May 8th, 2008

My Grammie is in hospital. She was admitted because she kept falling down. She broke her pelvis while in hospital. That kind of forced immobility is usually a death sentence of pneumonia for the elderly.

Today I am antsy, and just have an oppressive feeling of dread. The weather is matching my mood.

I’m afraid to call her. She was so disoriented the last time I did, and I’m not sure she knew who I was. But I’m afraid someone else will be answering.

I don’t want to know.

I’m going to cry now.

Update: I did call and there was no answer. I called my BFF from highschool and asked her to drop by after work and call me. The dread feeling lifted around 4 pm, and I got a call around 8 pm, saying that Grammie was discombobulated, but alive and kicking, and making funnies. I still don’t know what gave me that awful feeling of dread.

Brad’s grandmother died yesterday. We didn’t even get the chance to tell her we’re going to use her name for our daughter’s middle name. I thought Brad had told her and when I found out he hadn’t in time I was kind of upset. I was surprised when he said that she’d find out eventually, I didn’t think he believed in that sort of thing.

Most of the time it seems it is SO easy for those dying or near death, especially if they have accepted their fate.. It’s US…The ones that love them that feel the pain..

I hope Grammie is peaceful!

Do the hard thing. Call her. Talk to her. Don’t take the chance that you might miss her by not calling. And if the news is bad …. well, we’re here for you.

Can you not call the Nurses Station on her floor and ask as to how Grammie is doing – or where she’s gotten off to? Maybe she’s off for tests.

Call. For you. If she’s disoriented that’s okay. Tell her you love her.

Have a good cry. It’s good for the soul.

Alive and kicking is an excellent plan of action.

It’s the thinking that is the worst. And those horrible feelings of dread.
