Keep my mom in your thoughts?


I don't usually do this, but it's weighing on me and I thought sharing might help. My mother (aka superwoman) had hip replacement surgery two weeks ago, and was recovering slowly. On the evening of my friends' wedding, she was in such excruciating pain that we took her to the emergency room around midnight where they discovered a crack in the bone that the prosthetic hip was attached to, and that the bone had shifted. She had emergency surgery Monday evening and they wired the bone together. She is now in the hospital. She'll most likely end up spending some time in a rehabilitation facility before she can come home, which I know will be hard for her. 


So if you remember to, please keep her in your thoughts/ prayers/ meditations/ whatever else you do! We're hoping for a smooth recovery, and that there are no more cracked/ broken bones. She had such high hopes about finally being able to walk upright and pain free (it's been years) after the hip replacement, and I'm hoping she'll get there by the end of the summer!


This is extra difficult for me because I live 300+ miles away, so my sisters (both younger than me) have been taking charge of keeping the house together. Keep them in your thoughts too- they're doing an awesome job!

Thank you, friends!

praying for you! my mom was born with dislocated hips and has had several hip replacement and revision surgeries over her lifetime (and mine). it's a super tough recovery, especially at an older age, but perseverance and hard work will get her through. make sure she sticks to her PT! she'll be back to her old self in some time, i'm sure.

Thank you, ladies!

Sofia- I will DEFINITELY stay on her about her PT... She's a bit rebellious and sassy in her old age, but I KNOW she wants to be able to walk. I hope your mom is doing alright now!
