Maw's not going to make the grand!


Well-Known Member
Just got the call, while getting into the truck out by the house she slipped and fell. They called rescue squad to get her up and they decided she needed to go to hospital and have her ankle looked at. It is broken in two places and they will be doing surgery this afternoon, yes, its the same ankle she did in the Caymens, Paw said xray shows she bent the pin they put in then!! I will keep you all posted as I know what is going on. Got some calls and cancellations to make. :(

Oh no! I am so sorry to read this, and I am practically crying! I have added Maw to my thoughts and prayers for today's surgery, as well as for her recovery, which is going to be emotional as well as physical.

Brenda, thank you for sharing this news. (And also for sharing your Maw with us -- many of us care for her as family.)

Oh my God... this is terrible news. And Maw and Paw were so looking forward to this cruise. JoAnn & I are really sorry to hear this bad news. Hopefully the surgery goes well.
Please keep us updated...

Aww...I can feel her heart breaking. She won't care about the ankle as much as missing that time with friends. So sorry...give Maw a huge hug for me...and Paw as he'll feel just as bad.

Oh Brenda, I don't know what to say, I'am just shocked. Poor Maw & Paw, they were both looking so forward to this cruise & spending time with all their Kids, as she calls them. I'am just heart broken for the both of them. I just talked to her yesterday & she was so excited & all ready to go.
I will keep her in my prayers & hope the surgery goes well.
Please keep us posted as you can.

Oh, no. :doubledown::doubledown::doubledown::doubledown::doubledown::doubledown: I was honestly thinking this was some kind of joke. It was all she thought and talked about the past few weeks. Please give her and Paw big hugs and prayers surgery goes well. Brenda, please keep us updated and take care of yourself. I am sure you are very upset and concerned.

OMG poor Maw...I am more worried about the break then the missed cruise...we will miss her and Paw but for her to be hurt is just awful and I am so sick at heart for her. We will keep her in our prayers for a safe surgery and please give her me and Bill's love when you talk to her and Paw!

That is so awful. I feel sad for both her and Paw. Hope that everything goes okay with that ankle. Prayers headed their way.

:(The latest is not sure if they will get surgery done today, as have to wait for blood results, and she had eat breakfast, so Paw says may not be till morning. Denise, I had called your house to let you know before hitting board, but guess you had gone out for your beauty treatments. Maw is bummed but spirits as pretty good. I also had called Red & E and they have spoken to her also. Will let you all know when anything changes.

Maw had been so careful to keep herself out of danger so she would make this cruise. I feel so sorry for Maw & Paw having to cancel. Wishing Maw a speedy recovery so she can make the Oct cruise.

FYI I typed that wrong above...she is NOT in ICU right now she isn't in any room. The nurse recommended not sending flowers in CASE she was put in ICU after the surgery. Thanks for the call Brenda and keeping us posted. Good talking to you too Jan. We are all so worried about Maw!

Now I'm crawling back to bed so as not to infect anyone with whatever the heck it is I've got!!!

Hugs to Maw from me!
