I think I posted that she broke her hip on Sept. 24th. When they did the X-rays they said the ball broke off so instead of doing a pin and all of that, they "only" had to do a half hip replacement so the recovery is much better. Got the tests from the esophageal cancer and it has not spread yet but she is too old (98) and fragile for surgery and chemo. We discussed driving 150 miles each day for 3 weeks to do radiation but the doctor said it would make her quality of life worse and probably extend it only a couple of weeks so we basically decided to do nothing. So far she is asymptomatic except that the ulcer is bleeding so she is becoming a little anemic. She can have blood transfusions as long as we want to do it. She's been in 3 different hospitals and had anesthesia and mega doses of all kinds of other stuff so the dementia is worse. It seems to be worse at night but I think that's normal. She is not happy where she is but I don't think there's any alternative. Three of the nurses at the home are friends of my son so I think she will get a little extra attention. She's had several visitors already and they have activities every day so I'm hoping once she settles in she'll think it's not too bad. I'm in the process of cleaning out her apartment so that is another stress. Her rent is paid through Oct. 31 so we don't have to be in such a big hurry. We could use a few prayers and good thoughts right now. Thanks.
