Well, it's Sunday morning, heading into afternoon. Thankfully I had booked the day off work from the library a long time ago... it's actually one of those weird signs/coincidences that is just now making sense after last night's turn of events.
There is no easy way to write this, but I figure it's about time that I add this news to my blog.
Patrick's mother is dying. It will likely happen in the next few days or week. It breaks my heart, but there is no getting around this besides some miracle. She was taken to the hospital by ambulance last night and will most likely remain in there in palliative care. I am grateful to be able to spend my last moments with her and the whole family. Everyone is holding up extremely well given the circumstances. I am so touched by everyone's strength and ability to stay level-headed and positive, especially Cindy.
I hate to see Patsy suffering and in pain, but at least for the most part she is resting/sleeping and coming in and out of awareness.
I can't get over the unfairness of these circumstances - she is only 50 years old. She has been a warrior. She is a wondeful person. I am so very sad to loose the grandmother of my future children. I hope she will soon be going to a better place to watch over us all.
Say a prayer or send some positive thoughts to her if you are so inclined.
