kamataca Posted December 22, 2006 Share Posted December 22, 2006 We believe in being gently honest with our kids about Mom's health, so I was updating them this last week. I told them that Grandma got some bad news (progression), but that the Drs had a tx plan, and we were moving forward. I reminded them that Grandma is a tough ol' bird, and that they originally gave her 12-18 months to live, and that she is doing well at 22 months. My daughter asked, "Have they given Grandma a new expiration date yet?" I kept a straight face and told her that they have given up on that--she just keeps proving them wrong and it makes them look silly. Mom thought the comment was hilarious. Look what this stuff has done to our sense of humor! Kelly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
