My amazing grandfather

My grandfather was the most supportive person ever. He loved all his grand kids and was at every event we went to. He became distressed with his breathing and had multiple heart attacks. My dad rushed to the hospital and never got the chance to say goodbye. My heart hurts for my own father every day. He passed early January 2012 and I still struggle daily to function. I have strong days and weak days. Initially I got a call as I sat by the phone with my mom saying he had passed. We had the reaction of tears and disbelief. Minutes later my father called back saying they had gotten my grandfather back. Then what felt like so much time but was really only 10 minutes he called back again to say we had lost him officially. I feel like I lost my grandfather twice in matter of minutes. I hurt to see my dad hurt , I hurt to know my grandfather was only a few months shy of meeting my amazing nephew. I've never know a pain like this. Most days I feel I'll never recover.

I am sorry for your loss of your grandfather. YES!! There is no Pain like this grief we all feel when we lose a loved one. We couldn't even imagine this. The pain explodes inside of us and we feel we will never recover.
It is a pity that your father did not wait some time when your grandfather came back from his heart failure before telling you all as this will cause you all more pain. It is a very frightening experience. We can almost feel a state of panic and desperation for a while.
When my husband was dying from cancer. I didn't want to believe this. I was very desperate wishing that my husband would receive a healing. When I saw him draw his last breath I couldn't believe this. I couldn't ever imagine him not being here. I always felt safe. I could cry day and night just 48minutes away from the time he died. This is why a Saturday is very painful and when it reaches 9.54p.m. my heart breaks. I can't believe he has gone. It is coming up to 5 months. We will just go through each day until it doesn't hurt so much. I hope that you all as a family are supported in your grief and that you all will have better days ahead.
