I have been moved to North ridge Masonic Home for rehab. A few weeks ago, my leg broke and I fell down a flight of stairs. Today is my first day back on the computer for a few minutes. I hit my head on the way down the stairs and have drastic changes in vision.

I spent about 2 weeks in North Memorial Trauma center. My blood sugars were crashed a number of times. Toward the end of the second week they started therapy. I have had diarrhea for almost two weeks. No idea why.

Left Femur was fractured. I have a rod from my knee to my hip. No energy or hunger yet. Where I am now I get OT once per day and Pt twice per day. Since I have no continence of bladder or bowel I wear a diaper that has to be changed a lot.

I think that if my PCP had done the test that I asked for several months ago, I may have side stepped this bump.   I am non-weight bearing for another 3 weeks. I can not go home until I am weight bearing.

I do not know when I will write again.

OMG JOE!

What a nightmare.

One that starts out terrible and goes downhill fast.

I hope things are looking like a road to recovery SOON.

The bowel and bladder thing sound like some nerve damage to your spine as well, sir.

But then I'm no doctor.

You are such a dignified man, this has to be very challenging for you, all around.

I gather that your leg actually broke and that's why you fell?

I know that often happens to hips, the hip fractures and then the fall occurs.

I didn't know about spontaneous breaks in the femur as well.

I hope they are controlling your pain as well as possible.

We are ALL SO GLAD to hear from you!   Even with such a terrible series of events.

PLEASE keep us posted.

Hoping there are very good tones for you.

Hugs
