 Re: Broken femur from fall and lower body cast Need advice
Alisony    8:33am Jul 4 2017

Poor Cami, this sounds awful and I can't imagine how difficult this is going to be both physically and emotionally for her. i think people underestimate the emotional impact of a broken leg. I don't really have much advice to give on the physical side, but emotionally I think it would be a great help to Cami if her friends pay her regular visits and include her in activities as much as possible. From my own experience, people are full of offers to help at the start; however that soon dwindles and loneliness and depression set in. Having a friend visit for only 1 hour is a huge morale booster for me. I actually ended up having to ask my friends to visit, because they wrongly assumed that I was coping fine and no longer needed them. Now I try my best not to go more than a couple of days without company.

I'd also like to mention that it is important she eats well on a healthy balanced diet as this will make her feel better. If there is one thing I look forward to in the morning, it's seeing my glowing skin and sparkling eyes from all the fruit, vegetables and other healthy foods I've being eating together with the hours of rest on the sofa. A small plus-side to the long period of recovery.
