My Grandma just had a stroke, and she is rapidly loosing some of her mental abilities. She is quite old, and I feel terrible but I keep praying that she will die quickly instead of being ill in a nursing home or a hospital. A place like that would kill her in a far worse manner.
My dog has already lived longer then any other one we have had of this particular breed. After so many years of being a completely hyperactive dog she has slowed down with arthritis, even moving enough to lay down is difficult for her. I can see in her eyes that she is still fighting, still happy to be alive but I don't know for how much longer.
Aside form all of this my Mother who is my rock and my strength in the worst of times is having problems too. Her legs are so messed up that she is in almost constant pain and has great difficulty walking.
I have been doing everything I can be to be cheerful, helpful, and strong in this situation; but I'm not made of stone, nor would I want to be. Sometimes I find myself typing emo entries like this one, and crying very easily during any tv show or movie. I just need to keep this up and only allow myself to get upset in public when something bad actually happens, instead of simply looming ominously overhead.
