Last night my mom heard a bang again. She's like lightning my mom. She raced downstairs to find grams on the floor in the bathroom, almost passed out. Grams takes a sleeping pill every night and we wish she wouldn't do that. This thing knocks her out LITERALLY. Mom had to pick her up and bring her back to bed. It really upset her. Grams is fine believe it or not. She has bad osteoporosis and at 80 years old has banged her head a thousand times, it's like a rock that thing. But between her and gramps falling all the time, mom worries. My momma tries to make the house as safe as she can. She's going to go to Walmart and get some railings for their human potty and hope that will help. Mom is quick I tell ya. Gramps has fallen off a ladder and broken his broke his leg. Then he fell down the stairs and shattered that same leg real bad. Broke his femur! I guess that's a really painful big bone in humans. That one was really bad! Gramps has had strokes, high blood pressure, had prostate cancer (he's cancer free for 6 years now), grams has ulcers and colititis, pancreatitis, leaky heart valve, on and on and on. They are both in their 80s and mom knows they won't always be here and it scares her to think that one of these days, they might not be so lucky. We hope that doesn't happen for a long time! We love our grammy and grampy! And it'll really tear mom apart when that day comes. All you furbabies out there, enjoy your pawents and grandpawents if they are still with you!
I am glad Grams is okay! Purring and purraying for you and your whole family. So true, we have to enjoy and treasure every moment with our families.
Hugz and purrs, Sassy
Thanks Sassy. Grams is okay because now she's joking around about it! She doesn't even remember it. Momma doesn't think it's funny though.
I agree we need to treasure every moment with them. You are lucky you still have them with you. 80 is a pawsome age, many purrs to them.
Lacey that is so pawsome that your Mommy is there to help your Grammy and Grampy. We have one Grammy who is 80 years old also, and it's very painful sometimes to see her having more difficulty with walking, memory, etc. Our other Grammy is still in her 60's so she's still purrty spry, but Mom knows there will come a day when her health will fail, too. You gotta love em' and appurrciate that they are still here with us!
Thanks Tulley. Mom says she couldn't live with herself if she wasn't here all those times things happened and they needed her. She went downstairs and made grammy promise to take only half her pill tonight and ONLY when she's sitting in her bed! Jeez! My momma doesn't need to have a heart attack herself for gosh sakes.
Sending purrs to your grammy and grampy.
Purring for your grammy and grampy!
Thank you Jezzy and Lucy! They're doing just fine now. No damage was done (this time). Phew! They sure keep momma on her toes. For two old people they tucker momma out!
My mom knows how you feel. She hears bangs all the time and jumps outta bed to find Memz on the floor. Memz had a stroke and it makes her unbalanced. Get Life alert. My memz has it. Its a button and she wears in when mom isn't home. So that way if she falls down and needs help, she just presses the button and those EMT people come over. Hope your Grammy and Grampy are okay!
That's great that your momma is there for your grams and gramps. It sounds like that was scary - we're sending purrs. Our gramma and gramps are getting older, too...Sigh...
