And the Hits Just Keep Coming

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!


  1. I am so sorry, I really hope the bad news is finished. So sorry for what you're going through, and I hope it doesn't impact your grandma too harshly.

  2. Knock that crap off! :)
    Seriously, sorry that life's been dealing out sucker punches lately. Very unfair!

    I have similar reasons for wanting a baby while family is still able to enjoy one. I lost my Dad 5 years ago this June.
