Please send along healing thoughts, wishes and prayers for my beloved grandfather, affectionately known as "Buppa," who fell in the middle of the night and broke his hip. He apparently spent several hours trying to crawl to a phone so that he could call 911. It's just heartwrenching to think about my 86-year-old grandfather in such agony like that -- hip fractures are incredibly painful. He's scheduled for surgery Tuesday morning. He's a strong ol' bird, but he can use good wishes for a speedy and healthy recovery. Be sure to check in on your own older loved ones every day!
