Comments: hi

May the force be with you, Joshilyn. My paternal grandmother turned 92 this year and when the phone rings, it turns my knees to jelly.

Ditto, Elena, except it was my paternal grandfather who turned 92! And he's my last left. Both of my grandmothers died last year (my other grandfather was when I was in high school), so I'm with you, thinking about's rough. Even if they're super-old and viperous.

I know exactly how you feel. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Keep us posted.

Oh, Joshilyn, I'll be thinking of you. My maternal grandmother will be 94 at the end of this week and I dread the day.

Posted by Aimee at November 29, 2006 10:23 AM

(((((Joss))))), you're in our prayers.
Be safe, and know that we are thinking of you and sending happy thoughts your way. Viperous or not, last lefts are hard to lose. Mine is younger, but still I dread the ringing of the phone.
Love to you and your fam,

Sending warm thoughts. I only started with two grandparents, and my grandmother, my last left, just turned 91. Her sister died in September. She is the last left of her whole immediate family, which sounds so lonely to me, that everyone who watched her grow up is gone. She is my kids' nonna, and I hate the thought of losing her. I feel like I've only gotten to really know her in the past ten years.
more warm thoughts headed your way...

You're on my mind, Tulip. (I haven't wanted to call, not knowing when would be a good time... but I'm here if you need to blow off some steam.)

As Aimee mentioned, our Mema is turning 94 next week, and though she's been slipping away bit by bit over the years the thought of losing her is unbearable. I'll be thinking of you and your family-

Posted by Laura at November 29, 2006 8:09 PM

You and your family are in my prayers, Joss. XO

Posted by Martha O'Connor at November 29, 2006 9:15 PM

Hugs sent. And an invisible but powerful anti-overwhelmed coping mist. Inhale, 3X, slowly and deeply as needed.

Joss, hang in there! My last left is 97 (although if you ask her she'll say 96, and if you correct her she'll ask you "who says!?!") and about a month ago I was thinking about what I should say at her memorial. But she rallied and we got her back home (she lives in a Granny flat built on to my parent's house) just in time for Thanksgiving. So you never can tell what may happen. Either way I'm sending e-hugs and strength of whatever kind is required.

Take care. I'm single Momming it too for a week. But not dealing with illness at the same time.

Thinking of you.

Dear Joshilyn, I am sorry my prayers are days late to this post; but, I lost my whole blog when I converted to Beta; and been on a posting frenzy to rebuild..

please derive a small comfort in knowing; many are with you in thought and spirit. May I offer this blessing of Healing to you and your Grandmother--every girls treasured presence!!

Blessing of Healing
"May the Spirit of Wholeness be with you awakening healing power within. May the Spirit of Harmony restore rhythms of body, mind and spirit. May Love touch you, strengthen you and give you peace."

Blessing: Pat Bergen CSJ

with loving kindness,

I can't seem to comment on any other entry. Am I losing it?
