We lost my dh's grandmother this morning.

 I couldn't sleep all night.  I knew something bad was going to happen.  I couldn't shake it.  I thought it would be that most of us would lose our jobs today (new director appointed by governor and she's cutting a lot).  Then, I thought, it might be that my car will cost more to fix than we figured.

No, it was neither.  My dh's grandmother passed away this morning.  Now, I feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest.  She is better off, I know that.  She's been ill for several years and really was willing herself to die the last few.  I just feel so bad for my MIL.  She lost her husband 8 years ago, but still had 2 boys to raise (raised 2 nephews).  They are grown now, so she's been taking care of her mother.  I know she feels so helpless - like there is no one for her take care of now.

Dh was fortunate to have his grandparents as long as he did.  He is 49.  She was the last one, he's very sad about that.  I lost all of mine by 22, so I know what he's feeling.

We'll be leaving for Alabama in the morning.  If you're the praying kind, please keep my MIL and family in your prayers through this difficult time.  Thank you.

I was 13 when my grandmother died. I had a dream where my grandma came into my room and told me she loved me and I would be fine.  The next day we found out she died suddenly of a heart attack at the exact moment of my dream.
