For those of you who’ve read my blog for a while will know that my Grandma isn’t well, her decline has been very rapid these past few weeks, and today I went to see her quite possibly for the last time.

It’s horrible watching such a bright person, normally so full of spark and life, just well – not. I’m so glad I went to see her though, I was selfishly rather terrified of it. I’m not the strongest of people at the best of times, and in a crisis or time of struggle, I’m worse! For a woman who loves her family so much it would be selfish of me not to be there.

She didn’t really wake, she moved her head and looked at me briefly, before slipping off into sleep again, I hope she saw me, and knew that I was there. It’s a horrible time for the family, she really is the ‘head’ of it, and for her to be nearly gone is just hard to imagine, it’s no shock or surprise – we knew it was coming. Knowing its going to be soon, days, perhaps even hours, is just so heartbreaking.




She really is an amazing woman, and I think if there more people like her, the world would be a much better place. She’s had an incredible life and the amount of cards an letters she’s received since becoming ill is a testament to how many people love and care for her.

She truly is a remarkable woman, and I’m incredibly lucky that she’s my Grandma.
