My Grandpa is dying.
    #2313690 - 02/08/04 06:27 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Death.

We will all meet it one day, but if someone is dying.. Its so weird.
Bam you're alive, bam you're dead.

I will miss the guy, he teached me how to ride a bike.
And i used to play with the toy soldiers he had in his house.

I here by pay my respects, and hope to find some people who have been or are in this situation.

sorry to hear that. I remember well how i felt when my grandparents died, they are all gone now- but they grew old and lived a long life and got to see their genes carried on by children and grandchildren.
Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife. The first question was, "Did you bring joy?" The second was, "Did you find joy?" I think most grandparents easily can answer yes to both questions.

I hope he can still understand a bit of what i will say to him.
I want to make his journey an easy one. His live was not all joy, especially the last few years.

So i hope i can share some personal feelings with him.

ya dude, this kind of stuff sux. my grandmother was pretty bad with emphazima...i moved in with my grandparents, well basically cuz i needed a place to stay but more importantly to help out my grandpa and be with her for a while before she left. she lasted about 3 weeks after i moved in, the last week she was on hospice care....it was very depressing, but at the same time she was so happy that i was there with her for her last few days. we were very close..i remember as a kid id love to take little trips to mamaws house and stay the weekend. she would let me take all the blankets and sheets and lay them over tables and turned over furniture, making little "forts" so i could play with my army men and such....my parents hated it when i did that. we would stay up late at night playing go fish and eating nutter butters (ha, i loved those things) watching her die was the hardest thing ive delt with to date. the day she died we all knew it was her last from the start. her breathing was very irregular, and she wouldnt really respond to our voices except for a squeeze on the hand or a short muffled cough noise....she was surrounded my people she loved that day. her husband, her son, and two of her grand kids. we all took turns sitting by her side, talking with her and such. im pretty sure she could still hear us for the most part. she actually died while i was holding her hand. i watched the life in her body just fade away, breathless and motionless....at this point i didnt really know what to feel. i was sad, but after a while of feeling sorry for myself i got upset at how selfish i was being. then i kinda felt happy in a way, and a little envious. it was her time, and she was in alot of pain, and now all that was over. she finally got to see whats on the other side for real, as opposed to the many ideas we all have as to what lies on the other side. if there is a god, if sure she is by his/her side as i speak. maybe she got reincarnated into the future first female president. (she always joked about that)or maybe nothing happened...but either way, she now knows. and i envy her for that

look, i know it sounds a little cliche.....but life really is juat a part of life. we all gotta go through it someday, and we all gotta watch others go through it from time to time. all we can really do is try our best to to make the trip feel a little less like its a solo one-way flight. (even though that about pretty sums it up) people often feel very alone and afraid once death comes knocking, and this is pretty much expected. but just by you being there for them in their last days (assuming this is an expected death, as in my grandmas case. this cant always apply to sudden deaths) really helps them to make the transition a little smoother.

and if my grandma is in fact up in heaven with god partying it up with the angels every night, i know for a fact she wouldnt want me beating myself up over death.she would want me to keep on living every day as happy as can be. she was just that kind of person. so, i do as she asks....i mean i do miss her greatly, but she never allowed me to pout :grin: that was just nonsence! you never get anythhing done that way!

ha! i can still hear those words like she just shouted them off....writing all this stuff really got me thinking....i do miss her alot

Sorry to hear about your loss.  It's never easy.  I only have one surviving grandparent left and she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  All my grandparents have died to cancer and it runs like wildfire thru my family. :sad:

We're all here for you when you need us hun.

You're a sweetie  :wink:

But he has not passed on yet.

I spoke too him, as much as i could. But family was there as well, and i hadn't seen him for a long time. And he used to blame me for what my mothers ex boyfriend used to do too him. Call him up and say discriminating things.

It made it hard to be the 100% whole i normally am.
I also saw one of my brothers which i had not see for years.
So as you can understand emotions were mixed and it was pretty hard to find a fitting way of acting towards the people who where there.

But i hope when he dies he will be able to understand what i think of him.

He was happy to see me, but he was really tired. He looked terrible, which was also a bit schoking since the last time i saw him he looked 97% better.

I also heard something that he had a decease (could be cancer, they were not clear at all), but what it is doesn't really matter..

Thanks for responding muffin,  :smirk:

Both of my grandfathers died of cancer.... one from being an avid pipe smoker and the other got mesothelioma from working with asbestos years ago. I was actually taken out of school to watch the latter die. Talk about emotions...

I'm sure he realizes that you love him and all the hardships that you both may have played a part in, have passed.

The fact that you showed up to see him when he is suffering proves, in itself, that you care dearly for him.

i know how it is...BAM life BAM death...its the process and i've had to go through it recently w/ a good friend. keep your head up...it is hard. but you know...you learn a lot about life when you face death. you learn to appreciate and love life and the people around you and if you carry that appreciation with you wherever you go then you will live a great life.

hey man, just know that your grandpa is headed to an awesome place with nothing but love, total acceptance.  Hes gonna be happy as fuck.

I have died and let me tell you man, it is the most kick fucking ass thing ever.  Please do not be afraid of death...it is being set free, at last. [unless you have to come back  :rolleyes: ]

keep ya head up dawg, its like you said:

Quote:

Bam you're alive, bam you're dead.




you will be with him soon enough, before you know it.  Dont be surprised if when he does pass...he comes to you in a dream to let you see he is doing just fine.

if you knew where your grandpa was going, you would jump for joy, i swear.  Still sad im sure, but alteast more happy than sad.  No one deserves to be sad.

oh, btw....

Thanks a lot everyone, you are appreciated.

At the moment i don't really know how to feel. I'm at work now and i know that sucks.. But for the rest i just have to be, and experience today.

Everything will be fine, i'm waiting to hear the final call. And then another special day will have happened in my life. I am happy for him, i believe his is going into an awsome state of life.

I don't know much more to say... Its confusing..  :confused:

sorry for this pain that you go through. I lost my grandfather very suddenly, and watched a close aunt battle w/ cancer and finally pass. Poetry always seemed to help me.

GRIEF

Grief reached across the world to get me,
sadness carries me across seas and countries
to your grave, my brother,

to offer the only git I still can give you----
words you will not hear.

Fortune has taken you from me. You.
No reason, nothing fair.
I didn't deserve losing you.

Now, in the silence since,
as is the ancient custom of our people,
I say the mourner's prayer,
do the final kindness.

Accept and understand it brother.
My head ches from crying.
Forever,goodbye.

- Gaius Valerius Catullus

hey man... life and death..the cycle..

It sucks to lose people :frown: .. but it's a part of life

but you can see a positive light on it

I would recommend picking up a copy of "The Tibetan Book of the Dead"

It helps everyone... dying, or the living who are dealing with death...to come to terms with it and help send them out of this world with love and understanding.. it makes the passing a lot easier IMHO.

May his spirit find peace and serenity on the other side  :heart:
Blessed be
