Update -- Guess it's good I wasn't there :)

First, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the all the thoughts and prayers! No one can tell me the power of positive thoughts and prayers do not help when a person asks for them!! THANK YOU ALL!!!!

I am 110% sure that they are why my Grandmother is still able to be at home WITHOUT, yes I said WITHOUT another broken hip -- thankfully!! We were all so sure that was what happened when she fell this time as well -- and that when she got up in the morning they would have to call the ambulance for her -- but being the trooper that she is -- she got herself right out of that bed (well, with help, of course, she IS still recovering from her right hip being broken and she is not a spring chicken!) -- she is bruised and sore -- but thankfully nothing is broken :)

If I was there, that poor woman would have been in the hospital again -- and for nothing too! And she feels the same way that I do about them, she HATES THEM! So, it's good that I am not able to leave the house in this instance I guess -- because if I could I would surely be there with her and giving my Mother a break.

More later about the generosity of Knitters from around the world. I didn't expect this post to get this long, and the post that I want to post deserves it's own space too :)

Happy Holidays to all!

Prayers, good thoughts...ANYTHING....

If you're they praying type, can you please say a few for myself and my family. My Grandmother (who fell and broke her hip 6 weeks ago) had another fall tonight and I am a complete basket case -- she _just_ was released from the hospital three days ago, and now this.

And of course, being the stubborn, proud (stupid) woman that she is -- is refusing to allow my mother to call 911 for her (if I were there -- I would have just done it -- she is 92 years old and I am sure she's in shock, and another fall is NOTHING to fool around with!! She didn't want them to call the paramedics the first time either -- and if they didn't, she would have likely bled to death!) and says she is just fine -- HOWEVER, I am not so sure....So as I am stuck here not even able to go and be with her, I need all the prayers and good thoughts I can get,'s going to be a very, very long night.....and I am pretty sure I won't get much sleep :( if any at all....shit! Just when I thought things were going to start to settle down a bit on that front....
