My daughter in Florida is having a biospy and wants her mommy with her and my daughter in NY fell down the stairs and requires surgery on her leg and wants her mommy with her.
Here is the diagram of the two bones involved. Ingore where it says 'fracture.' That is nothing like hers.
Here is a photo of her actual x-ray
As you can see in the photo, she completely displaced her tibia and the fibular is splintered.
The doctors at the hospital look at the rays and say "this is bad." Isn't that cheery?
Recently Vickie posted how she could not imagine not being with a child who is about to undergo surgery. I agree completely.
But what do you do when you have two children, 1200 miles apart and both need you at the same time? And you own your own business and the livelihood of others is dependent on you working? It is a horrible nightmare.
Just after Florida Daughter's procedure is done I will be at the airport getting on the plane to New York daughter. It is going to be a long recovery processed. She is very independent but lives in a three story walk up and takes multiple subways with stairs, ice, snow . . . do you see how that is not going to work with this injury?
I do not know when I will post next but will update when I am able.
