My name is April and i lost 2 grandmothers within 3 months of each other both with heart attack. Its been especially hard on me as the first one I lost i spoke with the day before i didnt really think she would go so soon. She kept talking about being tired and she felt like she was going to go soon so she wanted to see us the next day. I got woke up to a phone call from my dad saying she was in the hospital that she had collapsed on my way to the hospital i was not prepared for what was in store. upon arrival i was crushed to find out she had passed all she wanted was to see her grand babies one more time. :( i miss her all the time and i regret not spending enough time with her. My second grandmother in a way was totally different she was my friend like my other mother and she was always there for me we were extremely close. I lived with her most of my life she raised me into the woman i am today. She suffered a heart attack in November 2013 she recovered and was totally fine. i didnt make it down to see her on Christmas i was sick with my thyroid and that will be the worst mistake that i will regret forever. she was such a strong woman i expected her to live forever. she lost my grandfather to cancer and never remarried or dated. she spent her time working and making sure her family was taken care of. she was very strong. i get so emotional because i was in the hospital having thyroid surgery the day before she died and my mother had my kids for me till i got better and i got a call i will never get out of my head your grandma is gone she had a heart attack again it was so unexpected. Even though she doesnt have to be tired anymore or suffer i still feel jealous that i dont get to be with her anymore.
