Ms. Ruth underwent an extensive surgery to repair 2 holes in her lungs (from broken ribs...) She is doing very well and was released from the hospital Monday. She will have a home health nurse 5 days a week for about 3 weeks; just to help with baths, exercise, etc...to work the soreness out.
Jonathan's grandmother, Jean, has been sent to the nursing home for rehab therapy. At first, we all were under the impression that she had the less severe injuries, but that has not been the case. She in fact had a major head injury, which has caused balance problems. She barely has any use of her legs at all. They sent her to NHC today and she is expected to be there for 2-3 months, depending on her progress. She has already come a long way but has a long way to go.
Thanks for remembering these great ladies in your thoughts and prayers as they continue to progress.
