    Yesterday my gramma fell and more or less crushed her hip in the process, then she laid on the floor for three hours before someone found her. :( She had to have emergency surgery, so although what she really needs is a hip replacement, she was bleeding too much and had too much damage inside to just go ahead and replace it. So they just had to repair it the best they could. Vibes that she heals up quickly?

    Too give everyone an idea of what my gramma is like, she was in so much pain today (I rushed back up to PA and went to see her) that she was almost crying and all she was worried about was telling me where my birthday present was. This is what she got me. I almost cried when I saw it, it's a little handbag that she had custom made for me and it's just perfect.

    Thank you so much everyone. I'm extremely thankful that my boss is so awesome. She found out what happened and not only was it not a problem, but she drove two hours so that I would only be an hour away from my boyfriend so he could get me for work. I almost cried, because it was just such a nice to do. I'm glad to be surrounded by good people.

    She had her other hip replaced. When she fell she crushed the one that hadn't been replaced. Her doctor more or less said she's going to end up needing to get this one replaced too because of how damaged it is. There was just too much damage to do it last night.

    My Mother just went through this and a depression rolled in right along with it that took even longer than the hip to heal. All kinds of vibes for your Grandmother from us.

    Really suggest the life alert button. My Mom wears hers and didn't have to wait very long at all when she fell. Every senior that lives alone or even if they don't, should have one.

    Oh no! I'm so sorry. Lots of vibes coming her way that she'll heal up and get the needed surgery. I second the alert button. My Mom wears one too. It could be a real life saver. It is sure nice what your boss did. You are all lucky to be in the midst of a lot of good people.

    Thank you, my gramma and I are very close as she more or less raised me.

    Thank you!

    I suggested a life alert button, but she's resistant to the idea. Hopefully this incident will help her see that it could really help her.

    Thank you, I'm extremely grateful for where I am in life right now.

    Thank you. It is honestly one of the best things I have ever gotten. <3
