As you all probably know from reading my moms blog my Grandpa is very sick with Liver Cancer. Well I talked to my mom this morning and grandpa is declining really fast and I am asking for your prayers and my mom will probably ask for them to. She is probably going to put him in the hospital sometime soon. My Grandpa is an AMAZING man. He was in the service but I don't know a lot about him during that time of his life. What I do know about him is he is my Grandpa and I love him dearly. When I was young if I got sick my mom would take me over to Grandma and Grandpas house and my grandma was a germaphobe you might say so she woud put sheets covering the couch and would lay a blanket on the couch for me to cover up with and a pillow to lay my head on. She would turn on cartoons for me and on the couch i would stay unless i had to go to the bathroom and then she would follow me arrownd with the lysol can lol. My Grandpa knew I hated staying on the couch so he would come in and watch TV. That time with Grandpa was really special to me and I will always cherrish that time we had together. Another memory I have at thier house is graham crackers and milk. This i think is my favorite. My grandparents were not the type of people to sit or let anyone else sit on their counters but I would go over there and grandpa would get me a glass of milk and a plate with Graham crackers and he would sit me up on the counter and let me eat my graham crackers and milk up on the counter. I was the only person ever allowed to do this not even my sister and brother were allowed to so i felt like the most special person in the world. My grandparents watched my son travis for quite a few months after I went back to school and Grandpa would take travis and show him off to EVERYONE. I would come to pick him up from thier house and there was my son laying on a blanket it the middle of the table with his great grandparent sitting on either side of him like he was a center piece. I know travis doesn't know this but I think that was some of my grandparents favorite times, just sitting and watching him sleep and also showing him off of course. Well those are just a few out of many memories i have of my grandparents. Please pray for him and pray that god is merciful to him. We don't want to lose him but we all know he is hurting and he wants to be with his wife again. I wish i had a picture but I don't have one at the moment. I'm sure you have seen them on my moms page though. Thank you all.
