Sorry about the recent absence...

Thanks to those who have been praying for my grandmother. For those who may not know, my uncle found her on 3/11 in the floor incoherent from being off her oxygen for some time, four hours max since he'd left. She was in the hospital for a week, on a ventilator for four days. She came off that and did well and a couple days later was released to a rehab center near home, that was last Friday.

Lindsey and I traveled to see her on Monday. On Tuesday the physical therapist discussed concerns about Grandma's acute pain in one leg during her therapy. We were able to visit with her quite a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, before we returned home Wednesday afternoon. Grandma was x-rayed on Thursday and they discovered that she has a fracture in her pelvic bone. Thankfully it won't require surgery. She'll continue on at rehab, just at a reduced pace. She's maintained her sense of humor, keeping everyone in stitches at the rehab center. Thanks again for the prayers for her and our family.

Update: So far no real news. However, they decided to send Grandma to the hospital for more x-rays and to see the doctor who did her hip surgery. They were there from after lunch some time to after 8:30 tonight. Don't know any more than I did before that. Just hope they saw the doctor.
