My mother fell badly in the shower and is having surgery tomorrow to repair a broken leg and a broken ankle; the other leg, also broken, will get better with only a cast. She's 84, Dad is 89, and they don't want us to come and help. Grrrrrr. So we're going to take turns, but the big thing is the surgery tomorrow. She's going to be in the hospital for a couple of weeks, and then a rehab home for a couple of months.
They say that there's no sign of heart attack or stroke or anything other than a simple fainting spell, so things are much better than the intitial report from a neighbor seemed.
