ZenFo G'maw Update...

Okay, folks...offline for a while. For real, this time.

Nuh-uh, you say. Ya-huh, I say...

Early flight tomorrow to a land with little Internet access, much less wireless access. Plus, I may be building an ADA-compliant wheelchair ramp...not sure. Won't leave much time for blogging, but I know my grandmother is going to insist I go out and have fun.

Quick update:

The Zenfo Dad is in Va. now. She's doing well, given the circumstances. Still not sure if G'maw will be able to walk again, but...she's one tough lady.

How many women in their 80s go dancing and have 70 year-olds chasing them around anyway?

Seriously. My hands are shaking. I haven't been able to sleep well. I'm nervous as hell.

My grandmother pretty much raised me. I'm actually pissed at myself for not being able to get out earlier. I know she wouldn't want me to get fired, but still...

Anyway, she's doing as well as can be expected. Dad says she's conscious and able to crack jokes. Won't be running any marathons for a few months, but she's in good spirits.

Thanks everybody for your kind thoughts!

Here's to much healing to your grandma! I am sure she will amaze you all if she is a toughie... plus she sounds like she has a great personality... my grandma is normally rotten and she pulled through great and is back to her warring ways... so yours will probably astound you all!

Sending much lovin' and healin' thoughts your way!

best wishes to your grandma, yourself and your family. grandma's can be tough old birds, if they have the will, little can stop them. She sounds like a great lady, so don't get too jealous if her room is all choked up with flowers and get-well cards.

Hope she gets better. Seeing you will probably speed the healing process :) My grandmother had basically raised me as well, so I understand the relationship quite well.
