Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I called Inklings last night and she says her Mom is getting a little stronger and a little bit better every day. She got so far down before her last surgery that it will probably take a few weeks (maybe months) for her to get most of her strength back. I am glad we live close enough that she can go help out until her Mom is a lot better.

Grandpa is going with Twist today to get his eyes checked and get his new lenses so he should be able to see a little bit better. Right now it is a good thing that their kids can come help out. Without the help there would be a lot of things that would not be taken care of.

I called mom over there last night too and asked how Grandma was. Grandma said she's fine as long as she lays down! :) Hopefully she'll get better soon!
