Yiayia is sick
Yiayia is in the hospital. My mother called this morning to tell me. My yiaya has been in and out of the nursing home or the hospital for nearly a year. She fell and broke her hip last year trying to get out of bed. She went to the rehabilitation/nursing home after that. I think that her Dr. thought with the proper care her hip would heal, but she finally had to have surgery last fall. When I saw her after that surgery, she looked as though she was barely herself. I don't know if the medication was the culprit. I feared that I was seeing early signs of dementia. It broke my heart to see her in that condition. I need to see her today. This new year has really been pretty sour so far.
