there's no easy way to post things like this so i'll just jump right into it.
my pop passed away today...my dad's dad.
he's been battling cancer for a few months now. they found it in his bones, but it had already progressed so far that there wasn't much they could do.
he was in his early 80's. chemo wasn't really an option. he just wasn't strong enough for it.
he was in alot of pain and as hard as it is, this was definitely the best thing.
my granny is in the hospital right now also. they were in there together. she's having trouble with her blood pressure and her heart is apparently only working at 30% capacity or something. i think alot of it is from the stress of the whole situation.
she is a very strong woman, though. she's defeated a stroke, breast cancer, and heart surgery.
they live about a mile from my parents. my dad graduated from college and moved back to avoca to be close to them after she had her stroke. he never left. he's always been right down the road from them. my pop and him have farmed together ever since. now it will all be on my dad.
the funeral will probably be on thursday. i go back to the doctor on wednesday. hopefully she'll give me the okay to go...even though my granny will have a fit. she's already given me "orders" to stay home. i would just really like to be there for my dad, most of all.
i know my pop is in a better place. i just pray for peace for my family.
