    Well, the waiting is over. We got the call last night. She passed in her sleep. Basically, we drove up Tuesday night to help out the family and see her. We said our final goodbye's last night around 9:00 and headed home. We got the call about 20 min. after we left that she had passed. Sux, but she was in so much pain. She is at peace and she had her whole family there to comfort her (almost 80 of us!! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif) She is now on her way to hook up with my gramps again. Tomorrow, we head back out to help the family get her ranch cleaned up and ready to sell. I grew up there. That's gonna suck.

    Anyway tonight I will drink to good memories, wonderful blessings from my gramma, and everything good she did for us.

    My thoughts/prayers go out to the rest of the gang. May you have the strength and courage to make it through these next trials.

    Thanks for the kind words and support. She was an awesome lady with many stories to tell. She will be missed.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The hospital sent my gramma home on Saturday to die. She's 83 years old and her body just won't cooperate anymore. Poor woman. She lived a good long life and now it's nearing the end for her (diabetes, cancer, liver problems, basically body shutting down). Prolly gonna have a funeral soon. At least they have her on enough drugs that she'll go peacefully and relatively pain free. I should be getting the phone call any time/day now. This sux....gonna have to drink a few over this one.

    Many people just don't make it or never had a chance. It makes me smile to see older people and i wonder of the stories they could tell.So many people and families don't exist because of early deaths due to wars, cars, accidents, disease, suicides etc. We can only envy these wonderful older people and hope we also lead full lives as they have.

    Re: Getting old and waiting to die sux...

    I'm sorry to hear that, your family is in my thoughts...

    I am going through a similar thing right now too, my best friends mother is in the hospital not expecting to make it the rest of the week. She has cancer throughout her entire body, emphazema, and diabetes, her body is giving up fighting finally. She was like a mother to me and I hate seeing her go through this. I am just trying to be as supportive as I can to my girlfriend and help her through such a hard time, thats what good friends are for.
