My brother called early Wednesday morning and told me he had an ambulance coming for our mom. I threw stuff in the car and headed for the hospital, which is 4 hours from me. With her history of heart problems, we just knew it was her heart once again. Thank goodness, it was not! Turns out her nausea and dizziness was caused from vertigo and after one night in the hospital, I brought her home. Due to committments I had at my home, I rushed back to Texas yesterday. This morning I got a call from my mom. Seems like she fell in the night and was unable to get up for several hours until my dad came to check on her (he sleeps in the other end of the house). He had to call my brother to come pick her up. She is pretty sure she has a cracked rib now. She is such a wonderful woman and Mom that I just hate to see her have to endure so much. There is really nothing that can be done for a cracked rib and it is really quite painful. A pain pill will just make her even less stable. Every moment she is in bed just continues to rob her of her strength so she stays up most of the time in a chair. She is so tired of being weak and tired!!! If it continues much longer, I'm afraid she may give up. I need my MOM!!
