2 days ago was my grandpa`s birthday, and the whole family went to visit him at the recovery centre. I made a cake too, and he loved it. He`s having slow improvements but still cannot talk or walk. My uncle also surprised him by calling one of his brothers, who lives in the US, on phone and he seemed very happy to hear his voice.
The photo shows a montage that we got made for his 70th birthday last year (grandma got the same present the year before). Most of those photos are from his time at troops (in Hungary every men had to join for few years after they turned 18), but the bottom left was taken in the US in the 70`s, and there is one (top left) when they were young with my grandma as well. Young him looks a lot like actor Luke Perry who played Dylan on the tv-series Beverly Hills 90210.
It`s unbelievable how things changed over a year. Last year we all were at his surprise birthday dinner at a restaurant, and this year he had to spend it at a hospital.
