all quiet on the western front...

10:15 Monday morning – the start of what feels like an even longer week than the one before it.

My grandfather passed away last night. My mother’s father. My brother called to give me the news (he still lives at home) because my mother was at the nursing home with my grandmother and aunts and uncles.

Sadly, it was not a surprise. Honestly – it was more of a relief. My grandfather’s not been well for several years now – suffering complications from diabetes. Had both of legs amputated a few years back. Very confused most of the time. Doesn’t recognize most family members.

If anything, I told GB last night, it feels like he’s already been gone for a long time.

If anything, now perhaps my mother can get some rest. Being the family nurse has become a full-time job – another one on top of the one she’s already got.

Now, if anything, my grandfather can move on to a better place where he can tell stories all day long and play his guitar all night.


All in all, a mostly quiet weekend lost in a fog of sleep, CNN and studying and realizing that the stress of last week is now settling into a cold.

My body aches...I just want to crawl back into bed.
