Sunday…movin’ on to Grandpa’s

Most of you know that Richards dad is not in the best of health.  He and Grandma M are in some really tough times financially (as a lot of Floridians are) but you don’t really grasp how tough till you walk in to the EMPTY home..not even a home anymore just an empty building….Grandpa sitting in a bed room on a special chair, walker next to him watching television ALL DAY LONG while Grandma M works two jobs just to pay for her Health Insurance and food and some small bills. He is provided VA care…which is not the greatest but it is what it is.

It was hard to see and hard on the boys…nothing and I mean nothing for them to do…I entertained them best I could…wanted them to have time with Nick but really they were bored…at 7 Spencer gets what is happening..Griffin is not so sure…doesn’t know how to ask what he is thinking…he asks things and doesn’t understand.

They ran around outside and played with the one toy that was left by one of their cousins and watch a little of the Olympics with me and that was it.  Richard was able to watch the Cubs game with his dad and have a little conversation…nothing earth shattering but it was time together…don’t know if that will ever happen again. Late we headed out to go back to my moms place which is about 2.5 hours from Nicks. It was a quiet ride…very quiet…
