Good News, Whew!

Oh thank you ALL for your prayers and comments!

My Mom took Nanny to the Doc today and from his thorough exam she didn't have TIA or a stroke!! She just basically leaned over and tumbled. He said "I can't find anything wrong with you!"...I hope they can say that about ME at 87!

Thankfully she had a base tan and had rolled in the dirt cause she would have been burned to a crisp. She's taking Aleeve and staying inside resting, eating and drinking.

Normally she would have had her phone with her, but not this time. So now we're considering a cell phone on one of our plans and I'm going to get her a different phone system for the house. Maybe we should also look into an "alert" system. It's hard to think of these as her "last days" with us....her people live long and die fast, those are her words. Her sister died this year, 94; her oldest sister died some 7 years ago, 95. Long lives.....

The Divine Grace of God kept her safe, I know that. She is a Godly woman and she said I just prayed "Lord help me get up"....I said "You should have added 'soon' to the back of that!"

Yes indeed it was God's protection. Just think: 87 years young and I do mean YOUNG because she IS active - in her yard and garden and home. She recently painted 4 rooms in her house...all by herself. I can't even get up enough gumption to paint my lil ole bathroom!

ME=lazy Nanny=always busy. That's what keeps her healthy. Plus she is so vain....about her looks and dress. Her hair is naturally auburn and only has a small streak of grey in the front - NEVER COLORS IT.

ME=jealous LOL!!!!

She is the only Grand I have left...she is da bomb!

Oh Sharon, I am so glad she is okay!!! She reminds me of our Grandma Zella before she passed away this past week.

I'm so glad she's all right! I'm sure you can figure out some sort of alert system...if she is now prone to dizzy spells, it would be worthwhile for her safety and for your peace of mind.

Good for her. I am glad to hear she didn't have a stroke. I hope I can be as active as she is when I am that age too. My neighbor is 83 and is active too. She is someone to emulate for sure.

I cannot stand it. LOL. She's too much. She fell so just took a nap since she couldn't get up. I am VERY thankful for you that she is okay and all she did was tumble over. Get her an alert system. She could wear it around her neck or as a "watch" and just push a button if it ever happened again.

I am so glad all was well with your Mum. Thank you for adding yourself as a follower of my journal. Your Mum must be like my Nan was, never coloured her hair and hardly any grey even to the day she left us. I started going grey in my late thirties.
