Get Well Soon Mum

By franfoto
This is my Mum, She is 93 years old and has just had a very bad fall and broken her hip. She had an operation yesterday as is very poorly and we are all very anxious for her.
I just wanted to say "Get well soon Mum, we love you".
I took this lovely photograph of her for her 90th Birthday, it's from the same session as a previous upload 'Mum age 90' which I posted some time ago.
I had intended to post another floral but I am not feeling very creative at the moment and this one seems a lot more fitting at this time. Maybe we can all send positive thoughts out to her for a full recovery.
I will be away from Friday this week to spend some time with my family in the Midlands and visit my Mum every day so will catch up with you when I get back. Thank you all for dropping in.

You are one of the people on my "favorite" list. Forgive me if I do not make a comment every time I vote on your photos. I am so busy with the flying lately that I just do not have the time to make a sensible comment. This does not mean that I just "click" to give you a vote. Now and then I may surprise you with a written contribution!! Regards.

Thank you all for your recent get well messages for my Mother who recently had a fall and broke her hip. I did a print out of all the comments, thoughts and messages and took it with me to the hospital to show her. She was quite touched that you had taken the time to wish her well and the kindness shown by complete strangers, I can assure you that it really lifted her spirits and brought her comfort knowing that people care and I thank you all for this.
Best wishes
