Every time Aiden visits my grandma it is like he brings everything back to her. She knows who we all are. She seems to just light up. She talks baby talk to Aiden. She knows who my grandpa is and kept holding his hands and crying saying "don't go". She said I love you to all of us. She kissed my cheek. She cried happy tears because she knew us all, and she cried sad tears when we left.
It may be hard to see her, because she is only a shell most days, not the person I remember. Her hair was always styled and dyed red, but not anymore. Then there are visits like this when I bring Aiden with us and it brings her back. It makes it just a little easier to come back again, knowing she really is still in there somewhere.
Here are some pictures from our visit this week.
