A Bigger Disaster

I just got my internet sorted out when an even bigger - and more serious - disaster happened!  Those of you on Facebook already know that I posted from our local A&E yesterday evening because my sweet mother went flying on the bathroom floor and was rushed into hospital in an ambulance.  It turned out, at ninety-two, she had broken her hip quite badly!  I was frantic.  I stayed with her until 01:00 this morning and left when they took her up to the ward to make her as comfortable as possible for the night, and said they would operate tomorrow (today).  It broke my heart to see this sweet angel crying out in agony whenever they tried to turn her or do anything.   I went home in tears.

She had the surgery this afternoon 15:00 and was out of surgery and back on the ward by about 19:30.  They said that surgery had gone well and she was dozing.  I told them that I would let her rest and would visit her tomorrow.  To take my mind off things a bit, I decided to make a card for her while I was waiting to hear news.

I used a Penny Black stamp of her favourite flower - an Iris - I suspect, because that is what her name is, and a little sparkle (as she loves anything that sparkles and shines).  Here it is, I couldn't quite get the colours perfect, I think the closest is probably the one with the ink pad in the picture.

My thanks to everyone who sent words of love and caring thoughts.  When I tell mum she will be thrilled at the generosity of strangers, who are friends!

As always, thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You are all appreciated more than you know!

If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
