My favorite aunt called me today and asked me “Did you get my text message?” I thought for a minute. She had never sent me a text message because, as far as I knew, she didn’t have text messaging. “I don’t know,” I replied, “Let me check.” Sure enough, there it was! The very first text my aunt had ever sent me! I was so excited! She told me that she had gotten new phones for her and both my grandparents. It’s about time! They have had the same phones for sooo long! I’m talking, at the very least, 5-6 years. Maybe longer! The bad thing is, now my grandparents have to learn new phones. (Grandma is 80 & Grandpa is 79!) But I will teach them!
I am going to my grandparents house tomorrow. My Grandma is having surgery on Wednesday to have her hip replacement fixed. She had the first surgery years ago, but recently the rod in her hip has been grinding her bone away. It has been very painful for her. This surgery will help her. I am worried though, because she is 80 years old and a diabetic. Recovery will not be easy. My grandpa does not want to leave her side. He is insisting on staying with her in the hospital. That will be hard on his body, as he is not in the best shape either. So I will be there for a week to help them. I will be their “go-for”. Anything they need, I will get. Plus, I’m hoping my aunt will not have to take as much time off work since I will be there. She does so much for them!
I love my grandparents so much! They are my world! They have done so much for me that there is no way to thank them enough. I am so blessed.
I love my aunt so much too! She is my absolute favorite aunt, if not person, in the whole world! Since she doesn’t have kids, my sister and I are like her kids. She spoils us, but she takes care of us. She is very protective of us! I love her more than words can describe.
