    So glad you shared your thoughts with us and glad you were able to visit with your grandmother for maybe the last time.

    My mother died of a brain tumor.  I still remember after staying most of the day with her in intensive care, leaving to get a bit of food with a friend.  Her eyes followed me for the last time, as I left the room.  By the next day, she was in a 6 month coma.  

    If you get to see the x-rays which have undoubtedly been taken, it will make signing a do not resuscitate order easier.  

    Hold her hand, hug her gently, talk to her, kiss her check and help her die in peace.  If she enjoyed music, try to get some via radio, recording or live performance into her limited world.  

    You have shown yourself to be a worthy descendent.  Even though she didn't see much of you lately, she treasured the times you were with her and may sense your presence more than you know.  

    Sending you cyber {{{hugs}}} and strength.
