My condolences E90-4life.

My only surviving grandparent is my Grandmother. She's 84, pushing 85.

Unfortunately she's in hospital at the moment. She caught chest infection just after Christmas, then collapsed on New Year's day. When we found her it was obvious to us that she'd had a stroke (my Mum had one about 16years ago and my sister's a nurse) so we got her straight into hospital. Then a couple of days later she had a truly massive heart attack. Amazingly, although she still has some way to go, she was moved onto a rehab ward last week and is walking again with a zimmer.

She's a tough old boot and continues to amaze us.

From the foreword of a book, that I read (just) at my Uncle's funeral last year:

And if I go,
while you're still here ...
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
-behind a veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again
-both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest and when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart
... I will be there
