It's Getting Better. I Promise!

~~My mother-in-law, Helen, had hip replacement surgery on Tuesday. It's been a long time since she fell in August, but finally we are moving in the right direction. The first problem was the fall, followed by the screws that were to hold the fracture in place didn't, and finally a new fracture appeared. It's a new fracture or one that wasn't found to begin with. We'll never really know.
~~What we do know is that the new doctor from Emory Orthopedics has replaced the bone that was inflamed around the screws and the fractured ball that was also inflamed. She stood up for the first time in over two months the day after surgery. It's a relief. She can now get better and have a life that is easier on her and her sons.
~~Keep us in your prayers.
