I went to see my grandmother in the hospital yesterday; she’s still in the ICU, recovering from the surgery, and Dad says she’s mostly been out of it until just today.
She seemed glad to see me, and immediately starting chatting up a storm. We discussed all the tubes and gadgets she was hooked up to, the comings and goings of my various cousins who had also been in to see her, and other general topics.
At one point a nurse came in to check on her, and remarked “You just had surgery on your throat, and all you want to do is talk?”
Grandma said, “I got behind. I need to catch up on my talking.”
