My Dad stopped by my Grandparent's for dinner tonight and updated them on my whole ankle situation.
Mema and Papa refuse to join the rest of us on the Internet, so my family has constructed a whole complex system of communication to get information from Washington, D.C. to Claremore, Oklahoma, where my Grandparents now live. It involves family members with access to both email and vehicles capable of off-roading up to their home.
It's not a full proof system, but it works. Dad just sent me a photo of my Grandparents saying hello.
Welcome to the Internet, Mema and Papa!
