Just a quick update. Mom's hip hasn't gotten better. All my free time (and a good part of the time I should be working) is spent helping her. Today we went to see her Doctor again. The doctor said her hip should have healed by now and has scheduled a bunch of tests at the hospital tomorrow to figure out what's wrong with her hip (or spine - the doc. says it could be either a hairline fracture that didn't show up on last week's x-ray, or a pinched nerve in the spine that's making her think her hip hurts when it's actually something in her lower back instead).
Dad's pretty much useless in all this too. Sometimes being an only child sucks as I'm the only one there to help my folks and I'm feeling swamped.
