My mom fell a few weeks ago and like all good moms she suffered in silence. Why do they do that?
It hasn’t gotten better (though she kept telling me it had–a little). Yesterday she went for an MRI scan. She has a cracked vertebrae. Her doctor says she’ll need a procedure called a kyphoplasty. Doctors will inject cement into her broken piece.
Medical science is amazing but there’s no way to make this any easier. You don’t want your mom to hurt.

“Why do they do that?”
Because that’s just the way moms are. I remember when my mom got into a car accident, she didn’t want me to leave work and come to the hospital…yeah…guess what I did anyway.
Hope she is ok Geoff. My parents rolled thier Jeep one winter morning and didn’t tell me until I came home and saw a different color truck in the driveway, 3 months later!
