Mr. Macchiato's Grandma (98 and in Ohio) has not been awake since Friday and this morning there was no output in her cath bag. Hospice told my Mother-in-law that it wouldn't be long before Grandma passes. When Mr. Macchiato was a little boy he used to tell his Grandma that he loved her so much that he was going to have the biggest and bestest funeral for her that ever was. It really tickled her and some years back she gave Mr. Macchiato the bible that his Grandpa had given her and told him that she was holding him to that promise from when he was a little boy. We were prepared for him to make arrangements to leave anytime.
My Grandma (95 and in Seattle) has been in the hospital and I just got a call from my Mom. She's not going to make it and my aunts and uncles are all flying in to Seattle tonight.
We are scrambling. I've been sick with the flu but am now pretty much over it. However, I was at the doctor ... again... this morning and we still have not got things all figured out with my belly. We are trying to find someone who can take care of Double Shot and get him to all the places he needs to be and also take care of Benny. Needless to say, our stress level is high.
Thank you so very much!
Update: Looks like I'm pulling an all nighter. I'm headed to Denver bright and early to catch a flight to Seattle. We've got a plan and Mr. Macchiato will head out to Ohio when he needs to. My Grandma has dementia but still has moments when she is lucid. My Mom said that she woke up for a bit and she told her that I was coming and she understood and was happy. Of course, that doesn't mean she'll know who I am when I get there. Please pray that she doesn't pass before I get there.
