Farewell, GG

Our trip to Oklahoma brought us the opportunity to say a final goodbye to Mike's grandmother. GG as she was known to the kids went to the emergency room this morning with shooting pains up her side. She's been struggling with congestive heart failure for the past few months and has been in and out of the hospital. When we arrived in OKC she was just getting out of a rehab facility and was on the waiting list for an assisted living facility.

I spent the day at the hospital with my former mother-in-law. Grandmother thankfully has been out of it since she came to the hospital in quite a bit of pain. Turns out her kidneys had failed. She has a DNR on file and right now is slowly winding down to departing this life. Mike's brother is at the hospital now. I've come home to sleep. Gayle will head home, clean up and then go back to the hospital. If she makes it through the night we'll head over again tomorrow.

I'm glad we got to see her alive and well. She was a feisty sometimes maddening old gal and we'll miss her.
