    Prayers welcomed

    Last couple of days have been nuts. I will try to make this short, but it certainly is anything but sweet. A week ago my wife set out to Kentucky to assist her mom preparing to bring her Aunt/Moms sister back to NY. Aunt Jan has some health concerns- dementia etc...to make matters worse she fell last night at about 4am or so. She ended up going to the hospital and has a broken hip...it was suppose to be an easy fix. She went into surgery...came out of surgery, and now my wife gets a text from her mom that Aunt Jan is back in surgery....that is not good at all!!!! Hoping for the best but sadly really concerned about the worst...don't like the words- back into surgery.

    wishing her well.
    prayers to Aunt Jan

    sadly when a person with dementia has anesthesia, sometimes it makes the dementia worse

    I hope her 2nd surgery is successful.
    AIDTM THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind?

    Thanks to all of you! Lots of miss information coming from Kentucky....she appears to be doing okay at this point. Ended up having 1 surgery- my mother in-law did not do a good job of explaining things to my wife. Hopefully my wife will be home tomorrow- time will tell.

    Good luck with all that Jay.... and it's tough communicating information long distance. Hoping for the best!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!
