I Got 99 Problems and a Hip Ain’t One

Oh wait…yes it is.

In our second consecutive Lunchtime Lyrics post (thanks Jay-Z, but no link for this one – might be kids listening!), we update you on a medical issue NOT involving Eliana.

My parents (Bonnie & Lewis / Bubbe & Grandpa) were supposed to leave for a 7-week motorhome trip to the Grand Canyon yesterday.  There was a trip, but unfortunately it involved Bubbe tripping over the bottom step of the motorhome and breaking her left hip.  Not a great day.

So…she’s been in the hospital since yesterday evening and scheduled for surgery late this afternoon.  Seems like a fairly “easy” one (assuming nothing wacky shows up once they get all up in there), and the expectation is that she’ll be headed home for rest, recovery and rehab as early as Friday or Saturday.  Of course she has her phone, tablet and Internet access, so if you know how to reach her knock yourself out.  Not literally, of course – no reason to create MORE injuries.

She specifically asked me to not post a picture, so obviously…


Not nearly as cute as Eliana, but gotta do what ya’ can with what ya’ got.

Oh, and by the way, things still looking good for Eliana.  She’s off all the painkillers and everything today, so assuming nothing crazy happens we’ll get her reacquainted with Home sometime tomorrow.

    Certainly you have negotiated a “family” rate, haven’t you? I mean it only stand to reason that actually you have probably spend so much money that your family should have a hospital suite in commemoration! It’s ALWAYS something!

      Unfortunately, it’s a different hospital so I couldn’t even pull any strings. But their new single occupancy rooms were nice in case we ever need anything closer to home.

        Yes, it is wonderful hearing such good news about Eliana. Of course, not so good about the “trip.” And, Hank does have quite a set. He is not intimidated by anyone or anything.
