My beloved grandmother passed away on April 4, two and a half months after being diagnosed with CC. After her diagnosis, and a stent procedure, she seemed almost like her pre-diagnosis self. At least both of us at times had that feeling, although she was in hospice care, with 24 hour caregivers and a walker. But I am glad that she had that feeling for a while and that she was able to cook which she loved so much and enjoy life before her decline about 2-3 weeks before she passed.
I miss her so much. I am very thankful that I was able to celebrate her 87th birthday with her and that I was with her when she passed away. I do find myself now wishing that CC had not come into our lives and that our plan to move her to the same town as me so that she could enjoy her great-grandchildren more would have come to fruition. But that was not meant to be. So I find peace instead in the fact that we were able to spend the last months of her life talking about our lives together and that I was able to help in making her passing as comfortable as possible.
I have not posted here since Nan’s initial diagnosis but knowing that this community is here has been a comfort to me. I will do what I can to continue to create awareness of CC. Thanks to all who have helped me on this continuing journey. I know that what I need is time to heal and to share my memories of my extraordinary grandmother with my children.
