Sad..

This evening after work I went to visit Nan in the nursing home.
It breaks my heart to see her like that.

The morphine began today. The Doc who examined her has informed us that he believes she has a broken leg with severe bruising in her upper thigh. The nursing staff seem to think it's possibly her hip.
This has obviously happened during the move from hospital.

Jesus! Like she's not in enough pain already.

This wonderful lady, who never did any harm to anybody...ending her days in so much pain
It breaks me completely.

...and you know something? She's not complained once. All she's been wanting is a hand to hold so she knows someone is there.

So next time you feel the need to whinge about sod all...think of my Nan, eh?

:(

I tend to forget how the elderly generation have lived through so much more than we have and deal with things with so much more dignity than many younger people. Again I am humbled.
