thank you

Thank you all so very much for your sweet and kind words, with my Mother having to go to the hospital.

Sadly on Sunday evening she fell, while going to the bathroom and fractured her hip so we were really disappointed this happened. She  went into surgery this morning and we are so grateful that the operation seemed to go well and she is now back in the ward resting.
It will be a long hard road to get her mobility back again, so we are hoping that she will make a good recovery.

Hope you are having a wonderful week 


  1. Oh Carolyn...I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's illness and now her fall. My heart is with you and your dear mom. I wish her a speedy recovery, but understand the long road ahead.
    I know your Reno is on hold because of your dear mother, but I am anxious to see your beautiful room when it is finished. I know you have been working hard...

    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead...
    Hugs and love,
    Nancy xo

  13. So sorry to hear about your mom. Getting her up and moving is the trick. My mom is 93 and in the past years broke both hips about 2 years apart and had both replaced. After the first one we made sure that when we visited her she was up and moving. She sort of gave up after the second one and uses a wheelchair now exclusively. Sad to see since she was always active.
    Give your mom a hug and lots of encouragement.

  14. Hi Carolyn,
    I will definitely be saying some prayers for your mom's difficult recovery. I hope it will be a swift one.

  15. Prayers for ypur mom again darling.....i hope she will recover soon ...love love love ...xxx...

  16. Dear Carolyn,
    I'm so sorry for your mother!
    And i really hope she'll get well sooner!
    Don't worry, she can manage it even if the road is long.
    My grandfather had the same illness at 87 years old and he came back to walk! ;)

  18. Dearest Carolyn,

    Missed your previous post, must have happened when the power was off due to thunderstorms and I did not go back to your post again...
    So sorry to read about a primary and now a huge secondary problem. One never knows what is around the bend with our aging parents. Good news is that her surgery went well. She will recover but things take time at that age.
    Hugs to you all,

  19. Oh dear Carolyn, how awful, I`m so sorry for you, and for your mother, dear.
    I know how hard that is from my own mother,whom broke her leg 2 times.
    I hope your mother will be able to recover good, and fully.
    You are in my thoughts dear friend.
    Hugs from Dorthe
