had her knee surgery today. It went well. Praise God!!
She did not want anyone to stay with her tonight. I was so tired, I couldn't but one of my sisters planned to do so. Another sister will be at the hospital with her tomorrow. I need to go buy her some new jammies and undies before Olivia and I go down and check in on her. When they weighed her today, she had lost 24 pounds in the past two months. She just has not been able to eat. We have had to coax her into eating for the past two weeks.
God, I pray your place your healing hands on her today and give her strength and health for years to come.
Including her ten surviving children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, to whom she is GG, she has over 100 descendants, so there were many prayers being uttered in her behalf over the course of the past two months that she has been ill.
Speaking of being GG, I have to tell you a little story, coming from the prospective of a four year old.
I have told you before that I care for my granddaughter Olivia. I have taken care of her since she was six weeks old and her mother returned to work after her birth. She knows she is my whole reason for waking up in the morning and the delight of my heart. So, with my mother being so ill and me needing to spend so much time with her, Olivia has had to go to daycare. She hates it. Nancy doesn't even lay down with her when it is nap time. Can you believe it?
On Monday as Angela was dropping her off at the day care she was crying and resisting going in. As she struggled with her, Angela heard her say, "GG is just taking to long to die."
I plan to take her to the hospital with me tomorrow so she can see GG is getting better and she is not going to die, and that she and Gramma will be spending our days together once again. Soon.
