April 21, 2014 - Some of you may not be aware that Mother was at my house in Hinton. On April 4th, She was coming from the second floor, missed a step, then tumbled down 13 stairs . She received 3 head cuts including an artery. She had no broken bones, concussion, nor neck or back injuries. She was alert the entire time. We went to Summers County ARH which is within two miles or so from my home. She did loose a great amount of blood but Lab test results she needed no additional. She went with me back to my house to have 48 hours complete bed rest.....I know what you're thinking about this but she was in compliance with this.
She was only sore one day. All stitches and staples are gone....25 t0 30. We came back to Huntington and she was checked by the retina specialist as well as her regular M.D. Thumbs up on everything. We are truly blessed.
I would personally like to thank all of you for your cards, calls, and prayers. I don't know who was blessed more by them, mother or I. She continues to have residual bruises, and occasionally her shoulder goes out of place for a few seconds if she does an activity like putting on a heavy coat or removing an article of clothing without thinking about it. The doctor seems that will heal in time as well. The bruises on her feet and legs are getting better as well.
She is doing so well.....if only she would sit with her feet elevated....but you all know my mom. She has improved so well she is beginning to be selective with her directives for me. Thank the Lord she is coming back. I refer to this as blessed stress.
Don't be surprised is she pops in with Jean Calhoun in the near future.
Thank you all again for the cards, calls, and prayers. God is so good to us.
Fraternal Gratitude, Sis
aka Darlene Bowen......but Sis suits me just fine.

Thank you so much for your prayers, cards and calls since I broke my hip Feb. 28th. I am still "grounded" until I go back to the doctor on April 21st.
