AGAIN

You guys have been so patient with me....thank you.

So, after Papa died, I was happily trying to reclaim some semblance of normalcy. I got in KIND OF good shape with coupons. I got laundry caught up. The house was cleaned. I went to a party, had a party and was supposed to go to another.

And then......

I got a phone call from my mother saying that HER mother (my grandmother who is 101 years young) was in the hospital and not doing well. Not doing well to the point that family is being called in to see her.

So, yesterday, I got up a 5:00 a.m. (not early for some, but I get up at 7) to make the drive to Oklahoma and sit with my Mam-ma. I saw quite a bit of family.

She doesn't really look well....she IS 101. Some people keep expecting her to pull through. "She's strong," they say.

SHE'S 101!!!

Oh, well. Only time will tell. She might make it another week, month, or even year. Or, she might be gone tonight. I'll keep you updated.

Again, I appreciate your patience, your loyalty and your prayers.

Oh wow LL this is has been a rough time for you. I'm glad you got to see her. Prayers for your family and you as you face another rough time whenever it should arrive. It's not often I hear someone I know say they have a grandparent whose 101 that is awesome,IMO.

Aw hugs LL. I am very happy that you got to see her, and you betcha she's strong! But she's also a woman who has lived a wonderfully long life and it it's time, then what a good time.

What a tremendous life I'm sure she's led. Prayers for her and your family.

LL- My prayers go out to you. Death is never an easy thing for those left behind. It helps me to remember that they are in a place where there are no tears. May God Bless you and keep you in His arms today, tomorrow and in the future.
