Update on Grandpa

Well, as of yesterday, Grandpa is still in the hospital.  He’s had ups and downs.  I got to talk with him yesterday over the phone.  He didn’t talk but mom told me he was grinning and recognized me.  Judah sent him a painting last week that they’ve had in his room.

His feeding tube is still doing not how they would like.  And he’s having trouble eating (who wouldn’t with trying to eat hospital food for over a month).  Mom says he’s got a “palsy” shake in his hand which isn’t fun.  I told her it was his hand wanting to play guitar.

They did mention the possibility of moving him to a nursing home.  Nursing homes are not fun.  For the past 25 years I remember every weekend Grandpa going to the nursing home and playing “old time fiddler” music for the people in the nursing home.  I wish I could go play for him now.  I’m sure it would make  his day.

Thank you all who have been praying and please keep it up.  Hopefully he will be able to recover and come home.  And hopefully Grandma will be able to get some rest as well.  She has been there every day by his side.
