Grandpa at 94

Nov 18, 2007

Word came last night that my maternal grandfather, Louis Sisco, age 94, was taken to the hospital short of breath and with a racing heart. My mother flew to Chicago today to be at his bedside.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that Grandpa Sisco has been an important person in my life — from him I’ve learned to be punctual, generous and loyal, and to share life with my family (see my N&O blogging ethics essay to understand why I’m a blogger because of him).

UPDATE 11/19: I talked with Grandpa today. He sounded tired, but upbeat, ready to get home for Thanksgiving. The doc says his ticker is clogged a bit. Mom read him my N&O essay. “That made my day,” Grandpa said to me in a second phone call.
