My mother-in-law broke her hip this morning. I spent all day at the hospital. I packed a huge bag of stuff to entertain the toddler, and it worked. It's the MIL who needed something to do. She carved a habit at home day in and day out so whenher schedule is changed, she feels out of whack. Not being able to get up certainly made it uncomfortable. The weekend accident is untimely too as most people in the hospital work Monday through Friday too. She's a frail and onery 83 year old who needs lots of attention. I hope she hads her surgery in a couple days and in a week or so, is back to *normal.* I'm SO tired today after getting up and down all day chasing the toddler, chasing nurses, and feeding MIL (who is in a lot of pain.) Hope tomorrow is better!!!

Oh, that sucks. My grandma broke her hips once and it required a lot of physical therapy. I had to change her shoes and socks for her for a long time.
