My Grandmother's Visit

With all the craziness of last week, I forgot to post about the beginning of the week, which was actually quite wonderful. I guess it’s actually been two weeks now (yikes, time flies), but my grandmother came for a visit and we went to the ranch for the weekend.

Aside from Grayson having a bad seizure just minutes before she and my dad arrived, we had a great time, and I loved watching my Grammie love on my kids. She is so good with both of them, and I especially loved how tender she was with Grayson, and how much time she spent with him. It’s hard to “play” with Grayson, but she was so patient and just kept right on talking to him and replacing toys that he dropped.

And of course Charlotte loved all the attention she got from her Great Grammie.

Sadly, while she was here, my grandfather broke his hip at the nursing facility back in Michigan where he was staying while my grandmother was here. I was running late Tuesday morning and rushed out the door with the kids, with just a “See you tonight” for my grandmother (she wasn’t supposed to go home until Wednesday). I found out later that morning that she and my dad left to fly back to Michigan to be with my grandfather, and then that afternoon Grayson was in the hospital. So I never got to properly say goodbye.

Grammie, I know you will read this, so I just want to say how wonderful it was to spend time with you. I’m so glad you came to visit (and I’ll always remember our adventure in the woods!). Thank you for being so patient and loving with Grayson and Charlotte. I’m so sorry life is so difficult right now, but just know we love you and Papap so much. Hope to see you again soon!
