This day was the first time i took my grandpa to an appointment. Needless to say I was in shock on how my grandma answered all the doctors questions which by the way the doctor was a cardiologist! And my grandpa was the patient!! I remembered the question like it was yesterday, the doctor asked grandpa “how are you feeling?” And grandma responded “good” And grandpa just sat there, saying nothing other then Paula is the one who set this appointment up, give her a call. It was an appointment that I would never forget, I laughed so hard. I love you Grandpa ❤️ RIH
