Default Looking for good thoughts/prayers

My grandmother is in the hospital tonight; she had a stroke this evening. The doctors say it wasn't an overly severe one -- she still has the full use of her limbs and knows everything and everyone around her. Her speech is a little slurred, though.

I haven't been to the hospital yet -- my mother, who lives with her, is with her, and so is my aunt, who came to town immediately after she got the call. I know there's nothing I can do at the hospital anyway, but I guess I just keep thinking of what she said to me when I left her house this afternoon (eerily, only about twenty minutes before she had the stroke): I told her that I would see her tomorrow, and she said, "Yes, God willing."

It's what she *always* says (I guess when you're ninety-one years old, every day is a question mark) but the fact that she had a damn stroke not long after she said it...well, it gives me the willies. You know?

She's the only grandparent I've ever known (all my other grandparents died before I had a chance to have any memories of them) and I cannot imagine life without her. I know she'll be okay (she's a tough old bird) but this still has me shaken up.

So I guess what I'm asking for is some good thought power. Light a candle, say a prayer (if that's your thing)....****, whatever you do to send good vibes would be great. I guess I just need someone else's thoughts to join with mine tonight.
