"G" is for

G is for Grandma. My grandmother is 81. A month ago, she had a massive stroke and a heart attack and was on her kitchen floor all night until my mother found her the next day. She survived. She has almost no movement on the left side of her body, but her mind is intact. She is very strong willed and independent. She made a lot of progress but has a long way to go before she can think about going home again. The fact that she survived the ordeal with only the damage she had is amazing. She has lived alone since my grandfather passed away 13 years ago from a heart attack. She always maintains a garden, keeps her yard clean, and takes walks through the woods. If anyone can get back on her feet, it is her.
