The most amazing lady I have ever met, my Grandmother.

by Julia

21 years ago, on Christmas day was the first time I met my Grandma. I don't remember but the stories she told me were truly amusing.
My Grandma was my best friend, family member and the most most amazing person I have ever met. She taught me so much through my life and she was always there for me when I had a problem, she was my rock through life. Especially when I got my sickness phobia and depression.
In august 2012my grandma fell and snapped her femur bone clean in half and was rushed to hospital where she had a operation and was left to recover and heal. The family and I were very optimistic that she would be better and out very soon. We then got some awful news from the hospital saying she had contracted MRSA and everything went downhill from there...

On the 7th September we got a call from the hospital saying that my mum and dad had to go talk to the Dr and it was the worst news imaginable. He said she had cancer and only had a few days left to live so the whole family met up and a few hours later she passed away. That was most devastating day ever.

I still miss her terribly and I blame myself for it all... I was suppose to go to hers that night but I didn't, I could of helped her and avoided the accident. I know I shouldn't blame myself, but it just haunts my mind.

She's in a better place now with her the love of her life my axing grandad. RIP Marjorie Joan Pilich , I love you dearly.

Julia, I am sorry for your loss of your grandmother. Of course you know in reality that you are not to blame for your grandmothers death.
Even if you went to visit her and help her. You may have prevented her having an accident, and you not have. No one really knows what would have happened. Your grandmother had cancer. She died of this not a broken femur.
My husband died 6 months ago of cancer and I miss him terribly. Cancer is a dreadfull disease and most people don't recover from this unless of course they get a miracle.
It was probably your grandmother's time to leave this world. It is hard to believe this. I find it hard to accept this as my husband died at 65yrs. and his parents died in their late 80's and his 2 surviving brother's are in their late 70's and one sister in her mid 60's. Children also die at a young age of cancer and so I have to accept this as a part of life.
Grief is still very hard even when a loved one is elderly. It is not unreasonable to want love and life to last forever. But in reality we will all die some day. But best not think of this now. We have to go on living as best as we can each day and live well.
