I got an email today saying that my grandad (Gramps) is in hospital in England. He's not been too well this past month with a cold and then a secondary infection, and this morning he fainted so they have him in hospital to run some tests on his heart and other things. Gramps is 95 years old (96 next week!).

I have a very special relationship with Gramps; we write to each other via "snail mail" regularly. He is one of the sweetest people you could ever meet - I don't ever remember him having a mean thing to say to or about anyone. As some of you know, my dad (Gramps' son) died over 20 years ago; I think this is part of what makes our connection so valuable to me. Hopefully tomorrow will bring some good news from back home.

Toni, I hope your grandpa is well soon. I know how hard it must be on you having someone so close to you be so far away. :(
