More excitement

Well, I ended up coming back to my mom's earlier than I had planned. I got a call from my brother about 10 this morning saying that he had found my grandma lying on her floor. He was pretty shaken up because when he first found her it looked like she had passed away. She was taken to the hospital and found out that she had broken her ankle. She also had burns on her skin because she had fallen sometime yesterday and drug herself over in front of her propane heater to keep warm, only she laid too close to it. She's also very badly bruised. A lot of things were tipped over in her house, so I'm guessing that she was trying to stand up but kept falling back down.

Anyway, I've had enough "excitement" for one week.

Oh my gosh. That makes me so sad! I will keep all of your family in my prayers. It is so sad when our grandparents get so old and hurt themselves. Bless your heart!

AACK! I'm so sorry to hear this. She must have been terrified! Feel better soon grandma. How are things with your family these days? Is she able to get a medical alert button to hang around her neck? It's like a necklace but if she falls she'll have it with her to call for help. They usually can be worked into the phone lines somehow.
