With Gramps

Hey, Y'all,
Just wanted to let you know that I made the trip without any problems. No lost little old lady here! I left Knoxville about 7: 15 a.m. and then stopped in Lake City for breakfast at C.B. (surely you know by now what that is?) Then I hit the road again and got to the exit by about 1:15 p.m. and have just been talking to Gramps.

The nurse told me this morning that he is having difficulty swallowing pills. He told me it was because of the jaw surgery that he just had. (He is remembering back to the jaw surgery he had nearly 30 years ago. He couldn't remember what therapy he had today or what he had to eat. But he was sure glad to see me! He knew I had taken Hugh and Imazo back to Knoxville but he thinks he is in Illinois near Daniel, I think.

L.D. and Donna (his niece) are on their way here to visit with us. They have been visiting her uncle Billy who baptized L.D. today. He lives in Indiana which is not too far from here.

Gramps has a bell attached to his shirt so he can't get out of bed without alarming the staff.

I notice to my left shoulder there are shelves with books for patients to read if they so choose. Of course, I brought my own paperbacks with me and I brought Gramps' Bible to him. He is lying in bed watching the Colts play a football game.

Well that is about all I have to report right now. More later. Love to all of you.
Blabbin' Grammy signing off for right now. Bye for now.

I am glad you are there safe Grammy and he knows you and is glad you are with him. Hopefully, he will be able to return home in a few days. Yes, by now I know what C.B. is but would not have known on anyone's blog but yours! lol. I am thinking of you and praying for you. Love, Judy TN said...

I'm glad you made it back to Ohio with flying colors. Did you sing "On The Road Again" as you traveled today? Be careful and give your husband my best wishes for a speedy recovery. I hope it won't be long until you can bring him home. Love, Clara
