Well, I hope no one misunderstood the facts about Gramps leaving the hospital, because he is back in the nursing home because there is no way that I could take care of him at home. He is not able to walk without a lot of help and then not even very far. Yesterday, at the hospital they had to put the Foley back in, so he was sent to the nursing home with it.
Yesterday when he was up for lunch sitting in a chair, he told me that he is tired of the fight for life, and just wants to die and go home to Heaven. He had very little breakfast and no lunch and very little fluids. (He refused to drink any more and was not passing any water to speak of). When they inserted the Foley, they got nearly 2 full liters of fluid (so to speak), and so left it in.
When we got him to the nursing home he decided he was hungry, so I told him that I guessed he decided he wasn't going to go that day (kind of joking with him). He ate pretty well but wouldn't drink any liquid to amount to anything. I will be going over a little later this morning. I am trying to catch up on some stuff here at home first. (Like laundry, ha).
I saw American Idol last night and was not surprised when Lee Weise won it. It would have been hard to decide which one I wanted to win. I like them both and they are great singers. Of course a lot of hullabaloo about Simon Cowell was on the show and I know his acerbic wit will be missed. He is the reason that a lot of people enjoyed watching Idol.
I told Gramps that we would be going to Texas in a couple of months and he seemed to be okay with it.
A lot of tough decisions are coming up for me, but with God's help, I know they will be right for us both.
Well, folks, I gotta quit this right now, and get with the program for the day. Haven't had breakfast yet, and you know it is the most important meal of the day. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends and loved ones. More later. Bye for now. Please continue praying for us. Thank you.
