Body Language

Mum accidentally kicked her big toe against the leg of a chair. Just one of those accidents when in a hurry and a furry you walked into the table or chair. 10 days later when the swell and the nagging pain did not subside, did she see the doctor. This morning An x-ray was done and mum ended up going home with bandaged on her right big toe. A hairline fracture was seen and a bandage was necessary to restrict it's movement. Take nothing for granted after the age of 70. Be aware of any nagging discomfort, aches and pains. It's the body sending SOS.

Possible osteoporosis, esp with age and our asian diet. She may have to load up on her calcium. Wishing her a speedy recovery.
