Update time: Kim went to see Grandpa 2 days ago. He is doing good. He has decided that he likes it at the VA rehab where he is. He said the food is good, and Kim says that he was very "with it" which is something I haven't seen since he broke his hip. So that is good. He is continuing to make progress, and will likely be coming back here before terribly long. I got a secondary infection so I still haven't been up to see him . My mom suffered her first angina attack this week. My mom (who has sworn that she will never go to the ER again) INSISTED that dad take her to the ER! It causes a lot of pain. My grandmother suffered many times with angina before her heart finally took her. Brigham could explain what causes it better than me. I just know that it isn't fun and can be dangerous. Not that anyone is worried about the danger of it taking her life (since that is also what she wants and needs to have quality of life again). I just wish it wasn't so blasted hard to get out of this life for some folks! I really wonder what you have to do to be able to have a heart attack and just get it over with all at once! Kim and I are becoming more and more determined that we DON'T want to get old!

It's a shame you know....that most of our blog entries have to be dealing with age and sickness.
