Gram

I can't walk well. When it gets slushy and icy out I really can't walk well. It's been rather icy and slushy the last couple of days. I'm very angry about that because I need to go up to NY and visit with Gram at the hospital. But if I fall and break my head, I'll be visiting from the next bed. If ever a drought could be a good thing, I'd like to find out about now.

Gram is going to go into Physical Therapy starting Monday. It will be a move to another facility. She's not quitting just yet. I think that's very cool, and very brave. But you know what, it's just Gram doing what she thinks she needs to to not be a pain in the butt. See, she said she doesn't want to go home until she can walk because she doesn't want to be any trouble. Gotta love her. So she goes to rehab so she can walk well again.

The least I can do is get out there and see her, support her. So this week I go, ice or not. Keep praying for her with me, will ya?

  2. She continues to remain in my prayers on the smoke dear one. Have a safe visit with her, give her a gentle hug and let her know she has people thinking of her, who have never met her, yet wish her the best. (Hugs)Indigo

  4. sending good vibes and prayers to Gram... and you. I now know the feeling of not being able to walk well. It sucks! Please be careful in your travels.. I know walking thru just the little snow in my driveway to get to the car is hard and very scary.

  8. I'm sorry to hear about your Grandma. She sounds like a really nice lady. I lost my favorite grandma over quarter of a century ago. Hope you get to see her soon. Take care and have a Merry Christmas.

  10. I can imagine what you must be going through. There's never enough time with anyone, so try to spend as much as you can and stay on your feet. She's a fighter and there's always hope.
    Have a Merry Christmas ~ Lori
