UPDATE: 8/26 MIL had surgery yesterday. She came through it fine, but it was a very long surgery. Thanks to all of you for keeping her in your thoughts.
We arrived home today from a week at the ocean, less than an hour later we received a phone call that MIL had fallen and broken her arm. Hubby rushed to the hospital and it turns out she broke her wrist in three places and will have surgery tomorrow to place a plate in her wrist and set the bones. For now, she has been admitted and is being kept well medicated.
More about our trip, and knitting, later.
