Its been a while

I just havent been in the mood to write anything. Not that I am in much better of a mood or spirits, it just felt like the time to write.

My grandfather is not doing well at all. He has been staying with my parents since last week. He had been in a rehabilitation type of place to try to get his strength back. The place sucked. The staff were few and far between, the place wasnt very pleasing to the eye and he just wasnt happy being there. My mom and dad brought him to there house thinking he would be better off and that we could rotate keeping an eye on him.

I stayed with him Saturday and he slept the majority of the day. About the only time he woke up was when his older sister, her daughter and a friend of my grandpa's came to visit. It was the first time in 11 years that I had seen my great aunt Helen and even longer than that since I saw her daughter. Kinda sad that it takes my grandpa dying to see some of the family.

Sunday morning grandpa fell in the bathroom and it was ll my dad and brother could do to get him up off the floor. He's exteremly week from not eating or drinking. Yesterday apparently he started complaining about not being able to breath so my dad called 911. They said he was severly dehydrated and his O2 level was low so they took him to the hospital. I havent talked to my dad today to see what is going on. My mom comes home today so I know she will go see him once she gets in.

Thats about it for now, ill try to write something more often

Fort hose who are reading, thanks for reading!

I was tagged by Kris.

Here goes:
1. Due to my left eye being lazy as a kid, my head tilts slighty when watching t.v.

2. My left thumb is about 1/4 shorter than my right due to the growth plate being broken at age 14

3. My sense of smell is terrible ( maybe thats why I got to change so many diapers )

4. It took me two tries to pass the parallel parking portion of my driver license test.

5. Ive never been one to keep up with the current fashions

6. Purple is my favorite color.

7. The sound of emory boards is like fingernails on a chalk board to me

8. I was very shy around girls until I was in my early twenties

9. My wife is a much better cook than I am

10. When drinking, I love to sing ( thats the only way youll get me to sing =) )
