Oh No!

The physical therapist had just left, Nana's eggs were done and she was pushing her plate across the counter so as not to have to carry it. All of a sudden I hear a tremendous noise and I knew, deep down in my heart, I knew she was falling....I quickly ran upstairs and she was prostrate on the hard kitchen floor. Praise the Lord, she has no broken bones, just bruises. Obviously, she is shaken. She really doesn't know exactly what happened...she was turning, she thinks, and just lost her balance. So far, there doesn't appear to be any bruises on her face. After the last two falls, that is a welcome relief in her mind. We'll see how she looks later this afternoon. She will be sore deep inside for several days.

That must have scared the dickens out of you! I pray she will not be sore for long and no more falling.
Blessings

Oh My! So sorry that Nana took a fall like that. Glad she didnt break anything.

I hope any pain/bruises she has go away quickly.

Hugs Suz

Claire, I look at your blog for the first time this morning, and there's this bad news about Ileen. I'm so sorry to hear this and pray that all will be well. See you this afternoon!

Keep you eyes on the nana of yours. My mom was doing that (falling) on us a year ago, and it turned out that she was being over medicated from high blood pressure meds. I'll be praying for you and her.
