On Saturday morning Doris slipped in the shower and was badly injured. If you know her, you know that she's very tough and never likes to admit that she's hurt.
She hit her head and ribs very hard. Hard enough that when I learned of the injury, we sought professional help. It was bad. She had a severe contusion to her forehead and rib cage area.
The professionals examined her and did not believe that she had a concussion, gave her ice packs to apply to her forehead and advised that I keep an eye on her and ask her to refrain from strenous activities.
I did my best to do that but it was difficult. Since we've been home, we've consulted with our family medical docotor and I'm trying to keep her from overexerting herself. She's also supposed to keep her cognitavie skills to a minimum.
Doris is the toughest person I know. I've seen her endure some very severe pain and never admit that it hurt at all. She's a stoic.
This could have been much worse that it was but frankly, it's very bad.
Your thoughts and prayers will be appreciated.
