So Sad

I will be MIA for a while.  My Grandfather is dying.  He has an aortic aneurysm that is 9cm x 9cm.  That is the size of a large orange.  He needs surgery and doesn’t want it.  He told us he can’t do it again.  He had a horrible time in November when he had a triple bypass.  I don’t think he realizes that if he goes home he has 100% change of dying according to the doctor.  If he has the surgery he has a 50% chance of survival.  I am so sad, I can’t imagine him not being around.  I can’t stop crying and it is horrible.  He is going to die!  I took off work for the surgery tomorrow, but now that the surgery if off I have to go to work.  I need the time off for when he passes away!  God, why is this so hard!  My eyes are burning from crying!  I just don’t want him to die…I know I sound like I am whining, but it is WAY worse knowing that it is happening.  My Grandmother died all of a sudden, she was fine one day and dead the next.  I always wondered if it would be better to know, it’s not!  No one can tell him what to do, none of us (I have a large family) want to tell him to do it, I mean there is a 50% he could die in the surgery.  I know if it was me I would tell everyone tonight I loved them, say my goodbyes and tommorrow I would roll the dice and have the surgery.  50% of survival is way better odds the 100% chance of death!

Oh in better news,my good friends Edwin and Kim got a baby today, a little tiny 6 pounder, 6 days old.  They are calling him Zack!  I am so very happy for them and don’t know if I can wait a month to meet him!

    Lisa, OMG, I am SO sorry. How awful. 😦 I lost my grandpa in February 2008, as you know. I think that I would “roll the dice” and have the surgery, too. But of course no one can make the decision about that except for him. I hope that peace will be with him and with all of you during this awful time.
