Okay, so now besides the separation I just got a call from my mother's nursing home. She fractured her leg (probably when she was turned in her bed, because she can no longer walk) - and she has severe osteoporosis. So they gave her some pain meds tonight and tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. they will send her to the E.R. for treatment.
They can't operate on her, there's no point in putting a pin in her leg because the bone would shatter, that's how bad the osteoporosis is. They will probably put a splint on, but they have to bring this poor 95 year-old woman to an E.R. to treat her leg. It seems crazy to me that they can't do this at her nursing home, but they can't.
I have to remember to breathe.
