I agree with everyone saying don’t respond…to a point. But I completely understand OP’s desire to not drop it because then OP’s grandmother will feel like she won. And you can’t let bullies win! lol. I wouldn’t respond line-for-line to the cattiness, but I would want to let her know that I noticed what she was trying to do, I don’t appreciate it and I won’t be indulging it. I would probably respond with a quick  email:

I’m glad you and your friend are well. As you know I also recently had surgery and need all the love and support I can get to speed along my recovery. For some reason, your last couple of emails to me have seemed rather aggressive, which I must say does not benefit either of us. Going forward, I’ll be declining to respond to messages from you that I find hurtful.
