My Grandpa

I haven't had much time to write on here lately because we have had lot going on here.

My grandpa has been in and out of the hospital now for about 2 months. Sometimes are more serious than others, but i guess we never knew how serious. The doctors just informed us on Sunday that he is now in the final stages of emphysema. We have all known that he was sick but it's just hard to hear someone tell you that he may only have up to 2 more weeks. My grandpa smoked for about 40 years and your body can only take so much. But inspite of everything he is still himself. Singing to the nurses, making jokes, everything he normally does.

He looks very good on most days. I took the kids to the hospital to see him on sunday, he kept asking me when i was gonna bring them in. I just pray that he'll make it through this and that he has more time than the doctor are telling us, but my grandpa says that he's not afraid because he knows the good lord will be waiting for him when it's his time.
