It runs in the genes! lol

My whole family is nuts, it's hereditary! lol

Gramma Annie was hospitalized last week, she was in pain with gall stones, her gall bladder was inflamed and needed to be removed, she had a UTI, her belly button was herniated and she had developed a heart murmur....she will be turning 89 this month.

So here is my extended family sitting in the surgery waiting room, hoping that Gramma Annie can make it through the surgery, cracking each other up and who ever else was listening...getting shushed a lot from the elderly woman volunteering at the desk..so after 3 hours in surgery, the surgeon comes into the waiting room to update us on her status...now because we are all secretly holding our breath, hoping that she made it through the surgery and we deal with everything with humor...we let the doctor speak in his serious tone....it gets to the part about her belly button being herniated and that they had to remove it along with her gall bladder leaving her with a small scar on her lower and upper belly and with two small punctures on her side.....without breaking a smile I ask the Doctor with my most serious face......."Doctor please....all we want to know is.......is she still going to be able to wear her bikini?" Now this sends the family over the edge and for a moment the Doctor is silent then adds his own humor by telling us that they (the Doctors) were just discussing that when they were sewing her up! So at soon to be 89 she gets a tummy tuck too!!! Copy Cat!!! lmaoooo Too Funny.....God I love being a Brennan! lol lol lol

You had me going Kim.....I could tell it was going to be hilarious, and it was!!  I'm sorry she had to have surgery, and hope she heals quickly and feels good real soon.  Poor little thing, especially at her age.  But, with so many things wrong with her, once she heals, she's bound to feel better!  I sent you an email.

Take Care,
~Bilinda~

LOL!  And your craziness is contagious, it seems!  They do say, laughter is the best medicine.  Thank you for today's medicine!  I hope your grandma is okay and heals quickly.  I'll be filing an application for adoption ASAP.  :-D

Aw, poor Gramma Annie....I assume she lost her belly button ring, too. :( LOL

I'm sure she would be happy to know how her family is dealing with all this.

Have a great weekend, Kim!!
