Very sleepy

Saturday I went to see my in-laws and Grandpa wasn't doing well. He was in Congestive Heart Failure and having problems speaking and expressing himself. I called my husband the next day and told him as my in-laws weren't likely to do so. I knew my husband would see him on Christmas and even said I thought he would make it that long.

Tuesday night I received text messages from my MIL and husband that Grandpa was in the ER and not doing well but didn't have any information. A few hours later more information followed that he probably wasn't going to make it through the night. I was at the hospital until almost midnight and went in to work. I planned on waiting until later but called around 10am and found out Grandpa had passed away at 7am. At midnight he'd fallen asleep and during the night his breathing got more shallow. It was a good way to go.

Work let me leave for bereavement and I went home and slept before getting groceries for the next few days and heading over to my in-laws. Today was an early day as we met at the house, my SIL made everyone breakfast, we opened stockings and presents before I headed off to walk the shelter dogs then went back to eat dinner.
