Day 807

Tiggy Winkle falls

Tiggy Winkle fell and broke her hip this evening. Beloved and I were alerted by her emergency button. We found her in enormous pain. We ordered the ambulance and put pillows wherever it eased her. Mark, her son, turned up 45 minutes after us, and the ambulance another 45 minutes after that. She was given plenty of morphine and gas and air by the paramedics and she became much more comfortable. Magic.

    I am so glad that Tiggy Winkle has you and Beloved! I can't even imagine the poor dear waiting alone for 45 minutes for her son to show up if you hadn't arrived. Nearly two hours waiting for an ambulance? Goodness! I'm sure she greatly appreciates you all.

    She was very brave. Her son was returning from work in London. We were glad to be there for her, although helpless. x

    Sometimes, just being there is a huge blessing. I bet your presence brought her more peace and strength than you realize. :)
