Thoughts

Been a very weird week.  Was off on Monday, spent the day with Jeff hanging out, running a few errands and watching TV... Tuesday it was back to the grind at work... found out Grandma is not doing very well at all.  They have her on pain meds and she is sleeping a lot.  Out of state family has come in today, mainly my mom's twin brother... throw on top of that more stress at work... I think I am doing pretty well... Grandma as of early this evening was steady with sleep and pain meds.  Body is shutting down. No food or liquids, everything minimal through IV... body can't handle it... every time the phone beeps or rings, you just don't know.  Speaking with mom this morning, she was not very optimistic.  Grandma is surrounded by a ton of family right now... all 8 of her surviving children are near her... many of the 50+ grandchildren and great grandchildren are too.. She is a fighter. Hopefully I will get one more chance to see her...trying to work things out now with brother to make the trip... hope we are not too late...

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother buddy. I hope things work out with making travel arrangements to go see her. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

This is a very difficult time, both for your Grandmother and you, and my prayers are with both of you. But don't get too upset if you can't see her one last time. You'll remember her when she was healthy and vibrant. Just be available for your Mom & brother.

Kelly, take comfort that you got to see your Grandmother one last time. Take comfort that she was surrounded by her family. Most importantly, take comfort that she's no longer suffering or in any pain. Kelly, I know your pain. I've been there. But your Grandmother is in a better place, now and forever, Amen.
