My oldest son Sean who is 18 returned home yesterday from vacation. He brought me back a new ABB shirt from Savannah. He had not seen his Grandmother since the accident. It was a very tough evening. Mom is doing better breathing on her own now. She is trying to talk, but very medicated. Her heart is now our main concern. This is going to be a long road. Sean posted this on his MySpace page. It ripped me.

The Inevitable Truth
Current mood: distraught

"God Send An Angel

Dont Take the Innocent

Stay Strong and Prevail

I pray"

---------------
---------------
---------------
---------------

Grandmother

I've known you long

but You've known me longer

You were always there to take care of me

When no one else was there


...when you knew you didnt have to be...



To see you so healthy

Made the impossible possible.

Taking me to Hanover Park

Still driving a vehicle

at 80 years old


But to see you in this shape

Breaks my heart in two..



You were always so Independent

And now that you're being catered to

In a hospital bed

I know you hate it



Grandmother

I've sat and thought tonight



And I wonder if you can see Heaven


I wonder what it looks like


Can you see the Angels?


Grandmother

You'll never know how much you mean to me



And If I could take all the pain you're receiving onto myself

I'd do it in a heartbeat



Grandma....


I can't bear to see you this way...

it's tearing me apart....

I'm praying for you.



Even though you can't move

And even though words are barely audible


I heard you say "I love you Sean.."



My tears fall for you

And they will fall all night








I love you too grandma.

In our family, we have had two different grandparents move in with us as they became older, and my daughters formed close, loving relationships with each one. Reading Sean's poem, I am reminded of those special relationships between grandchildren and grandparents, and I credit you for encouraging that bond. All too often it does not happen because of distance and busy lives. Keep us posted.

I just got the news a little while ago they are moving Mom out of ICU. Sean really lifted her spirits when he got back home. I again thank you all for the prayers. This is one tough 90 yr. old lady, but I honestly feel the prayers are getting her through this. I honestly don't think I could have survived this type of injury.

Kevin, tell Sean Grandma will be just fine. With love like that going her way, how can she not be?

It reminded me how much I loved my grandma, and how lucky I was to have her until I was 37. Even when she knew her days were numbered, and I went to IN to visit her, she made ME a pie. God, we loved each other so!

Family.....is what life's all about.

You and your family remain in my thoughts and prayers, Kevin! Special healing thoughts going out for your mom and glad to hear that she is improving. Sean's words were very touching - you must be proud of this sensitive son you've raised. I was always very close to my own grandparents and blessed to have them in my life for some time (well into adulthood for my grandmothers) so Sean's words spoke to my heart, too.
