Prayer Request Update!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to update you all on my Grandpa and THANK YOU for praying!

My Dad called a few minutes ago. They transferred Grandpa to a rehab center today. Dad actually put Grandpa on the phone. First I need to explain that my Grandpa is a man of few words, very few…unless it is about photography or WWII/’The Post’ (American Legion). My Grandfather is just talking up a storm! First he told me they’ve got him locked in prison. Then he just kept talking!

I always tell him I love him when I talk to him. Usually his reply is ‘Yep. Same to you.’ Once before in my entire lifetime do I remember him saying he loved me too with the actual word ‘love.’ Today he said he loved me very much too, and that he loved me from the bottom of his heart. (Are you crying yet because I am!) I know he’s always loved me, he’s just never been one to express it with words like that.

I told him I had people down here praying for him and he said he was very thankful for that. My whole family is very relieved. I talked to my Grandma, Aunt and Dad and I could hear Grandpa in the background the entire time just chatting away. That is so wonderfully un-characteristic of him! My Aunt said that he is able to move his left arm much better and his speech is much better (obviously!) too. He’s tried to get up so they are keeping a good eye on him. He told me he can’t wait to get home. I am so thankful to God right now for taking care of my Grandpa. I know he will help him through the rest of his recovery too.

Thank you for praying!

Sometimes with a stroke, you will see a personality change. I am very happy that your Grandpa is doing great, and is able to express his love for you!

I've missed this about your Grandpa, but i'm so pleased to read the update on him.

Tell him if i could i'd be there like a shot to hear about the war etc... because i could listen to old people like that for ages

I had to laugh at him saying they have him locked up in prison though Bless him.

Oh and Grandpa would love you! I do love his stories. Gram's too. They met and married when they were both serving in the army. He was an x-ray tech and she was the receptionist in the office. She had to be an escort any time he had to x-ray a female patient. They have a lot of good and sad stories about life there too. He was also the commander of the Post they are members at of the American Legion for 2 years.
