Even more bad news :(

Well it's a Monday - so I guess i should have expected bad things

Finally over my stuff being gone and I get a call at work from my mom - seems that my grandma has had a heart attack

they are in Toronto and I am here - i can't go see her - and I'm scared she might not be there when I go home for Christmas

I grew up with my Grandma - after my grandpa died she moved in with my family
I have always been close to her - I was the first grandchild - so she and I have spent a lot of time together

She is a strong strong woman and if anyone could recover from this - it's her - after all she came to this country with 6 small children and preggers with the 7th all on her own
She raised an incredible bunch of caring, loving, considerate and successful kids in the not so great area of Toronto

I hate being so far away from my family

I hate how crummy things all seem to happen at once
i hate not knowing what's happening

and I hate the fact that one day I am going to have to say good bye to her - and that when the time comes I may not be able to cause I'm here and she's there

it makes me sad to think that she might not be around to see me get married or have kids

I wish my Mom was here to give me a hug
it's been a bad month

PHONE YOUR GRANDPARENTS TODAY and remind them how much you love them

Your grandma sounds like an incredible woman, grandparents ARE awesome people that are not to be taken for granted... I wish only the best for you and your family.
I know how you feel with your grandparents being so far away, mine are in Nova Scotia. My grandma raised me until I was three years old because my parents weren't able to do so, so there is also a maternal connection.
Im going to go make that phone call

I'd totally call mine today to tell them I loved them if they weren't all dead.

Weird coincidence, my nana passed away a year ago this week.

damn, she made the best cookies EVER.

i had an entire year that seemed like that, it was one thing after another, and just when i thought it could finally be over, i got hit with two more upsetting things.
but what i have learned is that the human body can be amazing when it wants to be and can survive anything when it has the will. if your grandma is as wonerful a person as you say she is, she'll be ok. my dad, the strongest person i know and my personal hero, was on the brink of death, beat it, then had a 50% chance, and beat the shit outta that and all is clear for now.
its terrible when bad things happen, but its beautiful when we remember how much we love others and how loved we are.
what helped me alot was to not think about how the person might not be there, but how they have been there. we never know what tomorow brings, so why not dwell in the happiness of it all.

My grandfather passed away when I was in my teens, my father passed away last year.

If you have a chance I'd go see them before they pass on.

I never got the chance to say anything to my grandfather who was in a coma or to my Dad who had a heart attack while swimming.

Don't take time, life or your family for granted.

My wishes are with you Maryah.

^ I'm like Winston, I never got to say goodbye to my Dad either and it still kills me inside - I'm sure it always will.

Seriously Maryah...just go. Put in on your credit card and worry about it later - this is more important than money. I really hope that she ends up being okay *hugs*

Its really hard when you live so far away. my grandparents used to live in alberta i lost my grandma when i was 7 and my grandpa just last november. I made sure that my mom could make it out there to see him as much as posible and to tell him that i loved him very much each time i talked to him. I was lucky enough to get a trip in with my dad when he was still up and around. it was really great for the both of us. we drove all the way there and back just for a day with him. it really is worth it to make the effort i know i still regret not talking to my grandma when she was sick although i was young and scared because she was very Ill.if you cant make it out there make the phone call for sure tell her everything you value about her and all that you love her for.
even if your miles away you dont have to regret not being there if you have said all that you can to her. But yah I hope your grandma gets through this and that your ok too. take care.
god just thinking about my grandparents is making me tear up.
big hugs to you maryah
