Just got news (OT)

I just got a call that my grandpa is in a coma. He has been in the hospital for almost two weeks with pneumionia (sp)~ he also has lymphoma and has been doing chemo for that.
He was having some really rough days in the hospital (I can't do this anymore, just put me out of my pain, I just want to die, etc) and then other days he was doing alright and talking about taking a trip down to Santa Barbara in a couple months to see my brother~~
They said he could have anywhere from a few hours to a few days, they just aren't sure at this point.
Please pray that if it's his time to go that he be in no pain and pass peacefully....I have come to terms with the fact that the end may be near, and I just don't want him to suffer anymore.
I am off to the hospital now to be with my parents and my grandma...

Oh, Katie, that's rough. I hope that your grandfather isn't suffering and is resting peacefully. I have lost three different relatives in the last three months and it isn't easy, especially the grandparents! You've got so much going on right now too - not that timing is ever good, but take care.

This is such a tough time for your family. Perhpas it is time that the family have a conversation with the docs regarding your grandpa's wishes. Would he like his life prolonged? If it is decided that this is the end of the road, it is possible for it to be done gracefully and without pain. Ask about end of life orders. Is everybody in your family at the same place? Sometimes there is somebody afraid to let go.

My prayers are with your family at this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather but it sounds like he is ready .. I know my grandfather told us one Christmas he would not be there for the next Christmas and even though he looked fine to me at the time he was right he died in March ..
It is never ever easy to lose a loved one .. but really hard to lose a Mom, Dad or Grandpa ..
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Ahnold sends you a cuddle and a lickie .. .
Take care .
