Just wanted to take a quick sec to thank you all so much for the posts, messages and texts :)

Things are going much better then we thought we were going into this morning!!!

Hope this makes sense, so over tired and just cut and paste a text I've sent.

Much better then this morning. They thought my grandfather had a stroke last night and they had him on life support waiting for us all to arrive. The tests came back this morning an they think it may have just been some sort of seizure. We spent the day at the hospital and he started to come around, knew who my grandmother was, and could communicate a bit. We were set to take shifts but my grandmother decided everyone should come back to the house for the night and let him rest.

Thanks again all so much....you have no clue how much it means :)

    That is great news, CC!! I am so happy it was not as bad as they first thought.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    So things are looking up. We all went to the hospital yesturday with plans to go home afterwards. The nurses had him in a reclined chair though, and although his speech was really garbled, he was laughing at the right places during jokes so seemed to know what was going on.

    The Dr says whats going on is normal for after a seizure and that the next 24-48 hrs should show good improvement. His CAT scan came back totally clear.

    My parents and aunt and uncle decided to stay another night to see him today because they are all leaving for DR tomorrow. They tried to cancel, but my Grandmother was hearing none of that :)

    My Mom called this morning and said he was doing better, was getting snippy with the nurses because he couldn't get up and was wanting his glasses so he could watch the news.

    Still a ways to go, but slowly its looking better and 100x better then what we thought we were going into Saturday morning :)

    Thank you all so much for the kind words, thoughts and prayers!
