Thank Goodness For My Mom's Hard Head and a Great Sister

My mom took a fall, hit her dome, got some stitches, was about to be released from the ER when they realized she also had a subdural hematoma. In other words she has a blood vessel leaking in her brain and blood is or was building up between the brain and skull. It supposedly is only a slight one and they expect it will stop bleeding by tomorrow (otherwise they may have to operate). My sister spent most of the wee hours of the morning taking care of things with the ER, then went to work, then was back at the hospital after my mom got admitted. I went there too but only got there at 8PM because even though I left work early, I had to wait my wife to get home with our car before I could drive to the hospital. Mom seems to be doing better than I would have expected, probably a little bit due to a very hard head and a lot due to a good daughter, my sister.

Thanks sister dear!

All the best,
