Our visit went really well today. Great Grandma Harmon seems to be holding up fairly well. Her skin is more yellow than I thought it would be, that's from the bile buildup. Her spirits were good though and she was laughing and telling stories as usual. We got to go over to her house and take the things we wanted and it was so strange. I felt somewhat uncomfortable, but was glad to be able to do it. I got some bread pans, I don't have any, but have always wanted some and I remember hot bread cooling in those same pans. I also got a hand knitted poncho, a baby blanket for Kathryn, some yarn, a bunch of flannel material to make blankets with, some barbie dolls again for Kathryn, Some raffia and thread. I think that is everything, oh and a toaster oven. It was also hard to see her looking like that, she has always seemed so vibrant. The doctor said this week that she is 3 months ahead of were he thought she would be at this point. We are on a accelerated time frame now. I don't think she will make it until Kathryn's first birthday. I didn't want to say goodbye when it was time to leave. I'm glad that we got to go and we did have a really nice visit. Grandma got to hold Kathryn for a while, and she was all smiles. The hardest thing for me is that Katy won't get to know her, because she won't remember ever being around her. I've always been so blessed to have my grandparents and I wish the same for her. We did get a really wonderful 5 generation picture and I'm so glad for that. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
