I posted this update on FF's Grandma in my other thread, but I've also pasted it here for those of you that were wondering how she is doing:
(if you don't want to read that part, then see below why I'm so happy now!)

But now I got an email from FF............HE GOT THE FRIDAY FLIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay!!! I'm sooooooooo excited I'm going to see him again THIS FRIDAY! It will be 2 weeks we've been apart
and what a rough time it has been for us and everything that's been going on. GOOD GOD I MISS HIM SO MUCH!!!!! I'm gonna give him all the love in the world when I see him!

I get that you''ll be happy to see him, but whoa was it weird to read how his grandma is doing (i.e. not very well) with the "So very happy" title to the thread.

Oh GOD
If you read correctly...I said I posted it in the other thread but attached it here. Then I said if you don''t want to read all that part, then read the bottom part and that''s why I''m happy. I''m not happy about her condition. Come on now!

I did read it correctly. ''Attached'' or not, the vast majority of your OP is still about how badly she''s doing for those of us who didn''t read your other thread. The reaction to those of us reading it here for the first time was a bit jarring, as I was expecting a good update on his grandmother, as well as your happiness at his imminent return.

If you didn''t want it to be read like that ("So happy, grandma doing badly, he''s coming home yay") then maybe it should''ve been layed out differently, or just a link to the update instead? But please don''t have an attitude with the ultra-condescending rolling eyes emoticon because I read what you wrote. As someone who regularly spent two weeks or more apart from my love, I know all too well how you must miss him, but that didn''t erase the "bwa??!!" feeling I got when I read your post. I''m glad you''ll see him soon, and I''m very, very sorry things with his grandma aren''t going well. I''ve been in his shoes, and it''s the most heartbreaking, awful thing. My heart goes out to him.

I was trying to be helpful and provided the link to the other thread as well as I figured many wouldn't read the posting in the other thread on her updates. I've asked that that part be removed (because I don't have the option to fix it myself) so hopefully the admins will fix that for me. Again, I had posted if you didn't want to read the update on his Grandma, to just read what was below it. We've gone through so much the past 2 weeks with her and we are both incredibly happy to see one another once again so I wanted to share. It's something good to look forward to after all the sadness and stress...

Hope she gets better...or, at the very least, that she''s not suffering.

Glad your bf is coming home

Thanks B
Love ya girl! We are so greatful that she is alive today and makes a little progress almost daily (not much, but a little anyway). That is also certainly something to be happy about too. I just don't want her to be in any pain but it looks like a long road ahead. I've told him to hold onto everyday she is here with us because we don't know what will happen tomorrow. It's kind of a toss-up at this point but she is with us today. I'm so glad he was able to make it out there to be with her and he's been by her side the entire time. That starts to put a lot of wear on a person emotionally though and he's ready to come home. He still has some vacation time saved up too incase he needs to get back out there. We both just think him coming home and for us to see each other again is a great way to celebrate life and live in happiness! That's why I wanted to share. Because for today, we can be happy.

Yay! I''m so happy that you guys will be reunited again! It''s SO hard to be away from each other for so long! (I can only speculate how the surrounding situation must compound the feelings so much more.) I hope his grandma continues to make positive signs of recovery, even if it''s slow. What a ****** deal!

I was a bit confused as well, but i realized it must have been that he was coming home soon (the reason of the title). i''m working on 4 hours of sleep here

I''m sorry she''s not doing signifigantly better, but i''m glad your guy is comming home. I hope he has a good flight!

Aw, I thought you were going to post that his grandma was getting better.
At least you get to see him soon. That''s good. I know that even short separations are tough.

I am soooooo excited to see him!!! But on the other hand, I''m sort of sad he has to leave his Grandma. So it''s going to be hard on him too because he wants to come home but I know a part of him wants to stay with her. You know? I hope I can cheer him up a little when he gets back. I wish there was something I could do for him, but I don''t know what.

Don''t expect him to be totally excited and happy when he comes home. When I lost someone close to me, I didn''t want to see SO for a while, no matter how he tried to cheer me up. I just wanted to be alone. People grieve differently. I know his g''ma has not passed on yet, but he could still be grieving. Wishing you guys the best!

Two weeks feels like an eternity when you''re missing your man. I''m glad for you that he''s coming home tomorrow.

Thanks ladies!

fuzzers- I know what you mean. And I don''t expect him to be fully happy when he returns. His dad unexpectedly passed away back in 2003 and it was a rough time but he wanted me to be around him more than ever, so I''m hoping it''s just the same when he comes back. He says he sure does miss me. He even sent me the cutest little card with a sweet letter inside
Been calling me every evening and giving me updates. I''ll be there for him however he wants me to be I guess. Thanks for the support!

I hope your boyfriend''s grandmother continues to improve. A stroke can be devastating. Poor woman.

Wow. My heart is going crazy right now and I can almost cry in excitement knowing he's almost home to me.
I don't think it's helping any that I'm listening to Snow Patrol Crack the Shutters either (such a beautiful song)...lol
