My grandma's sister, is dying of cancer. She was just diagnosed a month ago. She was put on hospice last wednesday, last Wednesday she was up, talking, eating etc. Today she is non responsive and having labored breathing with periods of apnea. This woman has been like a grandma to me and like a mom to my mom. My moms mom lives in Florida n we live in Illinois, so she's always been there for us even when my grandma couldn't be. She's been such a great role model to me. I just cannot believe this is happening and so fast. My grandma who I'm extremely close with is 92 yrs old and bless her heart she is still running around like she's 70. She was supposed to be coming on Friday but now that her sister has taken a turn for the worst she's coming in tomorrow. I'm praying over and over that she holds on until my grandma gets here so she can see her and say her goodbyes. I kept telling my aunt today please just hang on, she's coming tomorrow. We love you so much and she loves you so much, she's gonna come visit you tomorrow. So please I'm praying that please let her make it another day until my grandma can be with her sister.
Sorry to be such a downer today but this has just been so hard on myself but especially my mom and my grandma and I worry about my grandma, I want her to be okay.
Thanks for listening.

HUGS!!!!! I'm so sorry. I hope your grandma gets here in time. I hate to hear of people losing friends and families around the holidays...just doesn't seem right.

I have a good friend who's cousin passed yesterday morning after battling cancer I think. It was so sad, because day before the cousin decided she wanted off the breathing machine and wanted to go home. She knew her time was coming...She made her last FB post that said "Getting off these machines and going home and then to God." Breaks my heart.
