Great news, jean is home, after a lot of pain and curses I got Jean into the car for the ride home. She is now resting comfortably in her own bed. The kids are on the bed comforting Mom with purrs of happiness that she is home. She had a good night’s rest away from the noise of the hospital.
Jean has a Knee walker similar to this, to get out of the hospital she had to show Physio that she could operate it. Well, she took off down the hall and around the corner, the Physio tech was happy, and off to home, we went. What a Knee walker is good for is if you have a problem with your lower leg, foot, you can take the weight off that lower leg. It is great just like riding a two-wheel scooter.
Jean is cheered by all the kind and thoughtful responses from all of her friends near and far. They help to ease the discomfort that she is experiencing.
Shoko says that she is very happy all of her friends are helping to cheer Mom up.
Dad here, some of you have heard that Jean (Mom)is in the hospital, and she still is.
It all started Saturday morning when Jean woke me up with her moaning, I thought it was kind of rude of her to wake me up that way until I went into her room to see her. She had her eyes open but was not responsive at all to me. At this point, I called 911 and got an ambulance underway, when I went to unlock the front door, I heard a thump from the bedroom, when I got to the bedroom, Jean had got out of bed to go to the washroom and fell. More on this later.
The ambulance came and took Jean off to the hospital. When I got to the hospital they said Jean had Pneumonia and they suspected that this was what caused her to be in a reduced level of consciousness, and the also found her pulse rate to high at over 100 beats a minute. Normal is about 80. so they have kept her in the hospital to get her heart rate down. When I saw her this morning her heart rate was for the most part under 100, that is a good sign.
Yesterday they did a CT Scan to see if she may have had a stroke, what they found was that she dislocated her left shoulder and broke her upper arm and some ribs (fortunately these ribs are high on her chest and don’t move much). The Orthopedic surgeon who saw her said that if it heals well she should be fine, if not she will need a shoulder replacement. When the Surgeon asked who did the surgery on her ankle, Jean told him, his response was “I’m better looking!”
This what Ann Adamus of firstname.lastname@example.org sent Jean and we really appreciate her thoughts and talents.
Jean, myself, Shoko, Tyebe & Budd appreciate all the POTP messages and well wishes.
