Day 389 and WOOHOO!!!!

Well, I know I mentioned this yesterday, but's worth mentioning again. LOL. We paid off our American General Finance note today! I can just barely express what a big deal this is to us to know that both of our vehicles are free and clear and ours! It feels like stepping out of bondage to know that we will no longer owe American General Finance any money since we have been making payments to them for years on loans that we kept renewing/refinancing.

On a personal note. I have a couple of prayer requests. My grandpa is in the hospital. He had a stroke last week, was doing better and went home, then had to go back this past Sunday. Also, my dad sees a heart doctor on February 16th.

Your post is filled with both good news and some sadness. I hope Grandpa is okay. What is his status now?

By the way, thanks so much for the kind posts on my blog! They mean the world.

Hope you are having a nice weekend.

Heidi, thanks for asking. My grandpa is doing about the same. The main problem is that he is having trouble swallowing so he cannot eat or drink so he has a feeding tube and he is having a little trouble talking. They are not sure how much of that is from the dry mouth from not being able to drink, though. He is walking around and his other motor skills are all fine so that's good news. They have been doing electronic stimulating of his throat muscles and were going to do another swallow test today. If they can get him to where he can eat/drink, they'll let him go home where he'll probably feel a lot better anyway.
