So let's see if I can update my Mom's situation!! When we first moved back she was in Orange City Nursing and Rehab, where they sent her for rehab for her broken femur! They didn't do a great job, the brace dung a hole in her leg and she wound up going to see a wound specialist, but she, after 3 and 1/2 years, going on 4 this may/june, still has the wound. Which doesn't seem to be healing. Just before Christmas, 2017, she fell and hurt herself pretty back. We happen to be at her house earlier that day, a sunday, raking and mowing her grass, etc. Later that day she fell and when her nurse came to work on her wound, he found her laying on the ground. Estimation is that she laid there for about 15 hours. He called 911 and got a ambulance to come and take her to the ER at Fish Memorial in Orange City. He tried calling us, but my cell was off, because we were at a meeting at Timbercrest Elementary for my oldest Grandson, checking on his progress and what the people working with him are doing. So I didn't get the message until we got home and I turned my cellphone back on. One of the things that happen at her fall was that her left lung filled up with fluid, she didn't want to get it drained. Anyway when she got out of the hospital, she came to live with us. She really can't be by herself anymore! As I mentioned before, the house we lived in was a 4 bedroom, but the owner decided to sell, so we had to move and stay in the same district so the kids, especially my older grandson, could stay in the same school and was already helping and working with his Autism!! But God got us into a 5 bedroom, which to me, obviously, looking back it makes sense because God knew we would be needing a bigger place so that my Mom could live with us. Since than she was been back to get her lung drained!! Yesterday her nurse came over to change the dressing and found that her other leg is now giving her problems so he called her doctor who said we should take her in to the ER and get it evaluated. They kept her and are giving her antibiotics for the infection!! Not sure when she'll get to come home. Also the fluid is building up in the lung again!! There not sure if they'll drain it yet. So keep praying for her, Thanks to all!!

thats a big job you have going on there, but your Mom will have less pain and easier breathing with the lung drained. It sounds like she needs to see a surgeon specialist for that wound. There are surgical procedures they can do for such things, although not having seen your Moms chart, i cannot say for sure. Will be praying that healing takes place for that, and strength and wisdom for you.
