Gram update

This is my Grandma and Grandpa when they got married. She was 17 and he was 26. Grandpa died 35 years ago from lung cancer. She adored him.

Gram is in a nursing home for good now and she's not happy about it one bit. Today, she told a nurse she'd give her $500 bucks if she'd bust her outta there and take her back to her retirement apartment. The nurse told her that once she was able to toilet herself she could go back to assisted living. Gram got mad and started crying and screaming at the nurse.

Poor thing. She's knows what's going on but is too weak to do anything about it and too strong to accept it.

God bless her.

Bless her heart. That must be such a horrible feeling.

I love the picture. It is so sweet. You can see their personalities.

I can understand how you must be feeling. Watching our grandparents whither isn't easy, and must be terribly frustrating for them. I am sure that the love of her family helps though.

Oh, Maize. How sad. Thinking of her and all the family. Love, Esther

Getting old sucks.

I'll keep her in my thoughts and hope that she either finds peace where she is or is able to toilet herself soon so she can bust out!
