Unfortunate Thanksgiving
I had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday, filled with friends, family, and good food. I am thankful to have my life full of such wonderful people.

Unfortunately the holiday ended abruptly by finding out this morning that my grandmother fell last night, breaking her hip and hand. She should be having surgery today, and we'll know more about her status later. Tomorrow probably, or maybe not until monday. *sigh* She is far away, and at least so far her prognosis is good enough that there is currently no reason for me to go back to NJ.... But such an injury at 91 is not one easily recovered from. So we'll see what happens.

Good luck to her. A broken hip put my maternal grandmother in a nursing home, for good. I hope your grandmother does better. I think care, particularly physical therapy, gives her better hope than my grandmother had back in 1973.

Hope she gets well quickly and there are no complications.

oh, that's rough.

*hug*

They're getting better with hips, but you're right, that's hard to recover from. Still, even 20 years ago my great grandmother had years after a fall like that. Hope your grandmother does even better.

Oh no, your poor grandmother! I will be hoping for a speedy recovery for her.

That's unfortunate. Still, she made it to 91, I'm sure she's got plenty of spunk in her to get over this. I hope she pulls through it all OK!

Wow,
That is a shocking thing. I hope she comes through it all okay. I'll be thinking about her and hoping you are well.

Good Luck,
Darc
