Hey everyone...I won't be blogging for a few days.

Not only is my dad still in the hospital (he has been there since Saturday with a staph infection in his blood), my grandpa was in the hospital too. He went in with the flu and then they found a bowel obstruction. He had surgery on Sunday or Monday and had just gotten out of ICU yesterday morning.

Then I was taking my sister back to her place and my dad called. My grandpa died last night.

He is the first grandparent I have lost, and this will be the second funeral I have been to in my life. I missed my great-grandma's funeral in 03 because I was in France at the time and couldn't get back home.

So anyway, the funeral is on Monday we're thinking. My dad is really upset because he can't help do anything since he's stuck in the hospital himself. Right now I'm just in shock and pretty sad. This really has been the worst Christmas ever.

    I am very sad to hear about your loss, and it makes it even harder when it is around the Holidays.

    I try to look at Death as a new beginning for the deceased person, although we miss them on Earth, they get to be in Heaven, which is like the greatest vacation ever. I kind of think of it as my friend or family member is on a trip- and I should be very happy for them, even though I miss them. Also, we are lucky to have good people in our lves, even if it is too short a time,
    I know so many people that have very little family, or have had family members that were not good to them, and it makes me realize how fortunate I am.

    Best wishes for a better 2013!

    Aw honey I'm so sorry, that's horrible. I can't imagine how upset you are. I wish I could do more, but if you need someone to talk to, I'm always here.

    Take good care of yourself at this difficult time.
