Mom's coherent again. She understands she was in the hospital for two days, tho' she doesn't remember being there. She understands she broke her neck in two places.
She has also fired the helper we had staying with her, since now she remembers to wear the neck brace and doesn't feel she needs the help. Even tho' she's unsteady on her feet.
My cousin (whose husband is Mom's lawyer) still hasn't sent me Power of Attny, so I can't override Mom's decision.
