    So my mom called me this morning to let me know that my grandmother passed away this morning. It was expected. She has had Emphaseyma/COPD for a few years now just getting progressively worse and since January she has been in a nursing home on hospice care. Over the last week she got phemonia and it just took it's toll. She was basically in a coma state for the last 6 days or so to keep her from feeling pain she was heavily sedated so we knew it was coming but it is still hard.

    Since I am not one to share my feelings so well I always try to fight the tears...I thought I could post on here and share my feelings and it would be easier...

    I am heading up to be with my family in just a little bit and it's so hard because when I am around my family I feel like I have to be the strong one and I fight back tears but I haven't really been able to stop crying all morning. I am really going to miss her and you really don't realize how much until she is gone. We were really close and I think I talked to her on the phone more than my mom because my mom is so busy and stuff. Eventhough the phone calls slowed, it's just weird to know that I can never pick up the phone and call her again...

    Sorry to ramble...it just helps to write it out... :)

            Thanks gals...I appreciate your kind words...i thought this would be easier...but as I read your posts...it makes me cry...but it's okay...crying is good sometimes...plus I didn't put mascara on...so I am good (I have to use humor to help me through!)
