When it rains it pours!

So, as if my family didn't have enough going on this summer my mom is now in the hospital! A few days ago she had an accident and broke her hip. She was rushed by ambulance to the hospital and had emergency surgery. They placed three pins in her hip to help repair the damage and they say it should take about 8 weeks of rest for her to recover.
First of all, my mom is the sweetest person in the world and does not deserve to suffer like this! Secondly, She is still grieving and it breaks my heart to think of her being sad sitting in a hospital bed in pain.
For a little while I considered going back to Newfoundland but after some thought I decided that I can't afford to go back, I also have a family here in Calgary that I need to consider and they need me too.
Luckily my sister is home taking care of her so that makes me feel a bit better about the whole situation.
My mom is strong and I know she will get through it I just wish I was there to take care of her especially since she sat by me and held my hand during countless hospital stays.
