    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    Thank you ladies.
    My grandad is quickly declining and it came out of NOWHERE. It started with "where is my apartment" and in a matter of 5 weeks has gone to him flooding the bathroom as he can't remember how to turn off the taps, thinking the elevator is the bathroom, shooting shaving cream all over the bedroom, running into the street, forgetting the year and the list goes on and on. My grandmother cannot cope and passed out yesterday while at her haircut appointment because she is sleeping 1 hour a night if that due to him waking her up at all hours and her fear of what he will do next. I just spoke to her and she is exhausted and defeated. She wants to put him in a home but my auntie (who is a daddy's girl) says absolutely not. I see her point but my Nan is the one who has to do this care taking and at 80 (albeit a very spry 80) she cannot keep this up.
    I am very close with him and this has been very hard, but I feel so much for my Nan.
    At the end of August I decided to spend money that I shouldn't have and went over to the UK to visit them for two weeks. I just had a feeling and literally booked it 6 days before I went. I am very glad that I did.

    I'm so sorry Narnia. That's heartbreaking. My friend's dad is going through the same thing. I just can't imagine what it's like seeing someone you've loved for so long "disappear" right before your eyes.

    I'm sorry and am sending you hugs.

    Your aunt means well but she should either step up and offer to help look after him or back off.

    I know. My aunt is one of my best friends (she is 19 years younger than my dad so more like a sister), and I know she is vey emotional and makes emotionally charged decisions. She is also a nurse and has heard/seen so many horror stories which is partially where she gets her fear. But she isn't thinking of the well being of her mom as much as she is thinking emotionally about her dad. She said to me "I feel like I have lost my dad already" and I think she is holding hope that he will get better and that this is some freak thing connected to his anemia.
    I spoke to my grandma today and told her that it is up to her and we support whatever decision she makes and are behind her 100%.
    The GP is going to see my grandad tomorrow and my aunt will be present. My grandma said she is going to bring up the idea of a home or some 24 hour care and hopefully my aunt can see some reason at that point.

    Oh, Narnia, I'm so sorry. What a horror. I agree with Dedachan. The situation is extreme and your grandmother can't cope.

    I am sorry, Narnia. Many T's & P's headed your way.

    If your Aunt continues to fight against a home, could a home nurse possibly come to the house and stay? My mom and her siblings hired a woman who stayed either days or nights when my grandmothers dementia became to much to handle. She was so helpful.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    Sending positive thoughts to you and your grandparents. I hope they find a solution to your grandfathers care needs. I use to work with the elderly (particularly dementia patients) and it can take a terrible toll on the carers.
    So sorry you're going through this.

    Now that there has been a diagnosis the idea of moving him to a home has been moved off the table. Had the diagnosis been dementia it would be different but the CT scan revealed a large brain tumor and that explains why it came on so fast. My grandmother will take care of him and spoil him, as the Dr only estimated a month.
    Thank you for all the thoughts, prayers and good vibes. It means more than you all know <3

    Narnia, I know what your family is going through. The same thing happened with my grandma about a year and a half ago. Your family is in my prayers. It's a tragic thing to see someone you love slip away so suddenly.
