My mom is in the hospital

Last thursday morning, 3 AM she got up and probably was going to get a drink of water, but fainted and fell, hiting her had. Fractured her temparal (sp?) bone. She is a little bit better now, but I don't thik she is all together there. One moment she talks to nurse about her grandchildren and the next she is screaming, pooling IV out, pushing nurse away.

Oh, Charlie!

I hope she gets better very soon. My mom has fallen a couple times and, though she didn't hit her head, she has broken stuff and took awhile to mend.

I hope she feels better and best wishes to your family.

Charlie I know all about watching a parent struggle health-wise. I am sending thoughts and prayers to you, your Mom and your family. I know that even in the state she is in, she can feel the love of her family and even the nurses who care for her. Just be there for her in any way you can.

It's so hard when our parents are not well. Keeping you and yours in my thoughts, and wishing a speedy recovery for your mother.
