Default Bad day...

Called home last night to check out some plans with Dad, and found out that my Great Aunt Virginia was having trouble. She'* been in a nursing home since earlier this year. Last night she started having abdominal pains and vomitting. Dad said she was probably going to go within a week or two.
When he called again this morning, he said it was a matter of tonight or tomorrow.
By the time I got to the home, she was already going. Internal bleeding. She stopped responding about half an hour before I got there, and I sat with her and my parents for about an hour before she passed, around 10:30.
I was going to go out Sunday to visit her.

I'm sorry for your loss, Brian, if she was anything like your family, I'm betting she was a hoot to be around.

She'* in a good place now...

Oh man, that really sucks. It'* great to have the luxury to be next to her before she passed, even if she couldn't speak. I'm not really good at this stuff, but just keep a good head, man. If you need anyone to talk to, you've got my number. Sorry for your loss, keep on keeping on.
