Got Any Prayers/Good Vibes To Wing This Way?

Received a very quick call from Mum this morning as she was trying to shove some cereal in her face before going to work. Apparently, last night(AU time) Nan had put some rubbish in the wheelie bin outside then when she turned to come back inside she ended up falling over. She doesn't remember "having a turn or anything like that" but she did fall.

And then somehow crawled back inside with a fractured pelvis. (Not to mention the rheumatoid arthritis in her spine and hands.) The next bit's a bit fuzzy because I'm getting it fourthhand but either she's called my Aunt who was on break, or waited the few minutes after she managed to get back in the house it would take for the Aunt to call. (She's the one who lives with Nan.)

Boy, did she get a lecture when she finally called the Ambos and they arrived. We've tried to drill it into her to call 000 (Aus version of 911) but she always calls a family member first, or someone thankfully has been at home if something's happened in the past.

I honestly thought she had one of those emergency alert systems, but am betting she talked them out of getting her one each time it's been brought up. Hopefully now they'll override her stubborn old {mumblemutter} But knowing her she'd still probably try and reach family first.

Sorry. Ranting, but it was a bit of a shock to wake up from a dead sleep to that sort of news.

Any prayers you could spare for a speedy recovery would be much appreciated.

Oh poor Nan, I hope she is feeling better soon. Good thoughts heading your way, and hers!
