Poor Mum

Mum managed to slip on the ice today and land hevaily on her arm. She then managed a few more paces and fell again, on top of the same arm and almost knock herself out. Somehow she managed to walk and slide the rest of the way home without leaving her shopping or handbag behind. Fashionista was at home as she is a teacher and the schools were shut. She called an ambulance.

Mum spent all day at the hospital having x-rays and sitting in various waiting rooms. She has a fractured wrist and badly bruised back. Of course her main concern is how she is going to make Dad's dinner. We have all warned her don't you dare go near that kitchen and the girls are keeping an eye on her.

She was in so much pain and in tears, until she got to the waiting room at the hospital and saw everyone sitting there with exactly the same problem, busted arms and legs from slips on the ice and she burst out laughing. She was soon chatting away with the other patients.

She is still in lots of pain, please remember her in your prayers.

  5. Oh poor Mum! Alhamdulillah for the medical care and for you looking after her. May Allah ease her aches and pains, and heal her fracture, Ameen ;)

    I hear you had a pretty bad snow storm, huh?

  6. May Allah swt make it easy for her Insha-Allah. We are so lucky to have such wonderful mothers who are more worried for us even when they are in so much pain. My mum also worries what her family going to eat when she really needs to rest :-) May Allah swt reward them with the best. Keep us updated sis.
