Marie, I'll keep your abuelita in my thoughts! I hope she has a great and fast recovery!
My abuelita once broke her finger because an iron fell in her hand. I was so scared and shaking so much *sniff sniff*

Wow, Marie, lots of well-wishes for her recovery! I know at 103 you gotta expect problems, but it doesn't seem to soften the impact any when something like that does happen - certainly seems that way, anyway. :hug
Chari; my Gramma is in her 90's and even tho she seems healthy and fit, I still worry. You can't help it!

My Dad broke his hip while we were on vacation in NM one summer.
He had to spend his vacation in the hospital, during an a/c breakdown, and a roommate who was a dirty old man (refused to wear his hospital gown, and was always lying in bed with legs wide open and the sheets at his feet. Just going in to the room to visit Dad, we had to avert our eyes. UGH! :spew2 )

:-| That's a weird phenomenon that seems to be more common than one would think. When I visited a great uncle at a nursing home there were a few old men that were known to uncover themselves 'by accident' when visitors or nurses came around and when my mother was a nurse she met quite of few old exhibitionists. :furthermore Batty old men. I can't find the rationality behind it. You never hear of old women doing that. Men are weird. :loco

It's called dementia. It's why many of them end up in nursing homes to begin with, unfortunately.

I agree with Virtu; men are just weird. Of course, ask anyone from NY city, and they'll tell you that men of all ages expose themselves quite frequently, usually on the subway.

As if they have something special to show off;

"Um, sir, they asked to see your ticket, not your stub." :roll:

Um. I rode the subway to school for 7 years (HS and Coll). The stories I've supressed! :roll:

Dad's privacy curtain was only one obstacle....but to enter the room, you had to pass the old perv's bed. One must learn to close eyes early to avoid any unneccessary viewing.....and the fact that he kept, "Hey, pretty ladies....." UGH! :bat
I was so glad Dad's convalescence commenced to Santa Fe. Phew! Dodged a really ugly bullet. (And, they had air conditioning. Thank you God! )

You know, most men are so proud of "themselves" that they want to show off for all the world to see. Come on guys. You see one, you've seen them all. (well some are better than others). Spare us!!

Yeah, and some guys like to say they're "hung like a horse", when it's more like, "my little pony" :roll:
