Praying for Nanny

Nanny and Brandon (July 1998) ((Brandon was 1 yr old))
My Nanny has been in and out of the hospital in the last month.  Last weekend my sisters went to visit her.  They told me Nanny didn't look well. She was tired a lot and has lost the will to fight anymore.  Nanny has congestive heart failure, her blood pressure is drastically up and down and she complains about being tired all the time.  I fear her heart is giving out on her.  I do not know how much longer she has with us.  I am going to visit her this weekend.  In fact, I am leaving tonight.  It's about a 12 hour drive.    My youngest son is taking the trip with me.

Todd and Nanny (Nov 1997)

Several years ago Nanny could not take care of herself anymore and had to move to my father's house.  From PA to SC.

Although Brandon hasn't seen Nanny is a long time.  It fact, it's been about seven years.  However, he still remembers the visits we would take to her house.  His words "Isn't she the Nanny who would give us the lollipops".  Yep!  My Nanny always gave the boys lollipops every time she saw them.

I can't wait to see my Nanny.  Brandon thought it would be a good idea to bring her a lollipop!
