The last few days have been difficult. On last Wednesday, my Mom could no longer get up out of her chair and was in severe pain in her back. She was admitted to the hospital and we found she had torn ligaments in her back. On Sunday she had emergency surgery. She is 88 years old and this was quite an undertaking. She came through the operation after 5 l/2 hours. Yesterday she got the tubes out and is doing very well considering all she has been through. Today they plan to get her up for the first time. She has had to lie completely flat for 2 days. I will be anxious to see how she does when PT comes to get her up.
