    My Dad's mother is my last living GrandParent, she is 85 and is having Congestive Heart Failure symptoms. My sister says I need to call her, my sister is a nurse and has been keeping an eye on Mamommie since my parents have been out of state traveling.
    I know death is a part of life, but having grown up with Great Great Grandparents, it is really diffucult to be down to one Grandparent.
    I hate that I have not been able to get home to see her the last few years, I planned to go home next March for her Birthday.
    Our family has had a lot of tragedy at this time of year, so it kind of makes it extra hard to deal with.
    In 96 my Mother's Mom passed away the Day after Christmas, then 3 weeks later my middle Uncle, then exactly 2 years later my oldest Uncle and my Great Uncle the same day. The following year on my dad's Birthday (Jan 16) I lost my son and my Grandmother (Dad's) had a stroke, then that April my mom's father.
    My dad didn't want to celebrate his Birthday for a couple years after this (both Uncles died 2 days after his birthday).
    This was actually the first year in a long time I was in the Cristmas Spirit, now I am kinda depressed. [​IMG]

    Karen, it's been a rough road for you, losing all those loved ones. I don't have any grandparents and my mother is gone, both my adoptive and my biological and various other relatives. The day is fast approaching when I will be the older relative, not just one of the kids. I didn't know you lost your son. That's truly awful for you, I know. Then to top it off, the diminishing light this time of year can make you feel blue as well. Wish I could offer some solace. [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! BirdBoy88, I am praying for you as well.
    Cyn, Thanks, it helps just knowig I have support , yeah it was hard to lose my son, but then I look at what my Grandaddy went through before he died, he lost 3 kids and my grandmother and he kept going. I drew some strength from that.

    Sending HUGE hugs your way. I lost both of my grandmothers 2 weeks apart when I was pregnant with my first child.

    Give her a call. [​IMG]

    Well, my mom called me yesterday and they put Mamommie in the Hospital. Her heart is racing and she is having trouble breathing.
    My parents are in MO, my Dad goes out there and works a couple months each year for extra $$, they are headed back this way today, they will be here tomorrow and depending on how bad she is, they may leave and head on home saturday.

    I guess it's somewhat of a blessing that I am not working, in case I have to make an emergency trip home.

    Please still pray, I know that whatever happens will be God's Will, but prayers are very welcome.
