Mother woes, again

Bad news about my mother. She fell yesterday and broke her hip. (Yes, I know at at her age such falls are often due to a hip breaking before the fall but end result is still broken bones and my mother on the floor.) She is undergoing surgery as I write to replace the ball in her hip. While the operation is fairly routine it is risky due to her age and health. She has a DNR order in place and I find myself in great turmoil. I think that her current crisis has tapped into repressed emotions over my father's death last fall.
