Hip surgery and divine providence has brought Grandma Feltes to a nursing home. As Aunt Ellen reports:
We met a gentleman named Steve. He was telling us he was ready to “check out.” Mom told him she wanted to check out too and go home! He said, “Oh no I want to check out of life, I hate being a burden!” I told him, “Don’t say that, I’m sure your family loves you very much!” Mom told him she was 96 years old and she fell and broke her hip and she had her hip replaced. She told him she’s doing therapy so she can go home! Mom told him she had nine children. He was amazed! He literally had tears come down his cheeks and he told mom she was a true inspiration to him! He told her she gave him motivation and he was going to work hard to go home too! Mom told him, “Good, you do that.” We saw him at dinner tonight and he told the people sitting at his table that they need to make sure they meet that “amazing woman.”
After dinner, I took mom to play Bingo. She won a whole dollar!
