Prayers for Mother, Please!
Me ^ | Today | Me

Posted on 01/23/2012 6:29:15 PM PST by kimmie7

Hi everyone. My 78 year old mother fell this past week, severely breaking her hip at the femural head (where the abductor muscles attach) and her shoulder in two places. They did surgery (rod and pins) for the hip, but are slinging and swathing the arm/shoulder. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Prayers for your mother! When she mends, please make sure she gets therapy for her shoulder and legs. It’s sooo important. I know; I went through this with my mom.

Take care and take time for yourself.

Prayers for your Mom.

So who is going to be her caregiver? You? If so then you need prayer and the knowledge not to overdo it and ask for some help from those around you such as other family and friends.

Also if there wasn’t an obvious reason for her fall, please have her assessed for a mini stroke. A few years back there was a study done on the connection between pts coming into ER with broken hips as the result of a stroke. There was a strong correlation between individuals that fall as they are experiencing a stroke and break a hip. The ER staff get so focused on the obvious injury that they miss the cause.

I lost my mother on November 18th. It has been very difficult
for me. She was 88 years old, and her heart finally gave out.
I pray that your mother makes a full recovery, and you can enjoy her company and love for years to come, FRiend.

Prayers up.
I’m not in the medical profession but from observing 2 elderly relatives with similar injuries it appeared that a major risk to their health came from spending too much time being bedridden and losing muscle mass. Please inquire about physical therapy options early and often.

I will hold your mother up to our merciful and healing Father. I am teary right now reading this as at 70 I took a hard fall and broke my femur and hip. Please everyone, pray against her pain now and through the rehab unless the Lord does a miracle of instant healing. It’s Very, very important for her to have healthcare workers that are kind and gentle with her and for family and friends who will support and care for her emotionally and physically for a long time as it is going to be hard. I am so glad all these FReepers will pray for her. That is powerful. I will keep you and your mother on my daily prayer reminder for a long time. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we ask or dream. Please let us know how she is doing.

May the Lord send an extraordinary amount of encouragement to your beloved mother, kimmie, as well as an overwhelming portion of laughter and good cheer to help her through this time of temporary setback.

Proverbs 17:22 ~ King James 2000 Bible

A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.

Joining your FReeper family in prayer that the Lord's healing hand would mightily be upon your mom. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, may it be so, Amen ...

Your mom and you have my prayers. At the same age, my mother in law fell and broker her hip, etc. I can’t remember details now, but it was a bit of a haul through surgery and rehab, but eventually she did walk normally again, even without a cane. It is amazing what PT can do these days.

Her name is Faye.

By the way, she was moved to a “rehab” facility that turned out to be a nursing home the day after I left. The more I read about this place the worse I feel about it. I’ll be going up again Thursday to check it out. I think I may have to pitch a royal hissy fit. They don’t have phones in the rooms or even a potty chair for bedside!

You have got to be kidding me, no bedside comode? What do they think she is suppose to do fly to the bathroom? A hissy fit would not even begin to describe my reaction if that were my mother.

Check the MD orders for one. If there isn’t an order, ask why there hasn’t been one written, then get one. If there is one, there better be some splain’ why there isn’t a commode there. When an MD writes orders, a nurse has to sign off on them reflecting that those tasks were achieved. The only way around this is if they show that they ordered one. But in the meantime they should be finding her a temp one.

Also, you have the right to have copies of her patient’s bill of rights, as well as a copy of their policies and procedures. How does the staff treat the clients? Ask to pay for a meal so that you can sample the same food your Mom is eating? Is there a calendar with daily if not numerous events per day? Meet with the activity’s director. What kind of activities can she bring to your Mom to provide social interaction until your Mom is mobile.

Get her a cell phone and charger. Plug it into the outlet by her bed. Then she will have a bedside phone. If you have an old one that is big and bulky, and doesn’t do text messaging, the staff will not be interested in stealing it. Sorry to say this, but it is the truth.

Continued prayers.
