Believe it or not, 1 hour prior to these photos I was in a car accident. Rush hour traffic on I-15 came to an abrupt stop and I noticed the car behind me wasn’t slowing down fast enough. Next thing I knew it I was rear ended and shaking tremendously. Blocking traffic and having no idea what to do. Daryl sweetly told me to not panic and to pull over to the side. Luckily, Daryl and I were both wearing our seat belts and no one in either vehicle was injured. After making sure everyone was alright, I called the police and our visit to go see grandma at the hospice facility was delayed another hour.
For those of you who don’t know my grandma, she’s the sweetest lady on this planet. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor when I was very young and her dementia has gotten worse ever since. For the past year I’ve spent 4-8 nights a month watching her and spending time with her at my parents house. Most grandchildren aren’t as fortunate as my sister and I and don’t get to bond so closely with their grandparents. Over the past few months her health conditions have gotten worse and there’s nothing we can really do but wait for her to pass away. A couple of days ago, we visited her at the hospital and she could still mouth things.. last thing she said to me was I love you.
I know she will be passing any day now but it’s really hard to see her go. My sister and her have had a very special friendship that I’ve cherished watching. I know that it’s time for Heavenly Father to take her to the other side where she will feel no more pain. I love her so much and I want to thank those of you who have sent me sweet emails about mentioning her in your prayers.. it means a lot.
