I know you all know that
my Grammy lives with us and
has since the day I came home
13yrs ago, so she has been my
buddy and lately sleeping pal.
She is Dad's mom and just had
her 80th birthday last sunday....
But that is when it happend,
she fell (she says her knee gave out)
and she broke her femur bone and
it came out of her skin, so Mom
and Dad had to call 911, terrible
so they put a rod and screws in last
sunday and then on Thursday they closed
it up to make sure no infection.
Well on Friday they tried to get her
out of bed and it didn't go to well,
they acutually wanted to send her home
Mom and Dad are worried cause it's going
to be hard. Well they think something
is wrong with her knee now. So today
she is going to rehab for atleast 2
months. Do you think I will be able
to visit her? Hope so!!
I get very lonely during the day
the neighbors and my Uncle have
been coming down to let me out
through out the day. I keep going
down to her area to look for her:-(
Thanks for listening pals!
Petey sorry to hear about grandma. I worry bout my grandpa too he's 89. He started living with mom's sister 2 weeks ago
Hope she's better soon
Sorry to hear this about your Grandma. We will be pawraying for her.Hang stuff Petey..Huggs!
Thank you Reilly and Harley Diva Girl!!
Oh Petey, we are so sorry your Grandma got hurted. We will be praying that she starts feeling better. Maybe you will be able to go visit her.
Sending love and prayers for your grandma. Hope she gets well soon. Sure hope you do get to go see her *hugs*
Thank you Zoe and Abby...I hope I can go and see her too, I know she will be excited to see me, Mom says that she asks about me all the time, she is more worried about me than herself...
Petey, we're so sorry to hear about your grandma.
All of us pups are sending lots of POTP to her. I hope that you get to see her soon, because having you around will help her so much. I know that you will shower her with love.
Sending lots of positive thoughts for your grammy, Petey. My grammy is 86 and I know mom worries about her lots. Hopefully you will be able to see your grammy in the rehab centre. Hugs!
OMD...So sorry about Grandma! My mom says sometimes with Osteoporosis, the bone just breaks and it feels like something gave out but it's just the bone collapsing. Ick. Can't believe it was a compound fracture....that's horrible. It's good she's going to rehab! I bet they will let you visit. My great grandma just died last Sat. She was 103! I never got to meet her but my mom went to VA for the funeral. My mom says this April has been a wierd month.
I r sowwy dat yur grandma r sick. My grandma r nod doing gud either bud hers nod in da hospital. I hope yur grandma geds well soon.
Thank you Riley, Sunny, Abby and Luna...
Sunny, when she first fell and Dad and Uncle ran to her, she yelled right away that she broke her leg, and Dad saw the blood on her pants, but he thought it was he knee cause she has both knees replaced so he just thought it was the skin that had be cut, couldn't see the bone cause it didn't rip through her pants, but we later found out that it was when we got to the hospital. Grammy has lots of health problems, so this is not going to be easy for her.
Sorry to hear about your Grandma too...hugs
Petey, I'm sorry to hear this. I know you miss her lots and you know she misses you too. We will all send prayers for her to recover. Maybe momma can work real fast with you and get you certified to be a therapy dog and then they have to let you in to see her!BOL I think it might be easier for the pawrents to sneak you in!
OMD! Me & growlmy sure hope that your Grammy will recover well and completely. How scary to have that happen in your house:(
Sending lots of POTP from us, as well as pawyers and hugs.
Maybe if you can be convinced to hush, you will get by the nurses desk to be able to visit your Grammy.
Where growlmy works, she sees a lot of pups coming in to see their furmily members, they are not therapy dogs, just family, so give it a try fur sure, it will really be good fur your Grammy to see you and fur you to be with her, too.
Just make sure you stay quiet and have your leash on...
Thank you Buddy,
I think it would be easier for them to sneak me in too, Im not up to taking any classes, to old for that...BOL
Thank you MJF...
Mom felt so bad for her, and she gets upset when people are hurt and bleeding that Dad and Uncle had to stay with her, me and Mom were upstairs cause I was going insane to get down there to her.
But once she gets to a rehab and settled in they are going to see if I can come for a visit, cause now it might not happen today, no beds ready
Petey isn't it just like Grandma's to be worried about others and not theirselves so much. She loves you a lot to be worrying about you. Our prayers and love go out to your entire family. Speedy healings Grams ♥
Sending her lotsa POTP.
