hey guys, it's been a while since i last spoke. i been holding in a lot of pain recently and its coming to a head tonight. i been watching my grandpa's health slowly deteriorate into the point he is now. i have seen this before last year with my late great grandma.

today my mom started to have to find the durable power of atterny paperwork and we need to get a hold of hospiss to care for him. it's like history is repeating itself.

So to let you know whats happened, my grandfather had a massive stroke late last year, before that he used to smoke a lot which is what clogged the arteries to his brain that lead to his stroke. the doctors said he most likely wasn't going to live, but he was a stubborn and proved them wrong. he went to rehab and was doing fantastic he was walking starting to talk and read and he looked great. all of the sudden maybe a month or two ago he started to decline. he stopped walking, he hardly talks, and now he doesn't want to eat.

i keep holding onto the hope he would just be stubborn and get better but that hope is vanishing.

tonight about an hour ago my grandma woke me up crying. i let her into my bed and let her cry for a while and i calmed her down and helped her get back to sleep. now i am wide awake and have been crying ever since she fell asleep because i don't want her to see me break down.

i just felt i needed to post this because i know many of you will listen and that's what i really need right now. and my family needs all your prayers
