Oh my! I had to smile at the "hold your horses." That was so cute. I enjoyed all the idioms, especially "bought the farm". :) Your story is very heart-warming.
What is hoss-a-bull? Very, very choppy. Maybe a read thru by someone else to make sure the story flows. I think you had already said that Justin was your husband so another reference to that was not needed. The take on the conversations between grandfather and grandson was very good.
I found this to be a sweet and entertaining story. Loved the grampa-isms. Your title was perfect for the content here.

In a couple spots you went from past to present tense, so be careful to proofread before submitting--other than that, this earns a thumbs up from me.
Hi, to answer the question, what is a hoss-a-bull? It what a 6 year old calls a hospital. (In rememberance of my own son's language at that age). Coleene
