>>
>> Anne fell off her mtn bike monday afternoon and fractured her hip.  it was a very low speed crash, but her feet were locked into the pedals and her hip took the full force of the impact.  i was not around, but enza got her to urgent care right away, where they verified she fractured the femoral head, the ball of the hip joint.  so off to stanford ER for orthopedic surgery.  she went into surgery monday night, where they repaired the damage with 3 screws.  after a couple recovery days in the hospital, she is back at home, resting and healing.

>> she uses a walker and crutches right now; no weight on the left leg for 3 weeks.  after a post-op checkup, then physical therapy is expected to start.  partial walking should be ok in 6 weeks.  full recovery is usually 6-12 months.
>>
>> she’s checking email, so you can send her notes anytime.  but remember she’s on pain pills now, so some of her responses might seem strange.
>> she can have visitors, but please bring your own food.  otherwise anne will feel compelled to stand up and start cooking something……  and that’s months away.
>>
>> mucho thanks to enza for outstanding service in the line of fire and getting her to urgent care quickly.  and thanks to rita for helping get anne settled into the house when she left the hospital.
