well i like that!!
...meaning I'm free that night.
Granny is actually doing well. I talked to my mom today and she said that Granny is tired of the hospital food, but she could "probably eat some biscuits and gravy from Cracker Barrel." LOL!
On a sad and very ironic note, a friend of hers that we all grew up with died last night. About 9 months ago he was in a horrible car accident after church and was in a coma, which he came out of in April. Last night he was driving his family home from a soccer game while eating a burrito from Taco Bell, on which he choked to death. He was 42, I believe.
His older sister, one of my mother's best friends, suffered from breast cancer for 10 years and died in 2000. Their parents are still alive and are completely and understandably devastated. The matriarch recently overcame breast cancer of her own and the patriarch suffered a pretty severe stroke a couple of years ago.
I was watching a documentary of the Kennedy family on PBS today and thought about how it seemed their family was marked or cursed. Now I'm starting to think my mom's friend's family might be another Kennedy clan.
