My Mother

Please remember my mother in your thoughts and prayers. She fell yesterday and injured herself fairly badly. She is now in the hospital under observation.


MA UPDATE:

My brother says that she is supposed to be moved out of ICU today (Saturday).
She had a dizzy spell and fell on a hard tile floor. She had 12 stitches worth of a head wound with a small hairline skull fracture. They kept her in the ICU overnight to check for internal bleeding in her head. Apparently, there is none.
She will be hospitalized for awhile, and then in rehabilitation after that. She is lucid and conscious, my brother tells me.

She's a tough old broad. She can make a Marine drill sergeant cry. If anyone could pull through this, she could.

Prayers for your mom and you. I know how badly bruised and shaken up my mom has gotten from falls. It takes awhile to assess the damage and it can be quite painful for awhile. Hope it is not too bad.

A prayer will be said for your Mom tonight by this stranger in Texas. I've just discovered your amazing blog after doing a Google search for David Wojnarowicz (just finished reading Close to the Knives for the first time). So, one inspiration leads to another. Best wishes.
