Fun stuff

Ok, not fun stuff.

First, you may remember that grandma fell on the 13th. She was checked out by paramedics because mom called 911 at the time and we thought she was fine. But she started complaining about pain in the last few days, and when mom took her to the ER today it was discovered that she has a cracked rib.

Good vibes and prayers would be appreciated on grandma's behalf. After spending half the day at the hospital with grandma mom has returned her to the nursing home. There's also been some other drama going on in addition to the cracked rib and it's my understanding that my grandma is not a very happy grandma right now.

So we'll see what happens.

Oh yeah, and it's Tall One's birthday! Mom still hasn't gotten back home from taking care of grandma but she should be back sort of soonish. When she does get back we'll have cake and do presents. But since we haven't actually celebrated his birthday yet I'll leave that post for another.

I hope things improve for your Grandma. My Mom fell and cracked a couple of ribs right before she went in the nursing home too. It's painful and only time will heal them. And living in a nursing home is a huge and depressing change in anyone's life.

I think things will improve for grandma. She's had her ribs checked out, has figured out one is cracked, and her medication dosages have been adjusted to handle other issues that have popped up. So, I think things will improve, at least a little!
