This morning i was going to bus stop with my four grandchildren to catch the school bus,and unfortunately i tripped up and fell face down in the wet earth, and i could not get up by myself.My ten year old grandaughter ran to a neighbour's house to ask for help, and my little seven year old grand daughter picked up my glasses to clean them, the ambulance was rang for and came within a few minutes it seemed, and everybody was very efficent, kind and cheerful, they asked me which hospital i would like to be sent too, and I choose a small hospital in the town where my daughter lives.It is the first time i have been there.
It was reakky amazing how efficient the staff worked, from the brancardier , nurses, doctor, x ray departement, and of course the firemen who came at the beginning and did lots of tests in the ambulance.
I got away with a fractured tibia, and a problem with the rotule;
i was very glad to get back home , but contented after all the excellent people who take care of US when we have accidents.
Ooh Carol - sorry to hear that. Get better soon xx
Aïe! Poor you, heal up quickly.
What a horrible shock to the system Carol and I hope you're all healed up soon. I must say I'm very impressed with your young granddaughters for taking charge and helping you. Sending you a virtual hug. V x
What a shock, I hope you get well soon.
Sounds nasty - good luck with the healing. What lovely grand daughters you have
Thank you for your kind messages,i feel a bit better today, and my daughter and my grandchildren came to see me yesterday evening. My fgrandson Paul who is 8 years old cried all afternoon at school, i think he was just frightened ,and he seems a lot better today.Have a nice day to you all.
oh Carol, I do hope you feel better soon, how fortunate though you had such brave grandchildren around you to help get you sorted. Drink Tea & get better xx
Get well soon Carol, hope you are not in too much pain.
Carol, I don't know you, but I feel for you, and I am glad you had a good experience and the grand children had quick reflexes to get the neighbor's help, to clean your glasses, I too wear glasses and when without them I feel lost. I hope you are comfortable and on the mend. Take care.
I naturally, totally sympathise after 2012! Recover quickly and how lucky you were to have the young ones with you.
