Thanks everyone for their kind words about my Grandfather's fall. It's been a hard few weeks but I've been really glad I could be here to lend a hand so that it all didn't fall on my Grandmother.
For those that missed my note last week. My Grandfather fell on November 19 and fractured his 6th and 7th vertebrae which in short hand means he broke his neck. He's 92 but otherwise in excellent health though he's not getting around quite as well as he used to which frustrates him at times.
He's been improving steadily since the injury other than some pain from the injury and some aches from having to be so immobile for an extended period of time. I was planning to head home this past Friday but then Wednesday happened. What started out as a great day with him in good spirits quickly went sideways and we ended up in the emergency room with him almost unresponsive. He had low blood pressure and a touch of pnemonia and had to be hospitalized for several days but thankfully both issues reacted quickly to treatment and he's been in good spirits ever since and is getting stronger every day.
I'm hoping to head home Monday or Tuesday and am looking forward to catching up with everyone and seeing what you're all reading. I'm sure there's some great Christmas books I'm missing!
