3. Oh my. I trust and hope she'll be OK (there's no point in hoping

she won't suffer because anyone with broken ribs suffers) but the Left has to be shitting kittens right now.

5. My concern would be pneumonia if she is bedridden for awhile.

It's what got my Nanny when she fell and broke her hips.

6. Absolutely. They don't bind ribs anymore. The constriction causes stale air to build in the lungs

exacerbating the risk of pneumonia.

Go ahead, ask me how I know.

9. no, I won't ask. I figure a loved one..or yourself.

Broken bones at her age are so dangerous.

7. The results of broken bones

can be so dangerous for the elderly. My husband's aunt died last year a day after hip replacement. I never heard an official cause of death, but figure it was due to complications from anesthesia.

8. I work for a nephrology group and when we get consulted, if the pt has a hip fracture,

it's usually the beginning of the end if they are over 75, in my experience.

28. Yup, they say the best way to prevent death if you are elderly is don't fall.

One fall very often is the beginning of the end.

13. Last year my very elderly mother fell and broke her hip and wrist.

She never returned home again. Infection, pneumonia, hospital- induced dementia and more, can happen to the elderly after a fall.

31. That reminded me

of my MIL. She was incredibly active into her early 80's. At 82 she broke her hip during exercise class. Got the replacement done, got through rehab, dead 2 years later from Alzheimer's. Maybe the Alzheimer's would have gotten her despite the surgery, but it just seems connected.

32. I believe it accelerates it and also exposes symptoms that the person has been hiding

by keeping to their routine or getting a spouse to help them when at home.

4. Its getting close....

....... I feel bad for her. Broken ribs are painful and it takes a long time to heal.

She should maneuver with a wheeled walker. This fall resulted in broken ribs. The next time it could be hips or neck.

19. I cant even imagine the pain of a broken rib especially at her age

It has to be especially tough for her to have medical issues given her position and decision to stay in the supreme court throughout the last administration. This certainly isnt the way she envisioned finishing her career.

I hope she recovers and doesnt suffer any pain but I hope she retires soon and enjoys herself, family and friends. She seems like a genuinely good person.

21. I wouldn't wish that on any old bat.

Even a old moonbat. I hope she has a speedy recovery, and as Red Nation expressed above, enjoys a nice, long retirement.

30. Very bad news for her.

It's very easy for complications to set in at that age for any injury or illness, however minor. If it's multiple ribs, that's not minor.