Thank you Milton and Whitley!
you are so right Milton, everytime we go there first words are "how is petey handling all this" She has a very long and difficult road ahead of her.
Oh dear, Petey, so sorry your Grammy and your whole family is goin' through all this. Hugs and love to all!
Thank you Pepper, it's great to know that I have my pals to talk to about this!
So sorry to hear about your grammy, Petey. I know you're missing each other and I hope rehab helps her.
Aww, Petey, I'm so sorry!! We're sendin' lotsa POP fur your grammy!! Hopefully, you can see her soon!
Aww Petey, we're so sorry about your Grammy. We understand how it is when our Grammy's aren't well. I betcha if the pawrents can't bring you actually inside to see your Grammy, that maybe they could bring her outside in a wheelchair and ya'll could visit in the nice fresh air. Seeing you will definitely put a smile on her face.
We sent her some get well flowers...
Get well flowers for your Grammy
Aw Petey I'm so sorry to hear this! Lots of POP for your Gramma for a speedy recovery!
Sure hope your Grammy is back to normal real soon,Petey. They should let you visit as you would make a great therapy dog!
Sending lots of healing smoochies for your grandma to hurry and get well. Now, Harley Davidson said to tell you that lots of nursing homes and rehabs let the family pets come visit, so your pawrents need to see if that is possible. Hope you can visit her!
So sorry to hear that Petey. As for the rehab question Grandma Goldie is in a rehab hospital and her dog Willy gets to go and visit her all the time.
and so sorry to hear this... but she WILL get better... give it time... older muscles take a little more time... can vouch for that !
Love and HUGSSSSSSSSSSS

She is still in the hospital, let's just say that insurance companies are just plain awful. Yesterday we thought that she was going to go to another place around 6pm got a call at 5pm that the insurance company is saying NO, so they are going to make more calls...ugh!!!!
Again Thank you everypup!!!
We are praying for your grammy Petey. Hope she is better ASAP!

Oh Petey! I am so furry sowee you hear about your grammy! I hope she feels better soon! Make sure you give her lotsa kisses when you see her to make her feel better. I bet that really hurt breaking a femur. I hope they let you visit her in rehab. Be thankful for all the time you get to spend with her.
Lotsa hugs and POTP and Westie mojo and all that stuff on the way... hope she feels better soon. My Momma's momma fell and broke her hip earlier this year... recovery can be tough at that age....
Thank you Diesel, Louie and Finley....
We got a call yesterday that they finally got the ok from the insurance and she can go to rehab, she was suppose to be transported last night, so we will be going there on Friday, we want to give her a day to get adjusted. The social worker said that they worked with her at the hospital yesterday, she can NOT Stand on her own at ALL and was very shakey even when the held her...she told the social worker that she is scared about her other leg giving out and she will fall again...:-(
She'll definitely get the treatment she needs to become stronger again at the rehab facility. Sending her love and hugs from us.
~Austin, Doo & Mom
Thank you Austin,Doo and Mom...will keep you posted
Rehab is the greatest thing! Growlmy used to work in a rehab pawlace befur she came to be married...and peeps got to learn all kinds of things to get stronger and to learn/relearn life skills that most peeps do not even think of until they can't, like walking, etc.
It is hard work for the peep getting/doing rehab, kind of like a job, but well worth the effort and rehab is not considered at all if the docs think there is not any chance of getting better/stronger/independent again.
Kudos to your Grammy and best wishes for a good, strong recovery.
I sure hope you will be able to give her some healing licks, Petey!
MJF & Growlmy
Thank you MJF!!
Guess what pals, I went to see Grammy twice so far!! Yep she was so happy to see me and I her, I sat in Mom's lap and just licked Grammy's hand the whole time I was there. They say I can come back whenever I want!! YAY!! Yesterday I saw another dog there too.
Grammy is a little sad still, not much therapy they are trying to strenghten her leg so she can put weight on it, Dad did alot of work on Grammy's area this weekend too, he moved her furniture and got rid of alot of stuff and painted too.
Thank you pals for just listening and being there for us!!!
Petey and Mom
That's so great that you've gotten to see your Grammy! I know she enjoys seeing you and all the kisses you give her. Sending her good wishes from your pals down here in Texas.
