Me and my grandma towards the end :'(

Me and my grandma towards the end :'(

So I lost my grandma 4 months and 4 days ago. It was sudden but at the same time it wasn't. This whole year she has been in and out of the hospital. She would have been 89 this November. She was the best grandma ever. I miss her soo much it kills me. I just wish I got to spend as much time with her as her other grandchildren did, but since I'm only 16 I didn't get to. :'( She didn't know about me until she came over and my dad said "here's your granddaughter" and from that moment she loved me and always did. (My dad didn't know about me till my real mom knocked on his door and said "here’s your daughter") Every chance I got I would go see her and spend time with her. She was a major part of my life and I will never forget her. I still remember the day she passed away. May 5, 2013. Friday she fell but didn't go down hard. She bent her knees and landed on her butt. Then Saturday, she was half out of it. It was like she had another mini stroke because she couldn't talk. It was so hard to see her like that and that's when it hit me that she wasn't going to make it much longer. Then Sunday, when I saw her I knew it was her last day because she was in a complete comatose state. It killed me to see her like that. Then at 7:06 while I was holding her hand she took her last breath. :'( But she’s in a much better place where she's not suffering or in pain. Rest in Peace Grandma. I love you and I miss you.

I am sorry to hear about your husband. It's very true that you just have to live day by day. Yeah it gets a little easier but you never forget them. I have been really been spending more time with my dad since she passed away because I realized how special every moment is. It's really hard because everywhere I look I see something that reminds me of her but it gets a little easier as time goes but you never forget them. Since her passing I have not made her proud by some of the choices I made but I didn't know how to handle my emotions. Thank you both for your amazing comments. I appreciate your kind words that will help with dealing with the lose. God Bless you both.

Cathy I am sorry for your loss of your grandma. I am glad you got to see her and know her before she died. She lived to a good age and this is a Blessing. The older our loved one's get the more medical problems they have to cope with and so your grandma is safe in the arms of God.
My husband of 44yrs. died on 5th May 2012. I will never forget this day either. The worst day of my life. All you can do is to take one day at a time and you will eventually heal from your loss. I hope you get to have a good relationship with your father, even if this is so late in life to know him. Enjoy the time while you can because life is becoming all too short with loved one's dying at a faster rate. I hope your days get easier and you are able to move forward from your loss.

To Cathy: you sound like a lovely young lady who has loved and been loved by a very wonderful Grandma. It hurts very much to lose our loved ones. we all must go through this trial in life and dedicate our lives now to living in such a way that will honor our loved ones memories. May God Bless you as you keep your Grandma's love and memories in your heart and live your life as she would want you to. Blessing---and comfort to you.
