The last time I posted an update about my grandpa was a month ago, and as some of you have been asking, I think it is time to post another update...
He has been doing a lot better... This week I spent a few nights at my mom's house because of the blackouts in mine, and it was bittersweet how he was even playing with the girls with the dolls... He was "burping" the dolls, and the girls were really understanding that he cant talk. I even sat Mimi on his lap for short periods of time (per his request) and that just light up his eyes!
He is still being fed by a tube on his nose, but from time to time (around one time every 5 days), he will take the tubes out, wich ends up in a full day of hassle for him... He does it out of desperation, and he then gets sad when he realizes what he did. They want to put his feeding tube on his stomach, but that means surgery, and there is a medication that he is having that may make him bleed, and that's why they havent made the surgery....
Anyway, he is going to start therapy to learn to swallow as they want him to start mouth feeding. After he makes progress, they will start a therapy to try to help him talk again... He really cant wait to talk, and he tries really hard to communicate...

If you believe in praying, dont forget about him while you pray, so he gets the strength he needs to move on and be stronger that all this!
