Grandmother fallout, part 1.
Current Mood: good good
VICTOR: You are victor!
1400-years-old, he is the supreme Vampire overlord
who has been sleeping to restore his power.
Selene trusts him as she trusts no one else and
daringly wakens him when no one else believes
her discovery of the Lycan plot to destroy the
Vampires. Viktor is tall, powerful, haughty, and
ostentatious. And ruthless. He had his own
daughter, Sonja, executed when it was
discovered she was secretly involved with a
lycan leader. Many have elevated him to
celebrity status. Many others wish him dead.
But Viktor has his own secrets and a dark side
no other Vampire has ever known ... he may have
been the one who began the ancient battle
between Lycans and Vampires.

"My mother wants me to get married. She'll clip out the wedding announcements from the newspaper, especially those that have my old high school friends; send me it in the mail with a little note: Just thinking about you. So occasionally I'll send her a brochure on a nursing home, maybe an obituary, or a Newsweek article on the Mendez Brothers..."

http://www.themorningnews.org/archives/how_to/the_nonexpert_ikea.phpmelydia posted this in her blog. Funny!

For the Fort Wayne'ers, for today (Friday) we (I and Bri) won't be around. I got tickets to the Komet's game and I don't feel like wasting them. ;) It's been a while since I've been to a rl life hockey game. Sorry.

As for my grandmother: Thank you all for the words. Is very kind.

I went and saw her in the hospital after being confused momentarily why my grandmother would be in the speech disorder section of the hospital. I can see the connections, but it was still kinda weird. Apparently a stroke is a speech impediment? My grandfather was overly grateful I dropped in. More on him later. My grandmother was trying very hard to not be cranky and accepting the nurses and the people fluttering around her as best as she could. Her room-mate across the curtain had a habit of making bodily gurgly noises that were offending her, but she even managed to not do anything more than stare balefully across the curtain. I guess that would all be of more interest if you knew my grandmother. :) She's in fairly good condition, though she was tired, even if she wasn't trying to show it. I asked her if she was tired, and her response was: "Why? All I've done all day is lie in bed. What do I have to be tired about?" as if I'd asked her, 'Do you think the sky is blue?' She was able to move, she spoke fine, etc. No results back yet from the MRI's...after about an hour I left, after learning my grandmother wanted the bouquet of flowers my mom and I had gotten her for the first hospital visit back in her room. So I told my grandfather to remember, but I know he wouldn't. However I think between me telling my mom and aunt we'll be okay. Oh, and g'ma liked the cross and said she had a chain for it. Huzzah.

Poor grandpa. He's so worried for her and so trying to not let it show. He repeated himself, the same stuff, over and over...even more so than normal for him. He needs as much encouragement as my grandmother does, I think. Funny enough, he's the weaker of the two, when it comes to things like that. It made me realize that without grandma, I don't think grandpa would stick around very long. He loves her too much to stay away from her. It was funny, the chaplain came in, just making rounds, introduced himself...asked my grandparents how long they'd known each other, and my grandfather replies, 'We've been married 56 years.' which seems to impress the chaplain who smiles and says, 'That's the way love should be.' to which my grandmother chimes in, 'And I still am crazy about him. So if you see him looking at any other ladies, whack 'em for me.' My grandpa: "That's why I'm in here!" So cute.

So now we just wait and find out whatever it is there is to know.

I was going to use this space to talk about family dynamics and talk about how neat it was to go home and spend some time with my cousins and aunts, but really there isn't much to say except that I got drafted into picking up my mom from work for yesterday and today, and that I'm going to try and make it to my youngest cousins (Joey, for those paying attention) birthday party at Laser-X on Saturday. I feel no shame in gunning down those younger than me with lasers, and he all but begged me. :)

So. If I'm awake, go see Elektra. If not, then wake up. Then go pick up mom. Then goto hockey game. Then come home. Stay up as late as possible? Goto birthday party, tire myself out. Goto work for 12 hours.

Oh boy. Something's gotta give.

What I do know of strokes is they can damage sections of the brain, and a common result of one is damage to the speach/language parts.

*hugs again* Have fun at the hockey game.

The clot the blocks the artery (causing the stroke) kills whatever brain tissue that artery feeds into. That tissue death can result in problems with movement or language or other things, depending on what part of the brain was affected. Many stroke victims have difficulty with language - one of David's aunts has a vocabulary of about four words she can say (she had a stroke about two years ago, I think). The rest of the words are 'locked up' in her head, but she can't access them to speak them.

Your grandmother sounds to be doing fairly well, and I hope her recovery is quick and complete (at least as complete as these things can be).

Your grandparents are cute. I'm glad they have one another and you. *hugs*

You have all of us here....but you know that already. We're all rooting for your family.

Dude...you're worse than I am when it comes to staying up all the time. I haven't pulled hours like that since I was working graves and da man was traveling back and forth to portland. I got sick a lot because of it too.

I'm just now catching up with everyone's posts and found this about your grandmother. I'm so sorry. I wish you'd have left me a message or something to let me know what was going on, but I'm sure you figured I'd have read these by now.

take care of yourself and I'm glad she's doing well. She's like you and she's too tough for much to get her down for long.
