My Amazing Meal!

We all went to visit Grandpa in the nursing home on Saturday. It has been a stressful time for us all. The nurse informed Mom that he was now under Hospice care. His defibrillator for his heart had gone off on Friday afternoon while he was in bed. He said it felt like a lightning bolt going through him. The nurse said they plan to disconnect the defibrillator on Tuesday so if his heart stops again, he can go peacefully. He was happy to see us. Mom and dad brought him some warm clothes because he is always cold. They also went and bought him some new pants as all of his pants are now too big and literally falling off him. Mom bought him a Red Sox sweatshirt and he was so happy he cried. The nurses are trying to make his last days as happy as they can. He really wanted MacDonald's french fries and a shake for supper, so one of the nurses went out and got it for him. When his regular supper tray arrived, his nurse asked mom and dad if I could have it! She said they would just throw it away anyway. Mom and dad said yes. The nurse put the tray on the floor and I didn't know what to do! There was a huge piece of turkey with gravy on a slice of bread, mash potatoes and squash! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to leave it or if I could have it. The second mom said "OK", I dove right in. I cleaned my plate! Then for desert the nurse gave me an uneaten hamburger. We had a really nice visit with grandpa. We don't know if it will be the last one or not.

On Sunday mom and dad had to go back to grandpa's house to get some items before the house goes up for sale. I couldn't go because there was no room for me in the truck. The funny thing is that dad got a Penske truck. My biological dog father was Flying Penske! Mom tried to get a truck discount since I am Flying Penske's daughter which gave the rental guys a nice chuckle. When mom and dad came home with the truck, mom took some pictures of me standing under the part that say Penske!
