    My dad's mother, "Granny" is losing her battle with cancer. The doctor has told us that it's time to call in the family.

    I have been blessed for all of my 33 years to know Granny. Everyone who knows her has been blessed, she's that kind of person. In her younger years, she was stunningly beautiful. Tall, blonde and full of the kind of fire that all men look longingly after. She had movie star looks when nobody knew what that meant. She's squeezed every last drop out of life, and now it looks like it's time for her to go home. In typical Granny fashion, she'll probably curse death and sadness and try to get one of us to sneak her in a beer or something..... she's just that way. There is literally nobody on planet earth that knows her, that doesn't absolutely adore her.

    She has been the best grandparent ever, she has spoiled me for as long as I can remember.... letting me sleep under the Christmas tree, always buying me toys when we went to the store, cooking me whatever meal I wanted at any time, letting me pick out my Christmas presents, taking me fishing anytime I wanted, in my older years she gave me a boat, ad nauseum... In the later years after my grandpa died, it wasn't unusual to find her at the same bars that we went to, having a beer with her friends. She's been known to try to order a beer in intensive care, tell dirty jokes to doctors, and she's even decked some silly lady who bad-mouthed our family name. She has grabbed life by the throat and choked the very breath out of it. :lol:

    Now she's ready to go. She's known that she is dying, and she's ready. There's no stopping her when she makes up her mind to do anything, and this will be no different. She raised 3 boys and 6 grandkids and we're all gonna miss her like nothing else. This is gonna be the toughest death that I've ever had to deal with. Please just pray that my Granny will go peacefully and painlessly. The rest of us will be alright, but it wll be painful.

    Thanks.

    Well, I thought I'd give you all an update.

    First of all, thanks so much for all the prayers and well-wishes that've come my way through this thread and PM's. It's hard to express how much it means to me, just knowing that you folks care about someone that you've never met. Thanks.

    Granny is getting close to going home now. For the last few days, she's been either completely comatose or hallucinating badly from pain meds when she's awake. It's extremely hard to see her in this condition, but going and spending time with her in the hospital is the right thing to do. We have been taking turns spending time by her bed around the clock. When she passes away, we just don't want her to be alone.

    Her husband George, whom she married 2 years ago, has been spending the days with her and the rest of the family has been spending nights with her. God himself must've picked George as a companion for Granny in her final days.... the man is the most loving, caring, and thoughtful person that she could've found. I'm proud to call him family.

    If you don't mind, please remember Granny and our family in your prayers.

    Thanks again.

    I know only well,you see I lost my 47y/o brother-in-law to Lung and Bone Cancer. Oh it was Horrible! He seen bats flying in the air and would tell my sister,yelling at her"Watch out,their coming right at ya"He swing his cane blindly thru the air cause he was knocking them down,he didn't want her or himself to get bitten by them I guess! My sister had a terrible time,he only lasted 7 months after he was diagnoised,and as bad as it was it was a blessing when he finally went. So I really do understand what you and your family are going thru with your Granny! I will pray,I pray all the time anyway I'm a firm believer in it and I will definitely include you and your Granny in this prayer of mine!! I will pray God's Peace be upon you,as you experience this trial,and you will feel his Blessed Arms around as the end comes! I am so sorry my Brother that this has come upon you. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.Pm me anytime!! Sister Pat:sad2: :sad2:
