For those who do not know, on Feb. 21 Sherry had surgery on her left foot to repair damage due to osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. There was bone fusion and bone grafting as well as having screws and staples put in bones. The doctor told her she would not be able to put any weight on the foot for 2-3 months and recommended a device called a knee walker, which is like the scooters we rode as kids, with handlebars, but four wheels instead of two and a seat to rest her knee. She ordered one and it got here before the surgery. She stayed in the hospital overnight and came home the next day. In a few days she was getting around pretty well on the scooter. On Wednesday, Feb. 27, the doctor removed her soft cast, as swelling had gone down, and put on a hard cast. After we got home, she came into the living room and somehow fell off the scooter. She was hurting badly, so an ambulance was called and she was taken to Weatherford Regional Hospital, where she was found to have a broken hip on the left. The afternoon of Feb. 28, surgery was performed and a metal rod and pin were implanted to repair the break. The doctor reported all went well with the surgery and there should be a good, but lengthy recovery, which will be complicated because it is on the same side as her foot surgery. There will be some inpatient rehab involved, but right now the time line is uncertain. Any thoughts and prayers will be greatly appreciated.
