Our recent trip to Bicol last week thought us immeasurable learnings and great challenge. Inay fell to the ground accidentally while we were running errands for her to the other town. She stepped to a big stone holding our screen door not to close and out balanced herself. That happened on Friday afternoon after we had our feast in the morning for the “Santa Cruz de Mayo”.
On Saturday, we brought Lola to her local physician and she was given pain reliever her painful hip and legs. We all thought everything is getting back to normal because of the pain reliever given to her. We were on the road going back to Manila on Sunday afternoon. Lola is at Tita Rose’s place the whole Monday but kept complaining with the growing pain.
Finally she was convinced to visit a doctor here in Manila but we decided to have her confined while on recovery. Lola was admitted to Chinese General Hospital on Tuesday. Her doctor immediately performed operation for her left fractured hip on Wednesday.
As I write this article, I am beside my strong Lola who is fastly recovering from the surgical operation. She is now back to her normal habit of giving left and right errands to us or who ever is near her except that she still cannot move her left leg that was wounded because of the operation.
My Uncle in Saudi would like to see pictures of my Lola during her stay in the hospital I will also send him direct mail postcards when I send him the photos. Tomorrow, I will make sure I find time to do it.
