Call me a Grammie’s girl, but I am crazy about my Grammie. She was the person I hurried toward when my own mother died, and she has always been a constant source of love and comfort to me.

She has been in hospital for over a week now, and last Monday, she broke her pelvis. Apparently, the pain meds have made her loopy, and she thought she could walk.

She wasn’t properly restrained, and she got out of bed, only to fall once more. They have taken her to a larger centre for a CAT scan.

She hates that she doesn’t remember things the way she used to, and I can honour that. I wish I was ready to let her go, but I long to be able to see her just one more time. I was hoping it was when I was scheduled to work in that area, but it sure isn’t looking good now, and I really can’t afford the trip right now.

Pneumonia is a real concern for elderly immoblilized patients. Please reach into your hearts and send a prayer of love to Grammie along with me.

Today’s puzzle is an image of Grammie that I call Tricky Ole Bird.

I love you, Grammie. I hope you are in shape to field your mother’s day calls tomorrow.

And Mom? I’m sending my love to you, and know that you feel it.

Memarie Lane Says:

Brad’s mom is a hospice nurse. She told me that the reason so many older people contract pneumonia after an injury is that we breathe too shallowly, and gradually lose our lung capacity. By the time we are elderly, she said, the average person only has about 30% lung capacity. Ever since she told me that I’ve tried to do some deep breathing whenever I think about it.

I’m still praying (but you already knew that). And I’m sending you hugs and good thoughts. If what Memarie Lane says is true, then maybe it would be good to keep her laughing – that would force her to breathe deeply.

Yer Grammie looks similar to someone I know especially in that startled picture you put up of her. Both you and her are in my prayers and a happy mothers day to the two of you. I salute all the mothers even though the UK mothers have already had theirs.

Oh and 2.56, a few nights ago I dreamed I released 2 cockatiels from the back of a van and they flew off to be free, it was an odd dream all round.

Grammie looks like a neat old broad lady. That’s the first of your puzzles I’ve worked. I thought it might be worthwhile – and it was.
