(no subject)

I just found out today that my almost-96-year-old grandmother managed to break her leg the other day. Although a simple broken leg wasn't good enough for her - I'm told that she broke the neck of the femur, which will require surgical repair. I'm surprised that the surgery is expected only to take an hour and a half, and she's expected to be able to return to the nursing home on Monday.

Of course, there really is no guarantee that she'll even make it through surgery. She is, after all, almost 96 years old. Assuming she does, though, then she'll need to actually do the physical therapy that's prescribed - and she's more than stubborn enough to refuse to do so.

So I have no idea, right now, what's going to happen in the next few days - except that I'm going to go down and visit her. Just not sure yet where ...
