Things have been rough lately.
My grandfather died back in April, while my great aunt doesn't look like she'll last much longer.
I'm really not sure what else to say.
My Grandfather's death was unexpected, but at the same time he had so many health problems, that we honestly expected this.
Doesn't make it any easier.
the situation with my aunt is worse.
about a year ago, she had a stroke.
she went through PT, and managed to make it out of the hospital in time for her 89th birthday.
barely a week after she was back home, she had another stroke.
this time it was worse.
she's spent nearly a year in a care home, and recently, her breathing got shallow and her condition deteriorated.
This one...is really not something I want to deal with.
for many years, I was the closest thing my aunt had to a grandchild, or at least until her own son had a kid.
I...I really don't know how to feel.
I accept the inevitability of death.
But that doesn't mean I have to like it.
