If you find this post full of mistakes then excuse me but I am fit to drop. at 5.30 this morning we awoke to such a crash. My poor old 92 year old mum had fallen in her bedroom and she was screaming out in pain. When I opened the door I felt sick to see her hand at an angle that shouldn't have been possible. The wonderful paramedics were so fantastic with her and once a little morphine was in her system she was happy as Larry. When we got to the hospital we were followed in by 4 firemen who were helping bring in a very large lady. The ambulance men were pulling mum's leg about fancying the firemen and at 92 she came out with "I'd have to take them one at a time but it would be them needing the oxygen, not me". I was mortified but the ambulance attendants were nearly wetting themselves. Anyway, they pulled her wrist back into position to set the break and let her come home. This is the second fall in a week so we are very concerned. I am so tired I can't keep my eyes open. Wish me luck everyone, I think I am going to need it xx
