What a Cracker!


Geri Atric (aka Supergran) is in need of some cheering up. Having spent the last few months minding grandchildren during a family illness, Geri herself is now laid up with pneumonia and three cracked ribs!

Geri has been confined to bed since last Thursday as her mighty cough caused three ribs to break.  She is living on a diet of tomato soup, lemonade and ice lollies together with enough medicine to make the mind boggle.  Only the other day, I mentioned what a blessing it is to have supergrans like Geri who drop everything to come to the rescue when illness strikes. Well, now the boot is on the other foot and it’s Supergran Geri’s turn to have people come to her rescue.

Geri Atric’s blog Ageing Ungracefully is an absolute joy to read.  In her own words, it’s “an ageing lady’s confused and humorous battle for survival in a perplexing, ever changing, technological world”.  She’s a real cracker! Go visit her and leave a get-well message but whatever you do, don’t make her laugh!

    I used to get bruised ribs from bouts of bronchitis, but never actually broke anything. It sounds very painful.

  5. Steph says:

    Ian – even the thought of coughing with broken ribs, is enough to make your eyes water. Poor Geri! She was much in need of a break but NOT THIS SORT!
