Current Mood: sad sad

I haven't written much about my grandpa lately because we haven't gotten much good news. He's continued to deteriorate over the past week, semi conscious most of the time. TOday, he's stopped responding completely. My dad had planned to go to Arizona to help out on Monday, but he's now moved that up to tomorrow. Tomorrow, he'll leave straight after graduation. If the end is near, as we fear, we will soon follow. I knew it would happen soon, knew that the end would come soon, but you never are ready as a human being, to realize the end. He's not gone yet, but we're all preparing ourselves and my dad's going to make that 1500 mile trip as fast as his truck will take him. It will all turn out ok when he is in a beter place in HEaven, but he left behind lost of good and even funny memories. My Grandma and Grandpa need your thoughts and prayers. Man, wouldn't it be great if I could turn all of the chemistry knowledge to good use and cure what's killed my Grandpa on my mom's side, and who knows how many other family members of mine and millions in society around the world.

re: Arizona

Just thought I'd write aand give my empathies.
I can say that when my grandma died almost two years ago, what did help was the fact we knew the time was near, since she was having kidney failure and such when it was happening. I was lucky in the fact that I was able to say goodbye to her a week before it actually happened, and for the most part, we were able to go through the grieving process before she went, and then feel it a relief that she was able to go go be with grandpa in peace when the time came, since she was essentially looking forward to going by the end of it all. In fact, she was going to go for a dialysis on the day she died, but, when they tried to get the machines working, something in the mechanism broke down, or something. She did not want to go through this dialysis or anything more anyway. So, when the machine wouldn't work, and they had to disconnect her or something, there was this smile on her face like, "Yay! It didn't work! I get to go home finally!" And, she was gone peacefully not long after.
My positive light goes to you and your family right now, especially your Grandpa, that you all will find comfort soon no matter the outcome.

I'll definitely be praying! I know how hard this is. I've been through it before. If there's any way I can help, let me know.
