This has been a very trying week and I am grateful that it is nearly through. My mind has been elsewhere and focus been completely shot.
My grandfather is in the very end stages of Alzheimer’s and cancer. For a while now, the doctors have been able to keep him comfortable, but his time is quickly approaching. He’s got pain meds pretty much non-stop, is not sleeping at night because he’s afraid to. He’s barely eating or drinking.
Last night my father told me that my grandfather had seen my aunt and grandmother. My grandmother has been dead since 1995 and my aunt since 2010.
It is time. He knows it is time and as much as it completely stinks for us, it will be a blessing for him.
