Up in the wee hours as usual: have to take mom in for surgery this morning.

They ended up putting in an artificial shoulder joint: she had shattered the bone that badly. The real problem is her continuing to live on her own at 85. She has fallen several times in the last few months, and has always given me " reasons" why. As her POA, I have real concerns about her being by herself.
This is such a difficult place to be. I'm so sorry, Tom. She is very fortunate to have a lovely son like you to watch over her. I always tell my son that right now it's my turn to protect and take care of him and one day when I'm older it will be his turn to protect and watch over me.
