Unhappy I think my grandma is not going to be coming home

She is in the hospital right now with failing kidneys and a severe case of pnemonia. She is not expected to make it and most of my family have gathered near her to wait for the news. She is 91, so I am pretty sure there will not be any miraculous recoveries.

There is a whole lot of emotions going on in my head right now. Most of it I can't even start to express yet. I just wanted to ask everyone to keep her in their thoughts. She is terrified of death, but on the other hand she has lost so much of her mental facautlies lately that I am not even sure she knows what is going on.

Just keep her in your thoughts and hope for a peaceful and fearless passing ok?

Thanks everyone. I was kind of surprised at how much it affected me. I am just now starting to feel normal again.

In a way it wasn't my grandma so much as my father. I have never seen him looking so utterly alone and defeated. He also looked so old and worn out. The image of him standing at the curb watching the herse pull away is going to haunt me for life. As some of you may remember reading he and I have a bit of a strained relationship.

Gah.

Anyhow, thank you everyone. It is greatly appreciated. Click here to enlarge
