Thank you to all of the people who commented on my last post.
So the details are as follows.
(a) Last Wednesday night/Thursday morning my grandfather fell out of his bed at the nursing home he is staying at. The nurses got him back into bed, had tea with him and put him back to bed. In the morning he was unresponsive. The nursing home doctor checked him out and called the hospital. He was admitted Thursday morning and the doctor told my dad that my grandfather didn’t have much time left. It’s six days later and he is still struggling. He opens his eyes and acknowledges movement and sound but we aren’t sure how much he is processing. He is relatively stable but not getting any better. Firda and I spent as much time as we could with him and my family over the weekend and will probably go back down this weekend.
(b) My cousin was diagnosed with cancer around 8 years ago. She has battled it and struggled against it for those 8 years. Several months back the cancer came back in full force and she was put into palative care. This morning at just before 7 a.m. she passed away. My aunt spent the last couple of months by her bedside. I know she is in a better place now. She fought a good fight. I’m not sure when the funeral will be.
So that’s the update. Things are okay with the family. We are all coping. Thanks for your thoughts 🙂
