Grandpa’s Great Escape

Here are a few pictures of my grandpa that I was talking about the other week that had the brain bleed. Even when he was in the ICU he wanted nothing more than to come home, although he never lost his sense of humor. Joking (I think?? lol) about ways to get out of there, stories of the crazy people at the hospital and how they wouldn’t leave him alone, and asking for the check at the end of his meal so he could tip the waitress and finally leave this restaurant that he was in. I am very lucky to still have all four of my grandparents, but he is the oldest of the four. Β He will beΒ 93 next January! I am happy to say he is doing well, and is getting better everyday. Β πŸ™‚

Grandpa’s first evening back at home from the hospital! He was VERY happy to be back home if you couldn’t already tell from his smile. πŸ™‚

This is his souvenir from the hospital. Grandma and Grandpa were joking that it looked like two eyebrows and a tiny nose. Grandpa was also joking that he was already for Halloween as Frankenstein. He has already gotten his staples out though, so he will have to find something else to be this Halloween. πŸ˜‰

This is an older one of him, but one of my favorites that I’ll cherish forever. Here he is celebrating his 90th birthday a few days early back in December of 2009. You can tell by the look on his face that this roller coaster is a piece of cake for him. He’s ready to go on California Sceamin’ next. πŸ˜‰

Who knows how much longer I will have my grandparents for, so I hope I can make the best of the time I have left with them. What are some of your favorite memories with your grandparents that you will treasure forever?

  1. OUCH!! Well, glad he is okay! I have a great aunt who is 97 and she JUST now went into a nursing home because she simply can not walk. I wish you all well.
