My Mother and Oma

Oma fell three weeks ago today and broke her back, shoulder, and arm. This week she had some internal bleeding. Yesterday she walked to the kitchen on her own. The first time she’s walked more than four steps in the three weeks. I hope she will continue to improve.

My mother is in the hospital again. She has been in the hospital for a week and was in the hospital four days before that, too. (She was out of the hospital for about 16 hours.) Her leg is no longer oozing, which is good. But she is in a lot of pain. She had an allergic reaction to the epinephrin they gave her to stop an allergic reaction (bad event that) and they still haven’t determined a diagnosis.

Polimyalgia rheumatica has been thrown around some.
