Just wanted to write a quick post asking for all good vibes to be sent to my Gran. She had a very nasty fall on Sunday in her garden. Consequently, she broke her hip in two places and needed an operation Monday to fix it. I visited her on Sunday when it happened and the poor thing was in so much pain and shock. She is also really bruised, you can't tell what's her arm or skin because of all the bruising. She has a very weak heart so they weren't sure if it would survive the operation.
Luckily, when the op happened on Monday she came through but they are having problems stabilising her blood pressure and her previous heart conditions have been exacerbated by the anaesthesia. She's 81 so her old ticker is doing something right! It just seems to be one thing after another. We're hoping to have her home next week but her home is not at all suitable for someone who will need extensive physiotherapy for the next 2 months. So we're worried what will happen next? It's weird she's at the same hospital I work at and even though I'm a nurse and know the ins and outs of whats happened medically. At the end of the day's my flesh and blood and I'm still worried sick :(
My Gran and parents at graduation last July.
Plus, she's gutted she is missing my sister's baby shower this weekend since she was enjoying being apart of all the plans. I really hope she overcomes this as best as she can.
Get well soon Gran!
