My grandmother died a few days ago
Not sure if they landed on an alzheimer or dementia diagnosis, but she's been sick for well over 10 years in total and totally "gone" for the last 2 or 3. I haven't seen her for quite some time because she got confused and a bit scared after visits from people she didn't recognize. But I haven't really felt that the woman in the nursing home was the same grandmother who babysat me and that I had so much fun with growing up. Guess I said goodbuy to that grandmother awhile ago. But now it feels very final, and I'm very sad (and a bit relieved for her now that she doesn't have to suffer anymore - she got so sick near the end).
I'm going to say a few words in her funeral this friday and all these memories keep coming up when I try to figure out what to write down.
Am really going to miss her a lot
And to top it all, I'm stressed out by finding a way to get back to my parents home, with my son and all the things he need, and I'm not sure my boyfriend will be able to get back from work in time for the funeral.
*Sigh* Feel I need a drink, but what I really need is a hug and to drag myself to bed.
Goodnight everyone, be sure to tell the ones you care for that you love them!!
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.
