My mom, step-dad, and little(st) brother are at the beach this week on vacation. Some waves took my mom down repeatedly, and fractured her femur and a rib. The x-rays also revealed some areas on her ribs with a “moth-eaten” appearance; and possible degenerative disks. Since she’s hours away from home, the doctors at the beach don’t want to continue investigating the rib or spine, but have told her she needs to see an orthopedic surgeon as soon as she gets home and have her rib biopsied.
We’re all hoping it’s osteoporosis, rather than the dreaded “C-word.”
If you can spare some healing thoughts for my mom, I’d appreciate it.
