Nice to e-meet you! That's internet for Hello. And that's also about as far as I got in planning what to say in this thing...but as a lover of spontaneity and the inability to edit my own words because that would mean actually having an awareness as to the nothingingness that I am about to ramble on about for far too long...I'm just going to go ahead and keep typing. Apparently...

A Heart Story

I spent today visiting with my Grandma's brother and wife and wanted to share their story with you.



Sam and Shirley.
They are both eighty years old.
Thave been together since they were seventeen.
They are pretty much inseperable.
In November, Sam had a heart attack.
Shirley called 911 and in the Ambulance on the way to the hospital, Shirley had a heart attack.
When Sam became conscious and was told about his wife, He had another heart attack.
The two of them had side by side beds in the hospital.
The staff had never seen anything like it. People from all over the hospital came to see it for themselves (and made sure to tell them that they were not to do any hanky panky in the hospital).
Everyone took pictures and retold their story.
They didn't mind.
They both had amazing recoveries and continue to be in love.

    Aww that's really nice (and also quite sad at the same time). Glad that they recovered! I hope I feel like that when I am older.
