today is such a mixed day. was supposed to go out with my mum. which we did, later on, but during lunch my grandmother fell off her chair.
she fell backwards, but i think she fell on her bum which is not as bad as falling on her back. then my maid got so flustered she started talking really loudly and at one point it sounded like she was scolding my grandma(i couldn't decipher her Malay), and my grandma even said sorry to her ._. anyway my maid managed to get her up on the chair then i thought she'd be okay but after lunch she couldn't walk back to the couch.
i went over to see if i could help her walk but she couldn't move her right leg at all and she was shaking so i pushed the stool over for her to sit then started asking her where it hurt. she told me only her leg hurt and everything else was fine. i think i must have asked her like 3 times in 30 min. wanted to make sure she was really okay other than the leg.
called my dad and told him, i kept calling my mum but she was having her pilates lesson. dad said he'd come home and bring her to a doc. the maid called my uncle then i told him my dad was coming back. after a while i was at the comp then she said she could walk so i went to over to help the maid support her but once she stood up she felt the pain again. dad called again, said he'd call the ambulance instead cos she couldn't walk.
my maid got me a little pissed off cos she kept wanting to shift my grandma over to the couch and she even said something like she very 'susa'(?) cos she couldn't help bathe my grandma and etc etc cos she couldn't walk. hello, what is more important: bathing her or making sure her leg is okay? at one point she even took out clothes and adult diapers to change my grandma. ._.
anyway i think my grandma was still quite okay. i told her her son was gonna bring her to the hospital then distracted her by asking her if she knew who i was. obviously she forgot. at one point she kinda leaned forward then the maid thought she was going to fall again and she tried to catch my grandma and ended up hitting their heads together. grandma was fine but the maid's head hurt then my grandma was like "eh you knocked my head" which was quite amusing and broke the tension.
after that i met my mum and we went shopping but i think i lost the mood. bought a few things.
so dad texted my mum, told us the x-ray didn't show anything which is a relief because her bones aren't cracked or fractured or anything like that but she has to stay in the hospital for observation for two to three days. hopefully she'll return safe and sound and the maid will learn to be much more careful with my grandma. she was supposed to make sure my grandma sat on the chair properly lor! maybe we should give her a chair with the back thingy.
i think she'll be fine. i sure hope so.
