UPDATE (Sept. 21):
I have good news!!!!!
Grannie saw the orthopedic surgeon this morning. She doesn’t need surgery! Praise be to the most loving God….
She has a cast on her left leg up to her hip and is on pain meds. The cast will stay on for probably 6 to 8 weeks.
Grannie thanks all of you who’ve been praying for her. Please keep her in your prayers — for a quick recovery. 🙂
I just received awful news.
Last night, Fellowship of the Minds’ wonderful writer LowTechGrannie had an accident at home. She fell through her bathroom floor.
Her bathroom floor is being remodeled. But, in the middle of the night and in the dark, Grannie forgot that the floor had been removed.
She broke her left leg below the knee and has a huge gash in her right leg.
She managed to hoist herself up from the hole in the floor and was taken by ambulance to Emergency Room that night, where that nasty gash was stitched up, X-rays taken, and pain meds dispensed.
She sustained a fracture, called a tibial plateau, in her left leg below the knee. Grannie will know from the orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday morning if the fracture requires surgery.
Please pray for our friend — that she’ll receive proper medical care and that she’ll make a fast recovery.
I suggest we be very specific in our prayers. Please pray that the fracture be the kind that’ll heal itself, without surgery!
May our Lord, Jesus Christ, who is unimaginably, infinitely loving and merciful, hold our dear LTG in the protection and peace of His hands.
