Aunt Henrietta – A Triumph
Aunt Henrietta’s 90th birthday party was a triumph. Over 100 friends, neighbors, and relatives attended. She planned and arranged it all herself. This was not the feeble 89 year old of last fall. This was the comeback kid.
6 years ago Henrietta had fallen and broken both wrists and a shoulder in 3 separate incidents. That was before she took Forteo, followed by Prolia. Last year she was sick enough to be falling several times a day. But she did not break anything! Had she broken she would probably not have celebrated her 90th.
Aunt Henrietta waited until age 83 to start taking enough Calcium (Adora Premium Chocolates), enough Vitamin D, and almost enough Protein. Then she waited until she had fractured both wrists and a shoulder before starting osteoporosis medication.
I am not happy that she still falls ocassionally in her 3 level house, but I know that now she doesn’t break anything.
Aunt Henrietta is a triumph.
