Grandma Report

My wonderful grandma is doing worse. They are not talking about surgery for her fractured hip, but hospice. This makes me very, very sad. Okay, she's 96, but I want her to live! Yes, she's had a great life. Many of my most happy childhood memories are from when I would visit her each summer. She would spoil me (relative term, we were dirt poor, so she bought me new school clothes) and love me up!

I know I keep anonymous, but here's a picture of me and Grandma last year at her 95 birthday party.


Please pray for her, that she find peace (oops, I typed peach the first time!).

Please also take a moment to think about/call/thank the women in your life who bring/brought you joy.

I'm so, so sorry to hear this! :( Keeping you and your grandmother in my thoughts. (What a great photo, by the way.) I know that hospice feels like such a scary thing... I have the occassion to work with hospice workers for my job, and they are some of the kindest, most compassionate, supportive people in the world.
Sending a hug...

Grandmas are some of the most important creatures on the earth.

You are going to make me cry! My relationship with my grandmother is very similar- she just turned 93 and is about to undergo some medical tests - I'm worried & I am feeling same things you are. Thoughts & prayers with you and your grandmom- women like her and my g.mom are an inspiration to me. love you-
