the latest-

not great. My granny has had a build up of narcotic in her system and Sunday evening she lost her reality. She has brief moments of clarity, but for the most part isn't real sure who I am. I spent the night with her Sunday night and she talked the whole night. Some of it connected into sentences, most of it did not. My grandfather knows this is her normal reaction and we are hopeful as the medicine leaves her body her brain will get strong again.

My cousin and I said we wanted to do some research into mental illness. It seems like a cruel disease, but I guess it is mainly cruel to those around the ill person. After her spring episode my granny didn't really remember all the weird things she said. Because I know this is her brain on drugs I don't take it personally when she is mean to me.

Her hip is healing well and her strength is returning. That is a good thing.

Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. I am confident that again she and we will again get thru this. She is one strong woman!

I am sorry! Mental illness is very hard, but I agree mainly on those close to them. We are still praying for your family. Thanks for the update!

Thank you for the upadate! I have been thinking about you and how she was doing.

I know it is hard. I watched my grandmother go through something like this and it is just so horrible.

You will be in my prayers!
