Breaking the news

I just returned from the nursing home. Waited with my parents until my sister and uncle brought my grandmother down. Mom had just told her on the phone that the nurses said "it would happen sooner than they had thought," so Nana didn't know that he was actually dead. She walked into the room and stood next to the bed and cried. "It happened so fast," she said. They had been married over 56 years, and now in the matter of a couple weeks after falling, he's gone and she's alone. I don't think that there are too many things worse than that.

My grandmother, uncle, and Mom and Dad are still over there. Jana and I came home. I thought writing things out would make me feel better. I'm not crying as much, but my headache and throat are still really bad, so I'm going to go off to bed. I don't know how things will be in the morning.


Grandpa died

About ten minutes ago I found out that my grandfather had just died. So to all my friends... if you don't hear from me in the next couple days, it's either cuz I'm doing family things or trying to get healthy.

...What can I do with a 4-foot bear?

I got a HUGE stuffed bear from my friend Marie. I swear, I should put it in the passenger seat of my car and drive in the carpool lane. I dunno where else I'd put it... it's that freakin' huge! My sister loves it, tho. She cuddled with it for a couple hours while she was on the computer. She even named it "Snuggle-Buggle Boo." (Nope, she's not three, she's sixteen years old.*sigh*)

Valentine's Day

Well... happy Valentine's day.

Today my plans consist of (in likliest chronological order):
a) Sleeping (no class today!)
b) Possibly helping to move my grandfather into an assisted living community
c) Going to help the teacher (Abe Lincoln's #1 fan)
d) Hanging with Mike

My grandpa (who has been worse the past few days, (not waking up for a whole day, and then not recognizing anyone when he did wake up) is being moved into my neighborhood. Just a few blocks away from our house is an assited living community. It will be good to have him close to our home.

Grandpa's in the hospital

On Tuesday night my grandfather fell and broke his neck. Actually, a disk slipped and if it is knocked further out of place he may be paralyzed or die. He is still in the hospital, and my family (my parents, grandmother, and uncle) have been taking shifts staying with him, 'cuz I guess he gets pretty confused when he isn't at home and is on pain meds.

What kind of drunk are you?
I haven't gotten drunk, so don't ask me if that's a correct conclusion.
