Gramps update

I got to go see my grandfather tonight. I got there a little while after visiting hours had ended, but I got to go up. When I walked into the room, he was sitting on the edge of the bed with Sudoku and a crossword in front of him. And he was listening to Fox News and had a little pad of paper on which he had written "Alan Bradley" and "Black Liberation Theology". I took that as a good sign.
We got to talk for about an hour and he sounded good, looked good -- a little tired by the end, and it seems as though he is on the right track for healing.
Thanks for the prayers. Those of you who know me, know that my grandfather means the world to me, and to the rest of the family. We are very, very grateful for the time we have together with him.

Thank you for the update--I've been checking constantly! I remember back at good old EC when you were first afraid he had less than a year to live . . .and look how he's proved everyone wrong! He's a strong soul, which is no competition for a weak heart. I'm glad to hear that he is doing better, and will continue to pray. I love your grandfather--he's a wonderful man (and your sweet grandmother as well).
