Another Bad Fall
Mom fell again on Saturday. As usual, she was trying to get around without the hated walker, and the inevitable happened. Her wrist is hideously swollen and her tiny arm is black and blue to the elbow. The pain must be excrutiating. When the hospice nurse asked her to rate the pain on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the worst pain imaginable, she said "9" without hesitation. She's now on morphine.
