View Full Version : Breathing deeply

My BIL arrived Wed. It's been nice to have someone to talk to, all the remember whens and all. Somehow, I think it's helped him work through his wife's passing watching over mom and being able to talk about it.

So things were going really well. (Notice I said were.) Since mom's more or less in the bed sleeping most of the day, the guys decided to go to the flea market this morning. I stayed home, because the ground is rough and there are a lot of rude people that just cut in front of you all the time and it frustrates me to go. Somebody had to be here to do the laundry.

DH just called. BIL fell... he fell hard... we're in the ER in Mt Holly. Call me if you need me with your mom... but I think he's broken his shoulder.

Oh, my dear. So sorry to hear this has gone from stressful to much worse. Your poor BIL. You mention the ground is rough at the market, and I can imagine how the fall occurred. Hugs to you all, and hoping there are no fractures.

Oh dear! I hope it's not broken and ER doesn't take up the whole day. :(

As hubby sometimes says, there is nothing so bad it couldn't be worse.

Thank goodness, just a bad sprain. They gave him the name of an orthopedic dr. if it doesn't feel better in 4-5 days.

Get to the ortho and get referral for physical therapy. I hurt my shoulder last year and ER put it in a sling. Went to ortho the same week and they said if I had left it in sling that it would have frozen up and been worse. It takes awhile to recover from shoulder problems. The physical therapy helped more than anything else. I wish your BIL healing wishes.
