My 85 year old Aunt is currently in hospital after suffering a fall on the ice last week and as a result has a broken hip and elbow.
At the moment she is as chirpy as ever but I am struggling to keep my emotions hidden from her at the moment. I think it hits me how she is 'trapped' in a hospital as she is one of the most active 85 year olds you could ever meet, always walking up to Asda and back! I just don't think she will ever be the same again after the operation at such an elderly age :( ... She was planning a trip back to her home - Ireland in a few weeks but that is now obviously off the cards, and she is probably going to be spending all Christmas recovering.
Also brings back flashbacks of the moments my uncle and grandad passed away.
Sorry about this post I just had to get my thoughts onto paper somehow as I want to remain positive which is proving difficult at the moment :(
