Sad news

I have not blogged here in a bit...We have been hit with some bad news, and then it continued with worse news and now into a stall.

My Grandfather is sick. He was diagnosed with Leukemia and from my understanding, it's a pretty aggressive form. And unfortunately with his age, there is not much of anything that we can do for it. A week ago, they gave him 2 months to a year. We have barely had time to comprehend this when he was rushed to the hospital on Sunday. The doctors did their best, but did not expect him to live the night.

He is currently on a morphine drip and family is flying in to say their goodbyes.

We are happy that he gets to say his goodbye's and that he is not in any pain. He has lead an amazing life, with a wonderful wife, 8 children, over 20 grandchildren, and great-grandchildren still coming! And he is at peace with God and read to go, if that is God's will. His room is filled with love and we know that we will see him soon.

My mom said to me the other day "We don't get to choose when we are born, we don't get to choose when we die, or even how we die. But Grampa is one of the lucky few who will be surrounded by family and love."
