I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! I shared mashed potatoes and peas with my sister which was very good. I’ll cook a turkey at a later date and get a pumpkin pie hopefully next week. Sis fell out of bed and fractured her knee cap and has many skin tears as well. A nurse comes to change bandages and because she is bed ridden, I do the rest which involves administering her medication every 6 hours and her duo neb treatments every 4 hours. I grab naps whenever I can! I won’t know any more until we see the orthopedic doctor on Monday if we can get there. It all depends on someone having a stretcher available that day. I am waiting for their call.
She was out of sorts the week before her fall but since she had improved so much by Monday, at her request I left the bed rail down which turned out to be a big mistake! The Physical Therapist came today and impressed the importance of protein for muscle improvement so hopefully she will allow me to prepare more sensible food for her. Healing time for the knee could be 4 to 6 weeks so Merry Christmas too If I don’t get back on my blog before then. Thanks to all who are still reading the older posts which my stats show there are many of you! Thanks so much and hopefully I’ll be back later!
