between 2004-2007, i was a live-in caretaker for my great grampa. really sort of a glorified buddy.
he was a very spirited guy, and he was in his nineties!
over the course of my time with him, he had a few hospital stay/visits, and he was on first name basis with most of the nurses. i worked at the starbucks near the hospital, and nurses who came by would always ask about him.
