It has been a tough week. DH's Grandma went into the hospital last week. She died this morning. As she was 88, it was not completely unexpected, but she was, up until last week, taking care of herself and her 2 adult disabled children.
What made it hard was trying to help my MIL (the health care proxy) cope. FIL is no help...he has...uh....issues. It is also hard because Grandma is only, was only, 6 years older than my dad. Today, I went to the ICU to give MIL and DH moral support. It was so darn difficult, because I spent so much time in ICUs with Geri (my sister, for those new to the board). I am sober enough to know that today was not about me, but human enough to know that I still am healing over being my sister's proxy and giving the request to terminate the ventilator.
Ah...this too shall pass.
