I really don't know what to write, or frankly, even why I'm writing this.  

Maybe I'm hoping that it will somehow help to vent a bit. Maybe I'm trying to make sense of it and get over the shock to prepare myself for what's coming. I don't know. All I know is that there's a pile of work staring at me and the house looks like a freakin' disaster zone but I can't seem to do much of anything but sit here and feel like crap. I thought it would be good to work to get my mind off things, but that's not working out too well.

I knew they wouldn't be around forever but it still comes as a shock.  And both of them at the same time - well, it's just too much.

Both of my grandmothers are up north and I'm living down south now.  There's not a whole lot I can do other than get news updates from the family up there.

It's a horrible feeling sitting here waiting for news...and every time the phone rings you're wondering if that will be the call.

My one grandmother is very close.  It will most likely be in a matter of days.  The other one, no one knows, but it's not looking good and I don't expect it to be too long without a miraculous change sometime soon.  Of course I'd love for that to happen but I have to be realistic too and it just doesn't look good.

Well- I don't know what else to say and I'm starting to tear up now.  Thanks for listening guys.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
