So today we celebratedmy Grandma’s 82nd birthday! Here is her story…
So June 8, 2004 she had a stroke in the middle of the night. She was rushed to the ER and the doctors told us she was not going to make it through the weekend, and if she survived, that she would be in a vegetated state the rest of her life.
They almost had my grandpa convinced to take her off life support, but with the power of prayer, she came through. She is a fighter and came out of the coma.
The stroke affected the part of her brain that controls her speech (so she cannot talk except the word “wee” and the occasional “yeah” and “oh”) and she is paralyzed on her right side.
So yeah,9 years ago in 2004 they said she would not make it past the weekend (not even making it to next birthday only 5 days away). But she made it, and here she is tonight celebrating her 82nd birthday!
She really is a miracle. That lady is a fighter! She really is my inspiration and love her so much. I would not be the woman I am today if it weren’t for this woman. Happy Birthday Grandma, I love you!
