Could I ask you to pray, think positive thoughts or whatever you like to do for this lady; ed-collision/article-1370063-detail/article.html

She's my Grandma. Very fit and healthy previously (probably in better shape than me!) but she (and our family) could do with anything extra.

No Faux-pas at all, So sorry that your Grandma has been involved in such a bad accident.sad How are things now? I hope you dont mind if I ask the lovely ladies on the prayer thread to come and have a look. You are guaranteed prayers and they are all lovely! smile

Thankyou that would be fantastic - didnt know it existed!
She's in intensive care - has had an epidural to repair her broken leg (as its a lower risk than general) plus it will help her to breathe less painfully. Her lung function is a worry as she has an air leak in her lung and having so many broken ribs means its so painful to breathe. It's really worrying. One Dr said she has less than 50% chance of survival because of her impaired lung function. There has been a suggestion that she may need her leg amputated. Other staff seem more positive and I keep thinking that less than 50% still could mean 49% which is quite good!!! Despite everything, when she is awake and able to talk she has been commenting that her house is easily wheelchair accessible - bless her so she is really in practical mode and positive too.
It seems so unfair and cruel given how healthy she kept herself.
I am also thinking of the person who knocked her down and they must be having a bit of a mare too.
Oh dear.
However some people who we dont know but who witnessed the accident have left lovely messages of support which have been so moving. It really makes you stop and appreciate how kind perfect strangers can be.

Your poor Grandma! It says in the comments in the link that the lady who hit didn't stop at a crossing, how awful! People just don't care/pay attention to pedestrians!

Thinking of your Grandma, I hope she make a good recovery!

Thanks again guys! Physically she seems like she's doing OK - well even! She seems to have gone rather awry mentally though - and is saying all sorts of weird (and often very funny!) things. I'm hoping it's the drugs...
