So my husband, Louis, had a fall today and went to the hospital in an ambulance. His pelvis is broken but not near the hip socket, so, instead of pinning it, they are “just going to let it heal”.
I wonder if, because of his age, he has been put on one of those death lists I have been hearing about. I am not an orthopedist, but I have to wonder how quickly weight-bearing bones heal in a slightly over weight man of his somewhat advanced age. What is a little lingering intense pain when you have out-lived your “usefulness”?
I won’t sarcastically thank the voters of America until I have more information. I’m good that way.
