Inevitable

Today, my 71-year-old grandmother survived cancer for the fourth time. I'm grateful, but at the same time I find myself feeling sad that she will soon be gone. She has COPD and constantly mentions that she is going to die soon. I wish I could build a time machine and go back to before she became terminally ill. FML
I agree, your life sucks 905
You deserved it 95

Same thing different taste

We all die sooner or later and there is simply no way to predict when that will happen for any of us. The best we can do is to cherish our loved ones while we have them without stressing over how long they will live… My Dad died a few years ago and I miss him. But he will always be there in my memories to the degree that part of me is him. My Dad lived to 89. He outlived his cardiologist who thought Dad had about a year to live - Dad lived about 10 years past his cardiologist… And then I have had cancer myself, it is scary and you fear it returning. But there are many kinds of cancer and medical care now is much, much better than years ago… So be thankful you have a grandparent you love and who loves you. Treasure the memories and don’t be afraid to make new ones.
