There won’t be any reviews for a few days and well, there haven’t been for a week because my grandfather is dying. What should have been a routine surgery two weeks ago, went tragically wrong and he has been in and out of a coma. Although he was awake for 8 hours yesterday, he suddenly crashed and now it appears there is no hope left. His wishes were not to be on life support, so I hop a plane to Florida in a few hours to tell the one person in my life that I love with all my heart–goodbye. Tomorrow my grandmother will take him off of life support with most of us by his side.
How do you prepare yourself to watch the person you love take their final breath? I’m not sure, but it is killing me to know that is just what I am going to do.
UPDATE: Thank you so much for the comments, emails and cards! I arrived in Florida and my grandfather had come back out of his coma. He is not doing well at all (still cannot breathe without the respirator and still requires the feeding tube) but he does awake and will shake his head yes and no. It was quite an emotional weekend.
I promise I will be back to posting reviews soon–I certainly have quite a long list of products just waiting for their review to be written–so stay tuned!
