It was situated on her main artery in her brain so it was very serious. They're going to try and fly her back to the hospital near us so we can say our goodbyes as they turn off the life-support. I'm so grief stricken, and I feel horrible because I'm trying to release the emotions and it's the computer that lets me do it. I probably look to others like I don't care. My heart has been ripped out of my chest and it's never going to be the same. :'(
oh honey I am very sorry to hear, I wish I could say or do more for you to help you release some of your pain
I dont want to go into how i have lost close family because I feel it just takes away from You the opportunity to grieve by letting you say everything you want so it doesnt build up.
I will light a candle for your nan and say a little prayer, tomorrow my kids and i are going for a walk I am going to buy a small bouquet of(little yellow?) flowers and release them in the river. Its not much but I hope it helps.
I am truly sorry for your loss *hugs*
