Day 384- Grandma is in the hospital

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update. Grandma fell and broke her hip and had to have surgery. She is 93 and pulled through the surgery with flying colors. Her Dementia complicates the situation because she doesn't understand that she can't walk. She's just very confused in general. The doctor said she might be able to go home tomorrow so that's encouraging. I just hope she isn't in too much pain.

My eating hasn't been the best because hospital food isnt the healthiest but my focus is Grandma right now.

Any and all thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

    Taking care of grandma is more important right now, so don't beat yourself up about the food. Take care and warm fuzzy thoughts your way.

    So sorry to hear about your grandma. Mine had dementia as well. It's a very tough disease to deal with. I pray for her quick healing.

    Loving thoughts going your way -- so hard to see our aging loved ones in pain and confused. Been there, done that -- so best wishes to you. Just show her your love -- it is all that is really important.

    emoticon It is always tough to deal with elderly grandparents when they start to really age and get confused. I have one grandma who is there now and it hurts to see her so different from what she used to be.

    Sorry to hear about your Grandma. My 90 year old Grandma fell on Thanksgiving and broke her arm up by her shoulder. They didn't do surgery or put her in a cast because of the location. She's been slowly recovering in a nursing home (she normally lives in assisted living) and she also has dementia, which makes it difficult. What I'm saying is I understand and will pray for your Grandma.
