my husbands grandpa who is 82 is starting to fail more everyday,  my kids are very close to him,  he has demitia and is getting more confused daily,  im trying to get myself and family prepared for the day he is gone, but like losing my mom you just cant,  it hits you like a ton of bricks my husband is going to lose it completly,  he was more like a father to him,   he lost his real dad when he was 14.    grandpa scared us the other day shopping he started shaking so bad and got so cold he turned purple.  he had not eaten the day before and didnt tell anybody,  so we had to hurry and get food into him,    so now we all call and check on him alot.     praying daily he is here a little longer he misses his wife who died 17 years ago. and wants to go home.

I am sorry to hear this. I know what you are going through though, my grandma right now is going through the same thigns. We are having to watch her eat ot make sure she is eating, and we have to make sure she takes her medications.

I hope that you can prepare yourselves. Best Wishes  with your family for the tough time coming.
