A trip to the "pretty shop"...

It's been (as Shauntice would say) a minute since I updated [via blog] on Grandmama, and yesterday was a fairly eventful day...so I thought to make a quick post. For the first time in months - I'd have to look at my calendar to see how long - she left the nursing home to have her done by Darlene...who, until Grandmama became too ill, had been doing her hair for 20-something years. So...[up] there she is...tresses freshly cut and permed. The day took it's toll on them both (Grandmama and Granddaddy); I have a feeling it will take a few days to recover.

Sadly, Grandmama's roommate passed away this week. Saying it hits "close to home" is an understatement; it pings within the walls of the same room.

Yesterday, Granddaddy and the NHC staff moved Grandmama over to the other side of the room. She's now near the window and has a bit more room & wall space. She's under the impression she's in a new room altogether; last night, I found it best not to argue. No real news on the health front for her... The things that have been issues, continue to be issues.

Granddaddy had surgery on his foot last Thursday (one week ago yesterday). He's recovering well and riding Grandmama's motorized wheelchair much of the time. I think that about does it for the G'rents!

I'm so glad you updated, even though you sent out an email. I love to read your blog. I had no idea that was why grandmama had a room to her own now. Sad...
But tell her that I LOVE her blankie! It look so warm!!! I love you and hope that we can have a phone date soon.
miss you dearly and love you with all of me!

Thanks, love! I didn't feel comfortable posting the videos here, which is partially why there was a separate e-mail... Miss you madly and love you with all of me too (I love that - can I use it too?!).

Yeah! Grandma's hair looks great. It's worth a few days recovery I'm sure.