~Austin, Doo & Mom
Thank you Austin, Doo and Mom...it was so good to see her and now I know where she is and Mom and Dad will take me to see her as much as they can.
Petey, we're so glad that you've got to visit grandma. You will be the best medicine for her.
I know that she was so happy to see you.
SO pleased you got to see Grammy !
She WILL get better.... and the Rehab will build her confidence as well as her muscles. Your love and licks will help SO much as well Petey !
Thank you Riley and Flicka,
I sure hope that my visits will help her, we are hoping that soon we can take her outside on the grounds cause it is really pretty there and this way she can get some fresh air too, she still is in alot of pain:-(

Sending comforting, healing and strengthening licks, wags and pawyers to your Grammy, Petey!
Hugs to all!
Getting to go outside will be a wonderfur change of scenery and fresh air is so invigorating!
Thank you Droopy, rascal and Mommie, I know she is very happy to see me, cause when she first got there and saw that dogs could come there she called home and told Dad to bring me up.:-)
Thank you MJF that means alot to us! we saw another little dog there yesterday too, and I even went out into the hall way cause there were some ladies that were calling to me so I let them rub on me too.
I do think that she will love getting outside again too!
We are so happy you got to see your Grandma. I know that when Daddy's Grandma went into the hospital she hated it until she saw her Willy. Sometimes people need to see their pets in order to feel a little bit better about a bad situation.
Thank you Monty, I do think that when she did see me she was happy, but I could tell when we leave she gets sad.
Yesterday she went back to the hospital to see the surgeon and have another x-ray of her leg, they said she can NOT put weight on that leg for 7-8 wks cause she had shattered the bone and they needed to fit her for a new brace cause the one she had on was doing more damage...ugh she goes back to the hospital in a week.
OMD, that is so sad. We didn't know you were going through all of this. Lots of woofs and shnuffles from our entire family, furry and otherwise. I'm so happy, Petey, that you can bring her some joy and visit. This is ruff on your family. Hang in there, furiend.
Thank you so much Miley!! I get to go up there quite often to see her, and we think she is doing ok.
But yesterday when Dad got home he got a call from the place where she is at and told him that they have to send her home on this Thursday cause the insurance will not pay any more. Dad was furious cause she CAN NOT walk yet, she has 2 more weeks to strengthen the leg and then she will be able to put weight on it. They told her 6 weeks for her leg to heal. So now Dad has to go to the place and fill out paper work to get an extension and then they were talking about her life insurance policies and her social securty, she lives with us cause she has NO money, this is not turning out very well, hopefully Dad will get it all fixed. We don't understand how they could possible sent an 80yr old woman who can't walk home!!!
Mr Jack's Mum and Dad....
I am so very very sorry the system is doing this to you... and to Mum.
I saw this also happen in UK when everything folk had worked all their lives for got taken from them when they had been responsible and tried all their lives to pay their way so to speak.
I am hoping you can sort this out....know that even if we cant make it right for you.. we ARE here for you.
Love and Hugsss
Flicka ∆,,∆ & Lucas /..| Cleo (I.M.) ∆,,∆ & Pam X
Thank you so much Flicka and Mom...
Mom and Dad were saying the same thing last night that you work hard and pay to have insurance your whole life and you when you do need it they fail you in some way or another. And her life insurance policies are a joke too, the one she took out 2yrs ago and it turns out that it's only for 2,000 dollars and she pays almost 400 bucks a month for it, that is criminal to me. How can companies do that to people and sleep at night....ugh!! Thanks for listening and being there!!
Petey and Kim
SO sorry .. I meant Petey at the beginning of my Post too... PLEASE feel free to correct that.
yes.. here an Insurance clerk can be god. sad... bitterly wrong too.
It is to my way of thinking robbery... and in other cases murder.....
Hoping you can sort this out... please know we DO care Petey and Kim.
BOL, Flicka! But don't worry, I furgive you...
That is so furry frustrating, Petey! I sure hope she will be able to get the help she needs. What a pain to have to deal with those insurance companies...we hear things like that here at growlmy's work, too once in a while:(
Pawyerring fur a good outcome.
no worries Flicka,
Thank you MJF, Dad is going there today to talk with the woman and fill the papers out. I will keep ya'll posted!
