Mom apparently fell. She doesn't remember falling, but after being okay last Friday, by Saturday she was disoriented and complained of neck pain, and her usually neat apartment was a mess. Monday (!) a cousin took her to the ER, and she has two broken bones in her neck. They tried a halo brace, but that increased her anxiety and blood pressure, they had to remove it. She's now back in her apt, with a 24/7 companion and a stiff neck brace. They will do another MRI in 3 weeks.
Why no family who saw her stepped in before Monday is not clear. Why the staff, who help her with her meds daily, didn't notice there was a problem is not clear.
I'm not happy, but have no money to go back and work on things. She can't handle the stairs living here, even if she and I could survive living in the same place. Which we can't.
