Thank you guys so much! You all mean so much to me! Grandma is in surgery now to put a plate and pin in her wrist and a pin in her pelvis. They successfully plugged the bleed in her pelvic area. Grandpa has 6 broken ribs not 3. His hip is fractured not broken. Tried him on morphine but that didn't cut the pain. They are going to give him an epidural. He also has to go on a ventilator because his left lung is slightly punctured and he isn't taking deep enough breaths.

Update! Grandma is standing by the bed with a walker! Grandpa is still having issues managing pain. Nurses tried to sit him on the edge of the bed but he couldn't bare the pain. They will be in a rehab center for at least 3mos. They're dog is living with us. Our dog and cats have accepted her thank goodness.

Both were sitting up in a chair today. Grandma is being a wuss. That's not surprising because she likes the attention.

Going to the rehab center right now. Grandma complaining the whole way. She has such a negative attitude. I don't think she even wants to get better. She likes all the attention too much to even care to try to get better. Grandpa is actually trying to get better. He's doing his breathing exercises more than his doctors told him to. And he does better sitting up and stays sitting up a lot longer than Grandma does. Grandma sits up for about 10 or 15 minutes and then says," Oh, I need to get back in bed." Grandpa sat up for 25 mins. for the first time Sunday. She's not even making an effort. I hope this rehab center doesn't go easy on her. The doctors told them both that this rehab center is really good and that they will work you. They will have rehab 3 hours a day. Now, whether that's all together or 1 hour 3x a day idk. But, Please pray for an attitude change for grandma. We're all tired of her saying,"I can't do it." When she won't even try.
