I am happy to report that I was able to take Mom home from the hospital after the internal bleeding stopped and none of the tests could find a cause for it. After doing a pelvic cat scan to check the kidneys and colon, her bones looked so bad that the doctors were concerned that she had bone cancer, but further checking found no cancer, just severe Osteoporosis. She now takes a medicine for that that is sprayed into her nostrils and we have to get her a foam egg crate mattress and chair pads to protect her fragile bones.
Mom with her sisters, Rachel and Emmy in around 1937. Look at
those jodphers and boots, just like Hollywood!
She was able to go on an outing to the Florence Senior Center dance with staff and residents of her home, where she enjoyed the live music and even made a sweep of half the dance floor before her legs wore out. When younger, she and Dad went dancing every Saturday evening and were quite good at it.
Here are a couple of photos of a younger Mom that I found in my family archives. I wish I had a photo of them dancing.
