    Mom-in-law does not want to go to hospital.! Her wrist is swollen and turning color. Feeling it , it does not appear to be broken , but a bad sprain.! Ooouch!

    She's fighting me tooth and nail , cursing like a drunken Sailor..! :D

    I don't drink , but I might have to get a pint of 101 "Wild Turkey" to persuade Mom to git..!:)

    Funny , I don't recall saying (I DO) twicet..! :confused:

    Soak the hand in COLD water.
    Might help.
    Get her to a doctor.

    She's 89 and doing blood thinners and "Heparin" injections , which is the only pleasure I get (POKE HER) ! Clots are not an issue plus I'm certified in many emergency situations , CPR , etc. etc. !

    BAD Attitude is thee problem..! :D I'm never going to make it back to my camp tonight , it would be dark before I got there and I ain't skiing in the black of night ! :(

    Also, mental check. Does she always curse like a sailor? You can always call 911 and have them check her out.

    Thanks for all the great advice , but you got to understand where we live.!
    We are the 911 around these parts! If I feel the need , I WILL BREAK OUT THE DUCT TAPE and carry her to my truck.

    Cursing like a sailor all the time ? .....Yeah , she hates us but it ain't us , it's in her poor mind.!
    Denial , major..! She can't take care of herself and lost her independence..!

    Hates everything...! I'm OK with this and do understand fully.
    I'd just rather be skiing is all , all is well and she sleeping right now ! :)

    Thank YOU again..! :)

    See if there's an "urgent care facility" instead of bringing her to the hospital. She'll be seen and told by a physician if she needs to go to the hospital. Better her hearing it from them than you maybe?

    Kinda live nowhere ! And , nowhere from nowhere just is , which is far and that would make me 911 and that is half or more than faster response time !

    PS: 9 1 1 = 11 ? :) Damn , I'm good ...!

    Theory : 9+1+1=11.?

    Hypothetically; ( 9, possibly + 1, might could be,+ 1 sort of = 11 , perhaps ?

    Ye Ole "Occums' Razor: 9 to the ~PIE (is)(entia non sunt multicanda prater necessitatem , 1 A , given , 1 , thusly -------(11) ..!:confused: 11 Yeap ! <-- Most probably !:cool:
