Entropy, Up CLose and Personal
She is 92 and has pretty advanced dementia. Her hip was broken. And they had to do surgery on Monday to put a pin in her hip. Dementia can be temporarily or permanently acerbated by general anesthesia but they were able to do the surgery with a spinal block and a sedative. They've kept her for several days to make sure that she is stable (she came in with an irregular heart beat and she's anemic.) I got her into a rehab nursing home run by the same people who run her assisted living. Cleaned out her old room. She won't be going back to the assisted living--her dementia had reached the point where they were keeping her there even though it might not have been appropriate because they liked her and now she will probably never walk well enough again. She is doing as well as can be expected right now for a 92 year old woman with a hip fracture.
It has been a long week.
