Hello from Los Angeles

Posted on: May 22nd, 2009 by Jennifer 6 Comments

I am sitting at a Starbucks on Sunset Boulevard using free wi-fi because I've been at my grandmother's house for the past few days (right above Sunset Blvd) and it is like being in a technological black hole.  You can't even use dial up service at her house because her phone lines are drilled into the wall and are not the type you can plug in and out….  crazy.

I know Amy has had a busy few days and I had all good intentions to blog about her press days and all of her appearances but I got a call on Sunday saying my grandmother (Nan) was being sent home from the hospital and into hospice care and would only have a few days.  I immediately flew out here with Braden and my family and we've been gathered around her bedside ever since.  She is still alive and making us smile with funny one-liners and old stories but she is slipping every day.  It has been one of the most beautiful weeks of my life, although sad.  The cycle of life God ordains is one of mystery and beauty – from beginning to end.

Anyway, I'm headed back up the hill in a minute but wanted you all to know the silence on this end is for good reason and I will check back in after all the goodbyes have been said.

    Having been bedside for the passing of both my parents, I know something of the experience you’re going through, Jen. But your situation is, of course, unique, as is your grandmother. Just know that the thoughts and prayers of many are with your entire family now. May you all feel the loving presence of God surrounding you.

    Hope you’re ok, Jen. Altho it’s tough, it is nice that you could say goodbye to her. Sounds like you and your family are giving her lots of love and comfort. She’s a lucky woman.

    I just wanted to say, you’re in my prayers. I’m sure your grandma is blessed to have loved ones by her side.
