Asking for Your Thoughts and Prayers Again

My mom called me this afternoon to tell me that they think my Oma is going to die this weekend.

The funny thing is, that Oma has been sick for about as long as I can remember. When I was about 11, my mom and I went to live with her for awhile because she was so ill. She eventually pulled out of it and ended up outliving the rest of her siblings.

I dread the phone ringing because we're pretty sure she's not going to pull out of it this time. My mom told me earlier I didn't need to come, but I bought a ticket to Germany today anyway.

So, I guess what I'm saying is I won't be around for awhile.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of Oma's family. This is, of course, the most difficult time of life -- when a loved one dies.

I wish there were words to make it easier, there aren't. I wish you strength and close family and hugs.
Sorry to hear about that -- I'm definitely thinking about you!
