My grandmother fell on Wednesday breaking her arm.
When asked how badly it hurt, she said..."a little".
Either she is astoundingly tough or she is having difficulties with adjectives.
Her bone splintered and jammed into the shoulder socket, two days on, it was determined that she needed a joint replacement in her shoulder. She's 87 years old.
Fortunately, the surgery went well and the prognosis is that in a month or so she will be able to reach the top of her head with her hand.
Fingers are crossed.
