Monday morning, at 0:11, My grandfather took his last breath, and passed away in the Artificial coma he was put in 2 hours prior. Grandfather has lost the battle against his Brain tumor. This has been a big loss to our family, but we are relieved as well as sad. Grandpa didn't ' had a life' the last months, Being in the hospital for a long while and fighting this tumor we didn't even know about till a few months back. He had but one wish, to die at home. So a month ago he got fired from the hospital and went home as he wished, The first week he was still mobile, but the last three weeks he has been bound to the bed. not being able to move anymore. He began to lose the abilities to speak properly, and soon his lungs began filling up with fluid. it was then that the doctor had to calm him down with some meds, and brough him to sleep, My parents where there at that point and soon me and my brother were there to to say goodbye. His breathing became staggered and soon.. he died. With my grandma. my father ( his son) mother and two grandchildren around him.. He died knowing he was loved. by our entire family. and we will say goodbye to him this friday. Needless to say.. I am torn in emotions I feel sad, upset, Relieved, happy, but most of all proud.
I am proud of how he was able to overcome so many things during my life. He has been to the hospital so many times, for so many things. Heart lungs muscles and way more. The man truly had battle spirit, But that was also because of my grandma. who took care of him the best ways she could. If she had not done that we feared he was dead years back. She dressed him, cleaned him, Made his food made sure he took his meds, pricked him every meal for his diabetus and more. They loved eachother very much and were but a few months short to being maried 65 years.
My grandfather died at the age of 86, and I will remember him as the grumpy, but kind hearted man he was. He was more then my grandfather, He was my friend, my buddy. and I certainly will miss him dearly.
Some of you already know this news. But.. I just wanted to write this out, if you read this all then thank you for taking your time. And if you feel worried for me and want to talk to me you know how to reach me, but. Know that I am okay, I am spending these days with my family, We cry, we laugh, we joke, we memorize. We will be fine, We knew this would happen sooner then later.
So. Dear Grandpa. Rest in Peace
