Hey ya'll...........I'll be brief and to the point. I would really appreciate your continued prayers for my mama. We received a call early this a.m. that she had a very bad fall and the paramedics were on their way to take her to the E.R. I rushed over there and the EMT met me before I was taken in to see her and told me that she had a very, very bad laceration on her leg.....he took a pictures of the "hunk" of flesh on the floor of her room and wanted to prepare me before I went in to see her. In a few words....it was the worst wound I've ever seen....gouged to the bone and a hole the size of your palm.....she lost alot of blood. They quickly took her to surgery because the "clock was ticking" on potential infection. Surgery was not successful....unable to close it because of it's depth and her skin too frail to hold stiches.....packed it, loaded her with antibiotics and will began specialized wound care tomorrow. The medical prognosis....6 to 8 weeks for the wound to heal and that's if no complications or infection. Not sure of her ability to walk using that leg after that.
Dr. concerned as to what caused the fall (stroke?)....she's been very disoriented lately but not sure if it was because of the pain med's she's on for the two compression fractures in her spine or something else going on....ran c-scan....showed possible infarction (stroke) or tumor on her brain. Ran MRI tonight...will get results tomorrow and go from there. Today's been a very rough day for her. However, true to her amazing ways, when she was lucid she had a bit of her humor and brought laughter to the nurses and doc's. As I've shared with you before....my mama's joyful outlook on life is amazing....it's a God thing! She's proved Him faithful over and over and over again in her 91 years!
I too would appreciate your prayers. I'm very weary tonight. To be honest with you...when I left the hospital a little while ago I began to feel a bit overwhelmed by what we're facing next. BUT, I know Who hold's my mama's next and He is always faithful to strengthen, comfort and impart wisdom and guidance particularly in season's of the unknown. I'm clinging to His promises, His hand and His faithfulness! He knows what's next!
I also want to say how much I appreciate your sweet comments, prayers and emails! I apologize for very little blog visits lately and look forward to catching up with my bloggy peeps sometime soon and reading what's been stirring in your heart......your ponderings always bless and encourage my heart so! So much going on with my mama's care over the last several months that just about everything else has been set aside. Please know that as the Holy Spirit brings you wonderful bloggy friends to mind, I lift you in prayer. I may not know where you are or exactly what you're growing through, BUT He does and I count it a privilege to stand with you!
Must get to bed now.......Back to the hospital early tomorrow!
Bless you again for your prayers!
