Today is my Grandma's 84th Birthday.

She has been my champion and my friend my entire life. When no one - not my parents, my peers or my teachers understood me - she was there. She didn't pretend to understand me, she just loved me and she'd bake that extra special spice cake that I loved, just for me.

When my son was born it was as if she got a second life. She was young again. She is his favorite grandma. They are fast friends.

My gram is 84. . . . today. And yesterday she was admitted to the hospital with acute abdominal pains. She is 84 and when you are 84 and admitted to the hospital, no matter how healthy you were, you change. They don't know what is wrong but she hasn't had anything to eat or drink in about 4 days. It is likely a bowel obstruction or a bowel disease. . . . today is her birthday.

I've already thrown my weight around at the hospital as they've not kept her informed. They have no idea who they are dealing with. I know exactly how and when to throw around my weight ;)

So, think good thoughts. I love you Gramma. Happy Birthday.

Here she is with the Boy.

All praise and glory are yours, Lord our God.
For you have called us to serve you and one another in love.
Bless our sick today so that they may bear their illness in union with Jesus' sufferings and restore them quickly to health.
Bless those who have grown old in your service
and give them courage and strength in their faith.
Lead us all to eternal glory.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Happy Birthday and healing wishes to your Grandmother and Little Man's bestest buddy. I hope they come up with some good information very soon and that you continue to be her advocate. They may not know who they're dealing with, but they will very soon.

Prayers said.

I echo what everyone else has said. If she has your fighting spirit, no doubt she'll be fine. God help the person you have to give a hospital smackdown to. You should give them your URL to some of your pissed off sounding posts, and let it serve as a warning that you'll dish 'em a little bit 'o dat if they f**k with the wrong person. Just saying, that's what I would do. Get better, Gramma!
