My mother has a concussion, no broken bones, stitches in her arm, and lots of other scrapes, cuts, and bruises. She is still in a lot of pain.

My stepdad has a broken bone and is getting surgery on it today. We’ve gotten lots of different things from different doctors so were not sure if its femur, hip, pelvic. Hopefully we will know more when he gets out of surgery. Hes in a lot of pain, but thankfully everyone is okay and will recover.”
