My heart almost sank last night…


Last night was almost really bad. I’m lucky enough to have both sets of grandparents still with us & we recently celebrated my mother’s father’s 88th birthday. God bless him seriously. He’s a tough man who was even in WWII. I love all my grandparents so much & I get so upset when something bad happens to them.

Last night we got a call that my grandfather was in the hospital. I hate when the house phone rings in the middle of the night. It’s never good. Apparently he went to a dinner with my grandmother for some insurance honor & he fell on the stairs & hit his head. My heart was in my throat. What really sucks is that I’m an hour and half away from them. I live in NY & they live in Connecticut. We never would have made it up there because it was raining & we were so tired. I wish they were closer.

Thank God he was okay. Omg he’s 88 he can’t afford to fall. He didn’t break anything & he just has a bump on his head & thankfully there is no other injuries. I’m really glad that he decided to go to the hospital just in case. If there is something really wrong don’t think twice about going to the hospital. If something gets worse your taken care of & they can help you.

It was a pretty big scare because we couldn’t get to them but he’s home now it just scared the shit out of me. I wish I could put them in a bubble. He needs to be more careful. Ohh sigh. I’m stressed out. We all need to stop running & just take a breath. This could have been worse. I guess the purpose for this post is to just tell you to be very careful & if your hurt make sure you go to the doctor or hospital. Okay I’ll be back later.

I'm glad your granddad is ok now, my grandparents are 2 of the most important people in my life, and whenever anything happens it worries me terribly.
Call him and tell him you love him and are glad he's ok. He'll appreciate it so much.
Take care. xx.
