Hi Brian,

I think this should work.

sudo cp -p -v /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.bak
sudo  nano /etc/default/grub
(Change GRUB_DEFAULT=0 to GRUB_DEFAULT="Ubuntu, with Linux 4.15.0-48 
generic" ) (Make sure you include the double quotes, "") (Ctrl + O then 
Ctrl + X to save and exit)
sudo systemctl reboot

See if that will do what you're asking. TBH I'm use to systemd-boot, not 
grub. It's been a while since I've used grub. If that change broke 
things, you can move the grub.bak file back to /etc/default/grub
