Granny treats the doctor as if he's a child, and she treats Cornelia as if she's intruding of her business. Granny gives the doctor a difficult time because he's young, and because she doesn't appreciate his condescending manner. Cornelia, however, irritates her grandmother for no other reason than she's a good granddaughter...... Gramma would like to give her a spanking.

Granny doesn't take her illness seriously because she's been preparing for the end for twenty years and hasn't died yet. She's still preparing, but I don't think she really believes that death will ever take her. In her final moments..... Granny realizes that she was in no way as prepared as she'd believed.
