I jumped on the scale this morning and found I was up a couple of pounds from weigh in day. I can handle that! I’m sure those pounds will come off in no time if I get back on track. Yesterday was better than the day before and so on. :) Today, I will try to stay 100% on track.
My grandma is losing her battle. She has diabetes and her incisions are not healing (after 9 weeks) and the doctors said her insides (she had heart surgery) aren’t healing either. Her kidneys started to fail yesterday and the doctor said this is it. They made the decision to slowly take away support. She has said from the beginning that she is just ready to go. We know this is what is best. She wouldn’t have quality of life if she had made it anyways. Before, they told her she needed to keep fighting because she could get better. But now as her body is shutting down, it’s time to face the truth. God is saying that is time and he knows what is best. I’ve never lost a grandparent yet, but I’m trying to find joy in the sorrow, knowing that she is going to a better place.
