So, it's been about a week and somehow Grandma's still with us. I've been up to see her a few times. According to her doctor she's only got weeks left (though just how many weeks is anybody's guess); she's supposed to go home at some point with full-time hospice care.

All told this has been...different than when my other grandmother died. Maybe because it's a longer wait for the other shoe to drop this time. Or maybe because I'm still grasping some sliver of hope that once Grandma gets out of the hospital maybe she'll start to do a little better. And I know part of it is all the stupid fighting going on between my dad's siblings. The one time in their lives that they ought to be together more than ever, yet their stupid egos and whateverelsehaveyou are only driving them further apart. Especially considering one of Dad's sisters died last year.

Bad enough that Grandma's slowly dying, but does Dad's side of the family have to break too?
