So on Monday my great-aunt Tommie passed away. Then on Wednesday my great-aunt Nora had heart problems that put her in the ICU. Then last night, my dad called and told me that my great-aunt Clara had a stroke and was also in the ICU. Two of my Grandma's sisters in ICU and her sister-in-law passed away. My Grandma is 93. I am really worried about how this news will impact her. My Aunt Clara and my Grandma are very close. Aunt Clara lived about a mile from my Grandma her whole life. They go to the same church. Aunt Clara and Uncle Harold (who passed away a few years ago) always sat in the pew right behind us. I think this news right after the first two tramatic events may be too much for my poor Grandma. She is my last remaining grandparent. If I loose her it will be like loosing my Grandpa all over again.
And the thought that keeps going through my head is that if I loose her now, she will never get to know any babies that I might have in the future. One of my big reasons to push for having a baby now was so that my Grandma would get to know our baby. I can't stand the thought that it may not work out that way.
Bad things happen in threes right? We have had our three (and in 3 days no less). Please let us be finished!
