Mamaw Update

My grandmother is out of ICU. Yay!

My mom was able to go visit Mamaw last week and said that her strength and alterness have steadily improved. I also heard from my cousin Amy, who said that Mamaw seems to understand when she mentions people's names and she even pats Amy's hand in response to hearing about family members. I'm so glad to hear that she's doing better.

This time last year...

... Mary and I were on our way to the Barrister's ball!
It was a fun night.

Below is a picture of us that we took before we went out.

My grandmother is in the hospital. She had a stroke yesterday. The doctors have stabilized her condition, but I don't know yet what to expect or what might happen as a result of the stroke. She can't talk right now because the part of her brain that influences speech was affected.

Please keep her in your thoughts.

Manatee Love

Elliot and I have a special place in our hearts for the manatee. I dare say that it was the manatee that catalyzed our romantic interest in one another back in high school. But that's a story for a different day.

Our dear friend Kelli found this book and snapped a picture of the cover for us:

Though I have not read the book myself, I have a feeling that Mary Manatee meets a strapping young sea cow named Elliot Manatee and they live happily ever after.
