News: Papa Don’t Preach and other things

Hi, everyone! We are still on schedule with a posting of PDP next week. I have another 6 chapters written and ready to post, so I shouldn’t fall behind if the family stuff continues.

Although, hopefully we will be in much better shape in a few days, because my feisty little Grandma was actually sitting up eating when I got there to see her today. So, under the circumstances, she is doing AMAZING. We snapped a pic of her yesterday to show my aunt, since she lives in another state and can’t be here, but then we decided it would be better NOT to show her. Grandma seriously looks like she was in the boxing ring. She kept trying to open that lil’ swollen eye today, not remembering what happened or why she was in the hospital. Sigh. Hopefully this stuff will pass once she is off the morphine and the concussion passes.

Drs still do not think we need cranial surgery. She is still bleeding around her brain, but it is a very small amount and her brain swelling is also pretty minimal. So, they are imaging her head like it’s going out of style, it’s nice to know they are so on top of it.

One really sad, non-related family thing…yesterday there were a handful of Highway Patrol officers in the trauma ICU. No big, figured a criminal got hurt or something. Today, a TON more. Like a lot. We found out that one of their men was party of a search and rescue of a lost hiker…and the officer was hit with the chopper blade. Ugh, it makes me so sad!! He is still alive but in bad shape, I don’t know anything else since it’s all PHI (personal health information). Anyways, while you all are sending good vibes to my steel headed granny, remember Officer Rescue, because I bet he has some family hurting right now. XOXO

Edited to add: Rumor through the grapevine is this poor man was scalped by the blade. It sounds pretty bad…really makes you put everything else into perspective, huh?
