 On Monday, November 9th, past Leisure World resident Trudy Hauserman had a fall in her home.  She hit her head on the tile causing a brain bleed, and rushed to the hospital finding she has a compound fracture on her left foot.  A broken bone that went through the skin bleeding and another broken bone on the other side of the same foot.  
 After a few days in ICU, her right foot was painful also and very bruised.  In checking out that foot, she learned she had another problem - a fracture in the arch - a broken metatarsal bone plus another broken bone.   
But, she is looking on the bright side, as she was told she gets to wear a special "wood" shoe.  This will give her some support to help her put weight on the right foot. 
After spending a few days in ICU, she will be going to a nursing home where she will be having therapy for a minimum of one week.  Trudy always enjoyed Leisure World residents and so many have asked about her.   If you would like to send Trudy a note, she would love to hear from you...
