update on mom's fall

  1. Hi all, Just wanted to say thanks to all who prayed for my mom. The surgery on her knee went well. She has been put in turtle shell for her fractured lumbar and a sling for the fractured shoulder. All that along with the leg brace I think is driving her nuts. She is settled into the rehab center. She is very depressed and not talking. I am having a really hard time with this. She has always battled depression but it is way beyond that now. I visit her every day that I have off but I dont stay long because she does not talk at all. She also gets very annoyed with my teenage son. He is MRDD and she cant understand that even though he is big he still thinks he is little. Anyway I end up feeling very guilty and helpless. Oh well that is neither here nor there but thanks for the prayers and for letting me vent.

    Glad to hear she's physically on the mend. Sorry to hear about the other stuff.

    Being childless, what does MRDD stand for? Thanks.
