Lost both my grandparents.

My grandparents raised me since I was 3 years old. My grandma passed away 2/16/12. After a long battle with colon cancer. I was devastated. I was very close with my grandma and though I was heartbroken I new she was out of her misery so there was a slight relief for her. I of coarse made sure I called my papa almost everyday. Stopped over all the time and he would come by every other day to visit. My papa asked if he could start babysitting a few hours a day for at that time my 8 month old. I said of coarse. I started to notice weight loss, paleness and swollen ankles on him about 6 months later. Had him to the dr. I got a call the next day from his dr telling me to get him to the er right away. His hemoglobin level was critically low. After some tests at the hospital we were td his stomach was. 95% cancer. When they did the test to see that with a scope they caused him to bleed internally and I was told he wouldn't make it the night. I lost it. I was always closer to my papa. He was my best friend. My protector. I couldn't believe this was happening. For some reason that no one knows his bleeding stopped and I was able to take him home. He died in my arms 6 weeks later. 11/16/12. 9 months to the day that my grandmas passed. It's been a little over a year and I am still sick to my stomach such deep depression. I cry all the time. I just can't believe this. I feel like I have list all that I am
