My mom and dad are both dying of cancer. my mom is much worse though and we found out very suddenly. Ethan cannot comprehend why he can't see grandma. It is breaking my heart. I also have no idea for how to prepare him. We talked about her possibly going to see Jesus soon, but he thinks I mean the baby Jesus. which made me giggle a little, but it's not right. He is 3. he has limited verbal understanding.
