Sad News...

So, Friday 1st of all I was still feeling kinda sick after I finished my Z-pack mostly my ear feels stopped up-etc. I once again went to the Dr. while my husband stayed home-I'm on my second round of diff. antibiotics now. I got home we (Hubby,Son,and I) ate lunch and soon after I got a call from my dad -My grandma died...
You might remember me mention about how on Thanksgiving evening I got a call about her falling and breaking her leg here. Since then she's been 1st in the hospital then in a nursing home. This was the 2nd time she was in a nursing home -I know she was hoping it would be temporary again. But,honestly I don't know if she would've made it back home this time I guess in a way it's better that it ended this way instead of having to make that decision. She was 92 so she lived a pretty long life-I guess it was kind of expected but, then kind of not-She seemed to be getting better-But...
At least we all got to see her for my cousin's wedding-I talked about that here. And in some way it seemed she was maybe holding out for the wedding since my grandma's friend's grandson is the one who married my cousin- Our families have been close friends for a long time and now we're related by marriage! My grandma's friend called me Friday after everyone got the news-Made me cry some more. The funeral is expected to be at the end of this week.
Even though it was somewhat expected it's still sad of course. There's many memories I have of her- I even lived with her my Senior year of High school(Since my dad had to move for a job and I wanted to finish my last year in the same town I lived in since 3rd grade) Needless to say it was interesting a teenaged girl living with her grandma-We butted heads a lot but, I think some was because we were a lot alike. I'll mention this kinda funny memory here since it would be kinda provocative for a memorial service- So, those that grew up in the 90's probably remember the phrase "Mean people suck" became popular then -I got a little poster to put up in my room with that phrase. My grandma -Had a fit about that-Saying she wouldn't allow it in her house! When I asked why ? She was taking it literally and saying some words I never expected to hear from my grandmother's mouth -Ill just say! It is kinda funny now.- That's just her though caring-(helping to take care of me) and also stubborn -say what's on her mind kind of person.
So, that's what all will be going on this week -It's kind of weird going through the week somewhat normal until the funeral and everything.
And sorry it seems I've been kinda a Debbie Downer lately maybe that's why not a lot of people read/comment my blog?
