My last remaining grandparent turns 98 on Tuesday. He’s staying with my uncle currently as he’s too weak to travel anymore and cannot be alone. He fell again yesterday and wound up with a broken rib which led my uncle to take him to the hospital due to having chest pains. Once there they had to place a pacemaker. He’ll be in the hospital for a few days, then transferred to a rehab center and then will be moved to an assisted living facility. He’s a few states away from me so I can’t see him but I’m mentally preparing me for the inevitable phone call I’m sure I’ll be getting sooner rather than later. I hate this preemptive feeling of grieving.
