Mrs. Grouch took a seriously bad fall Friday morning. I got a call from her cell phone and it was a co-worker telling me that the ambulance was taking her to the hospital. Appearantly she caught her shoe on the carpet at work and fell forward hitting the wall with enough force to break the plasterboard. Injuries include a broken eye socket and broken nose, neither of which is likely to need surgery. The swelling has gone down enough that she can see out of both eyes but she's still waiting for the opthomlogist to check out the injured eye. They also want to do an ultra sound on her neck so she's still in the hospital. CAT scans have ruled out stroke or a heart attack as the initial cause of the fall.
She's going to look pretty funny in the Christmas pictures this year. She looks like a hockey player who won the game by stopping the puck with her face. There's also going to be a lot of Christmas pictures taken because 8 of the grandkids are getting digital cameras from us.
