At last!

I'd like to thank each of you who have emailed, messaged or asked how we're all doing.  There is finally good news!

My grandma was re-admitted to the hospital last week.  She was hallucinating.  She was in a really bad place -- at one point she was "crocheting a hat" for her new baby...her first baby....my mom.  But at least she was sort of timely on that one as she probably was making that hat exactly 55 years ago in preparation for my mom's birth (her birthday is shortly before Christmas).

She was a mess for quite a while.  And then she woke up on Saturday...and she was my grandma again.  She's once again fastidious about her appearance.  She is prim and very, very proper.  She is beyond embarrassed that she hasn't been to the salon in three weeks to get her hair done.  She is horrified that the surgery affected the nerves that control bladder functioning and that she has accidents and a bladder that doesn't fully empty without catheterization every few hours.

But she sounds stronger than she has in quite some time -- months...maybe years.  She is ready to come home and get her Christmas shopping done and her house decorated.  If all goes well and they get all the family members living nearby trained to help her put in the catheter two or three times a day, she can come home Wednesday afternoon.

That's fantastic news. I hope she has many many more years to go.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. What a great Christmas present.
