I have been tryin to find the right forum to post on, I hope its okay to post here.... I did not loose either parent, actually have not lost ne one, YET. How are you supposed to prepare yourself for death? My papaw has been very sick for a long time and on 1-28-10, just 4 days after my son was born, it all took a turn for the worse. I would never have imagined the timing for this! I am the oldest grandchild, and definetly the closest to both my mamaw and papaw and he loves my kids more than nething, only one problem...He only seen Mason one time, and he could barely keep his eyes open to look at him right before he went to the hospital. Sorry Im rambling now....

Tomorrow my papaw has surgery and is having trechiotomy done. I dont know if this is going to make him better or just a temporary fix....Either way I guess I have to face the facts, it is what it is....But back to my 1st question, how do you prepare yourself for death?

First I have to say Mason is so cute! Congrats!

There isn't really anyway to prepare for a death of a loved on. No matter how much you build up that wall its going to hurt.

Main thing I would suggest is talking to him. Talk to him about everything and anything, tell him how much of love him and if it does happen tell him 'Goodbye" or "I'll see you later"
my daddy wasn't concious when I told him this but it was the most relaxed part of that time...that one moment I knew he heard my words and he was okay to go.

If or when that time comes keep the good memories in your head let those memories become your wall

Dont be afraid to let your feelings out, talk to your family they are going through it too.

Your family will be in my T&Ps. Keep us posted!

at this point he is sedated, but not completely. The last day that I was there he opened his eyes as soon as he heard me talking. I looked at my gma and said I told ya that he could hear me! Then he started shaking his head when I asked questions.....

Today he had trech put it...I wasnt able to make it to the hospital bc of the snow, but Im also not ready too. I dont know how he is going to be with all of this going on.....I hope that he is getting better with this in, I hope and pray...Im not ready, I know its selfish, but like I told him he has a little man that he has to watch grow up....

But thank you so much!
