I love you Grandma
Thursday, October 23, 2008
It has been tough these last couple of weeks. I tend to eat when I am bored and to comfort myself. I would love to break the habit, so here I sit typing blogs at 11pm so I dont eat junk food. Whatever works, right! I am losing my grandma to the fate of old age. Theresa is 95 and has been dealing with Alzheimer's for 4 yrs now. She has always been a tough lil lady. I still picture her roasting bell peppers and marinating them for me, before I come to visit in California. When us kids had a cold, or just wanted it. . .she made us Grandma Romero soup which just consisted of Angel hair pasta and chicken broth, but her's was always the best! Now I got the dreaded phone call from my Dad that her time is near, and I am sure my Grandpa is waiting for her. Honestly he has been waiting for about 15 years now, so I am sure he is patient. She has slipped in to a coma and it is not good. My heart goes out to my Dad, as he has been the one to take care of her, and goes and visits her every day. It must be tough since she acts like he is a stranger. When I see him, I am going to give him the great big hug he deserves! I wish I lived closer. I love you Grandma with all my heart, and always will!
