My 82 yo aunt fell on Sunday and broke her hip and fractured her wrist. She banged up her knee pretty bad too. Its Tuesday and she hasn't had surgery yet.

My dad broke his hip about 3 years ago, at the age of 85, and he's healed up quite well, so I hope your aunt does well also. It's a slow process though. She'll be in a rehab center for a while.
