I was writing to let everyone know the status of my Grandmother. She is doing very well. They did put a feeding tube in her stomach since she is still having a little trouble swallowing. They also moved her to Health South rehabilitation facility, so they can concentrate on her rehabilitation. They say she might be in there two months or more. This is the first night that no one has stayed with her since she had the stroke. It has hard for everyone to leave her by herself. I think she was even a little scared to be by herself also.
It is kind of scary to face something like that, and be a little vulnerable and not be able to help yourself. Especially be able to call out to family to help you. You always know family are always there for you. It will be kind of hard not having her with us at the table on Thanksgiving, but she will be with us in spirit. Mom and Grandpa will be going to see her tomorrow on Thanksgiving, and my niece and I will be cooking Thanksgiving dinner.
Happy Thanksgiving, and appreciate life and those around you. For you never know when you might lose them. Tell them you love them, and if you are having troubles nothing is worth losing the love of family. They are the heart and soul that keeps us going on, so love them and thank the Lord that you have them.
