Bill was so great, he drove all the way down there with me. This is San Diego mind you, and from where we live, it’s usually about a three hour drive. I was really glad that he did that and that he sat there with my grandmother and me at the hospital. We were only there for about two and a half hours, but I know that meant a lot to my grandmother. AND thankfully, no one else was there, so it was just the three of us, not including her roommate on the other side of the curtain. AND ok, yes, the cousin showed up, but thankfully only for about 5 minutes. Full of fake pleasantries, and “oh, I’m so happy to see you!”
I was elated to see how much better she looked from the last time I saw her. Of course that was right after a major surgery that took twice as long as it should have. Thankfully she made it through and that’s all that mattered. She almost looked back to normal. Almost. I’m so amazed at what a strong woman she is, to be bouncing back so quickly. She is still a little weak but, oh I can’t even tell you how much better she’s doing. Of course we aren’t anywhere near the end for her, she’s got a long road of recovery ahead. But she’s moving along and I’m so happy!
I’m going to make sure I go back down and visit in about a month. I’d like to give her time to get out of the hospital and get settled at home and get her routine going with all the things she’ll need. I told her she has to slow down. She’s a very active woman in her church. Always going to conferences and trying to help other people. Now she just needs to focus on herself and healing herself. My strong lovely little grandmother, I love you dearly!
