While driving in SG (Grab) my wife called me to inform me that my mom had slipped in the bathroom & might have broke her hand. I immediately rushed back (Jam) & rushed her to Regency Specialist Hospital located around Pasir Gudang area in the East.
The registration was swift & we saw the doc within 30mins. The Xray confirmed that my mom had fractured her wrist when she tried to break her fall. She was given 2 choices (minor surgery) or cast. Doc says both are ok but surgery will expadite the recovery process & the bone will heal better (more straight). However my mom insist no surgery thus we opted for cast.
Poor mom gonna be out of action for 2months. She say she eat till 65yrs old first time broke her hand. She regretted not wearing her anti-slip slippers when she went to the toilet earlier (reminded her many times). Normally she would have worn it. Haiz… accidents…
Gonna look for a contractor to replace the bathroom tiles soon (to anti-slip ones). Should have done it earlier. Heart-pain see my mom suffering in pain & agony. 😭. Falling down in old age can be very dangerous. Better be safe than sorry. 🙏🏻
