Yesterday I got a care pkg. from grandma.She has been worried since my dx, and it makes me worry for her.She is in poor health,and was given less than 6 months over a yr. ago. Somehow she managed to get out, and filled a box full of various hats for me.Mind you this was not an easy task as she lives up north, and its very rural.She is also on oxygen, and tires very easy.I was so touched by how thoughtful she is. I hope to always be as thoughtful .I had previously joked about harley davidson dew rags,rub on tatto's and even got some of those(LOL).Ok, just wanted to share because I thought this was so sweet.
Best wishes

Michelle,

How sweet of your grandmother to do all that for you.  It was probably theurapeutic for her to do something for you.  I know my mom had a hard time sitting back and not doing something for her little girl during this time.  So having something that made her feel a part of your recovery will give her a reason to smile when she thinks of you. 

Hugs to both of you,


Mia

Grandmas are special, mine were and I hope I am to my grandchildren. Grandmas love their grandchildren and will do just about anything to make them happy. Is there some way we could make your grandma happy? Could we send her some cards? Just send her address to my email and I will share it with some others and she will get some cards from us. mkstroup@juno.com Hugs MK

I would love to send a card to grandma. We grandmas have to stick together.

I never had a grandfather, they were gone far before I came along. Both of my grandmothers died the year I was 10 and since we lived so far away, it wasn't all that often I got to see them.

I'm spending a lot of time trying to be sure that my grandchildren will remember me. You're going to have to post some pictures of grandma's goodie box.

Hugs, Jo-Ann

How wonderful! My best friend did that for me when I had chemo. She sent me plane tickets to fly from my home in Los Angeles to hers in Massachusetts for Christmas. When she called to tell me I was coming, I began to cry and said I couldn't go because I didn't have any hair. A week later a box arrived full of warm hats.

I agree with Jo-Ann. We grandmas need to stick together. I learned from the best grandmother and friend a person can have. I've been blessed with other friends, too, particularly from this board. Grandmas are all about making the world a nicer place.

L&H,
Rita

What a wonderful, loving grandmother you have! When my girls were young, they had 4 greatgrandmothers, 2 great grandfathers, 2 grandmothers and 1 grandfather living. And they were fortunate enough to have all of them involved in their lives. They were wonderful, loving, Christian women. I watched them do things w/ my dd's that they never would have done w/ me or my cousins (dropping their false teeth to make the girls laugh). I am finding myself doing things w/ my grandchildren that I would never have done w/ my dds! I would love to send your grandmother a card. I think it is a wonderful idea.

Here's to all of the grandmas and nanas among us now and to all of those who will be in the future. It's truly a special grandma you have there. I would love to send her a card. Can we email you privately for her address? L&H's, Luci

Count this grandmom in. I e mailed you for her addy. This is one grandmother that deserves a special card shower. I am so glad you have her. I am having a problem. I copied and pasted your e mail and it keeps coming back. I have no idea what the problem is. Knowing me I am sure its my fault. I tried it two times. Could you check it and make sure its me? Thanks so much. L&H Joyce

What a great idea. My grandparents were the most influential people in my life. They always made me feel so loved. After I was diagnosed with cancer, I was going through a box and found an old get well card from them that they had sent about 20 years ago. I keep it up in my bedroom. I think of it as a get well card from Heaven. Di

What a sweet thing for her to do for you!! I can just hear how touched you were. We never told my only surviving grandmother when I was diagnosed in April 1996. She died just 2 months later at age 93 and never had to fret about my health. I think we made the right decision. Treasure your grandmother. Sit down with her and get her to talk about her childhood, how she met her husband and their courting... those stories are just so special to save. Hugs, Lauri

Lauri, you are so right. My last living grandmother died at age 98, 2 months before her namesake was born. We video taped her telling stories about her childhood, her marriage to my grandfather (an arranged marriage) my father's childhood, etc. She also told us her fav recipes, how to plant a garden and flowers. My eldest granddaughter, Emma, is her namesake and it is like living w/ my grandmother. She loves to listen to the tapes and actually see what a wonderful, beautiful person she was named after. I would suggest this to anyone that has a grandparent living.
 
Hugs..Deb
