keep us up to date on her recovery.

Know God
Know Peace
No God
No Peace

Sorry to hear this Kevin. Thoughts and prayers for strength and healing are with your mom, you, and your family. Your mom sounds like quite a woman - the amazing spirit you indicate in your post will help her through this (and probably help you, too). Hopefully she is not suffering unbearable pain with her injuries.
