My 91 y.o. grandmother fell last night and broke her femur, there's also a chip of bone they need to find. She's heavily sedated in the hospital now and surgery is the only option, the surgeon will be in tomorrow and let us know what they can do for her. Her biggest fear was falling. She's my strength most of the time, I'm really not ready to let her go yet. She's in Maryland and since she's so sedated she won't even know whether or not I'm there, so I'm just sitting here waiting. It's a horrible feeling..

UPDATE 4/9/07 a.m.:
News isn't all that great, my grandmother was diagnosed with Lymphoma/Leukemia a few months ago which had been dormant for so many years, it affects her blood count. This is the update I just got: "Grandma won't be having surgery today as her blood count is very low once again and she is very dehydrated. They are going to give her blood and are rehydrating her. The break is very bad and in a very bad place, so they need to do the surgery as soon as possible (hopefully tomorrow), but have to wait until her blood count is back up. They're keeping her sedated to alleviate her pain. "
Keep those JL prayers coming. Thanks.

Oh dear; I know exactly what you're feeling. Prayers that the surgery will go well and she will heal. It's going to be a long road for her for awhile. Just try to be strong for her! PM me if you need to talk. Hugs, Sandy
