I’ll tell you a sad story tumblr. Just days after my Grandmother was released from the hospital a few weeks back, she took an unfortunate and almost uncanny fall from her front porch. Our sigh of relief for her improving condition came crashing down with that fall. My beautiful, strong Grandmother suffered a traumatic brain injury and as her brain swelled we begin to lose her. She lived, and is living and doing well physically, for a woman of 87. But my heart is broken, her brain will never be the same. In the past 3 weeks we have endured such a roller coaster with regards to her condition that I’ve barely had time to understand, that she’s probably never coming back. Not the way I knew her, not the person who helped to mold me, to love me EXACLTY as I was and am in every single point of my life. She has begun to show some promising signs after a week of an extremely concerning low. For the first time in my existence, she looked into my eyes, and I knew, she didn’t know me. Nothing has ever scared me and broken me so much. Thanks to God and a wonderful rehab staff who investigated and discovered her low sodium, that seems to have subsided and on my Mom’s birthday, yesterday evening, she knew us all, and although she was a bit 13ish, she made us all laugh so loud the nurses came to close the door. Most of this is irrelevant to the world of tumblr, but the fact is that I just needed to write it out. And for everyone who has prayed for and sent good vibes to her during her last hospital stay, I ask you to do it again. You are all wonderful.I’m fairly sure most people believe this of their Grandmother’s, but this one, she is golden. She’s the kind of human you meet once in your life and never again.
It’s Friday, GO!
