Hello and welcome back guys!
As many of you know, my posting schedule is set for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. And last week I didn’t post on Wednesday or Friday. And there is a good reason for that.
Following my divorce and moving, I decided it was best to move back in with my parents until things settled down and because quite frankly, I don’t want to live alone. Well my grandmother lives with my parents as well in her own little apartment suite connected to the house. She’s a wonderful lady and is almost 86 and has been super independent and didn’t really need us. Well, sometime Tuesday night she had a major, major stroke. We found her Wednesday morning. It turned my world upside down.
My grandmother is my last living grandparent and I have be rather close to her and her late husband (my grandfather). I took this rather hard. We didn’t know what to expect since we had lots of doctors telling us different things and that we would have a better idea the following day. But one of the doctors basically told us to expect her to be a vegetable and not to make it. That killed me.
The next day, my grandma was doing a lot better. And she’s been slowly but surely making progress every single day. She may have her hard times and darker moments but she’s a miracle.
Over the weekend we were able to move her in to a rehabilitation hospital to help her progress even further. The fact that she has been able to move so quickly and that she is almost 86 is just astounding. There has been a lot of back and forth in which how she’s really doing and if she will be able to come home.
It’s been really hard on my entire family. Very emotionally draining and I have been pretty much out of it since it has happened. Thankfully I have wonderful people surrounding me, especially Mathew, to help get me through this. There are positives in this and that’s all I want to hold on to.
I’m taking things day by day at this point and that’s all I really am able to do. So please bear with me through this difficult time and please pray, send positive thoughts and strength, as well as hope for my grandmother, my family and myself.
