Monmouth County Freeholder Lillian G. Burry is resting comfortably at home after being released from Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank where she spent most of last week after sustaining injuries resulting from a fall outside of her Colts Neck Realty office.
During a phone interview this morning, Burry told MMM that she sustained a mild concussion, injured her left knee and crushed her right elbow. Her elbow joint was replaced.
“There’s still a lot of life in this old broad,” Burry said, “that’s it. When I do something, I really do it.”
Burry’s knee is being treated with an ice pack. Her right arm is in a cast that feels like it weighs 50 lbs., she said.
On a post on her facebook page last night, Burry thanked the first responders from the Colts Neck Police Department and the Colts Neck First Aid Squad for their compassion and professionalism in caring for her last Tuesday after her fall. Burry said that the staff, doctors and nurses at Riverview were terrific, “I am grateful for their wonderful care.”
Burry hopes to get the cast off of her arm later this week and begin a regimen of physical therapy.
