Roses for Grandma

My mother-in-law was discharged from the hospital a week ago and she's back in her home recuperating. She still feels weak but hopefully the medicines will bring back her strength.
Yohan visited his grandma and gave her some roses to brighten her day. Yohan was in high spirits as usual, cheering his grandma with his hyperactive moves.

Yohan noticed the alarm clock and asked permission to hold it. He said he was going to use it to wake up Mama Norma. I explained that his grandma was already awake. He doesn't seem contented with my answer. He said if she was really awake, then why doesn't she stand up. I realized that Yohan hasn't seen his grandma like that before. She was always outside ready to welcome Yohan's arrival. This time she was just lying in bed and doesn't have the strength to go outside and play with him. It's sad seeing her that way. I pray that she can regain her strength soon and be her normal, jolly self again.
