Geez...thats rough on you I know,my grandma is 90 and has always been a very active woman(she still drives! ) but in the last year she has become very frail.Doesn't seem possible to me.I'm glad she is doing better,she probably is still recovering from all the poison that was in her system from the impaction.Takes a few days to get back to 'normal'.Just keep bringing that coffee!
Kelly, that is really tough. It sounds like tootie is a wonderful person. I wish I could think of something comforting to say. My great grandmother died 20 years ago and I still am affected by the good influence she was on my life. I imagine she is up in heaven still praying for me. I hope that your grandma lives an even longer and healthy life.
Kelly, you and Grandma Toots are in my thoughts and prayers!
She sounds like such a wonderful lady-
Like everyone has said spend as much time as possible with her and let her tell stories of her life. I did geriatric nursing for years and I have such a soft spot for the elderly. I have heard many, many stories. I had a patient that would tell me stories about his travels and no less in a covered wagon!
We are with you through this-
I am keeping you & Grandma Toots in my prayers...I am so glad that you are back home and have been able to see her and spend time with her. You are lucky to have such a wonderful lady as a part of your family. And she is lucky to have a wonderful granddaughter such as yourself!
Love and hugs,
Aww Kelly, I know what your going through is really hard. At least Toots had a good long life. 97 is pretty incredible. She's very blessed to have a family that loves her so dearly. I've lost many very loved relatives and the one thing that's kept me going during tough times is knowing that they are always there with me. I'll keep you, Toots and your family in my thoughts.
Take care & warm hugs,
So sorry to hear about your grandma Kelly- and I'm happy you moved back and were able to spend some time with her. What a cute story about how she got her nick name!
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family-
Kelly, I'm so sorry for your loss. I was glad that she went peacefully, that's how it should be, IMHO. When my MIL passed away, each of her children were w/ her for the visiting hrs, shortly after everyone left, she passed away. As if she didn't want us to be there to witnesses her passing. The nurse came in when the monitor went off, the nurse opened the window to let her soul fly 'free'. I thought that was a very sweet way to let her go.
I will continue to keep all of you in my prayers.
God bless. Alice.
