Fall in the family (must be the latest trend) :(

Original posted Friday, April 17, 2009, 9:39 AM. I'm keeping this on top until Monday, at least.

My mother, who's over eighty, took a tumble yesterday and broke her hip. Surgery is expected to take place within the next few days. Please keep Esther bat Golda v'Chaim in your thoughts and prayers.

Early Sunday update: My mother is awaiting surgery today, and is resting comfortably--mostly sleeping--in the interim.

Sunday, 6:17 PM update: My mother is now safely out of surgery, is alert, and will be going home (where she'll undergo rehabilitation) in a few days. She'll need 24-hour care for the foreseeable future.

The current theory is that my mother fell due to dizziness caused by low hemoglobin.
