Health Update

Things are not getting any better since I last emailed you. Summary --- Drs are still trying to find out exactly what my problems are. To add to this I fractured my left hip on Nov 15 --1/2 inch from one of my hip replacement hips - BAD news - I spent some time in the hospital, followed by 3 weeks in rehab.

The decision was then made to move to a single floor appt. We found a very small 2 bedroom [we're on the list to get a bigger one] in Hopkins. It all happened so fast that we haven.even had a chance to contact a realtor!! After I can get around we'll straighten out the house and apt and sell. Sorry I couldn't make the luncheon. My address is 1101 Feltl CT apt 903, Hopkins MN 55343, PH 763-270-5529.

Regards,

Bob Jackson

Health Update

My shattered femur took a turn for the worse,resulting in the most intolerable pain I have ever encountered [and I have encountered some wicked pain in my young career]. I can't put ANY weight on my left leg, and if I SIT OR LAY FOR AS LITTLE AS 5 MIN the pain to stand is excruciating, enuf to upset my stomach and cause my eyes to water profusly. I've seen 3 doctors, and no one can figure out how to reduce the pain. I have been taking super strong opiods [which I am fighting to avoid].

One way I found to relax is to play the piano in our chapel ----the local nun likes it!.Believe it or not I have had people say it helps them pray....[Sometimes I play before daily Mass] How about that!!!

The broken neck,-ribs-hip-knee-nose [twice]-facial bones-concussion with short term memory loss-teeth displacment-etc are all healing far exceeding Dr's expectations, so I guess I'm lucky,right? Especially when the head of HCMC traumatic brain injury unit said I could have/should have died from breaking C-1 and C-2 neck vertebrae.In summary, drs are working on my problems and I hope for the best.

Health Update

Bob fell down in a supermarket parking lot as he was trying to help some one. The weather was bad, ice or snow or rain. He twisted, fell and damaged a lot of himself. I think this was in Dec or Jan. This was a second fall while he was still recovering from an earlier one, the details of which I have forgotten.

My impression is that he may have had accidents earlier still, but cannot pull up specific memories.

Anyway, this week's message from him seems a mixture of admirable stoicism and pleasure in the healing performance of his DNA. The quiet desperation that must be there does not show much. Makes me wonder why I have yet to fall on my kiester, and endure the unendurable. Think I'd better adapt to being a sissy and holding on to railings, accepting arms when offered etc.
