My mother broke her femur near her hip joint in four places about a month and a half ago. She is now in a nursing home for rehab (but will remain there when rehab is over.) The problem is that she also has alzheimers...she forgets that she even broke her leg! Because she is somewhat childish, she is not working very hard on her Physical therapy. They are going to stop it soon if she doesn't start trying since it won't do any good. If they stop PT, then (1) Medicare will stop paying for her rehab ($10,000/month) and (2) it is possible she will never walk again because she will lose too much muscle mass. I've gone down there yesterday and today, and she did much better. It takes at least 2 hours out of my day to do this, but I'm going to try if it will mean the difference between her ever walking again or not.
Please pray every morning at 10:30 am (Eastern Time Zone) for my mother to try hard on her physical therapy.
Thank you! I want to tell/show the Physical Therapist that prayer works!
