When it Comes Rigght Down To It

This was started in February. And I will be updating it soon. Didn't want to delete it...

Pat broke her hip a couple weeks ago, 2 1/2 to be exact. She was sent to a bigger hospital for surgery and within 12 hours of us "checking in" to one hospital, she was coming out of recovery with a new hip,  at the other hospital. By the morning she already had stood up, although we didn't see it, we felt that was amazing.

The next day, the same thing, but nothing else. In a normal situation, without Alzheimer's involved, she would have been walking the next day! They had planned to release her in 2 days.
Ssaturday was rough
Sunday brought
Monday - doing good but eyes are still shut.
Tuesday - we couldn't make it cause of the roads being closed
Wednesday - she was supposed to be released, but when we got there we thought, no way! Sure enough the doctor said they were keeping her. She had pneumonia...

I never updated this until now. I just haven't had the time or composure, I guess, for lack of a better word.
