I was asked on my formspring: What is the hardest thing you've had to deal with?
I would have to say, my grandmother currently being in the hospital. She's been in the hospital for a little over 2 months now after some complications with a surgery. It has been hard, although it has become easier and easier as I have allowed my faith to take control in knowing that God is a healer. Where doctors said she was going to die, He brought forth a miracle.
My grandmother raised me, and this is probably the longest I've gone in my life without speaking to her, on top of the first time I've had worry about her health, AND I'm in Philly, and she's in CT so having the money to go up and visit is hard. Her hospitalization was also a great surprise, because we expected her back home after a week's recovery.
So long story short, dealing with my grandmother being in the hospital has probably been one of the hardest things I've had to deal with in my adult life. She's the rock of our family and everyone who knows her knows she is not one to sit down. I am happy to say that she is getting better. :-)
Here are my grandparents at my wedding in October of '09 :-D
