@MsGinkgo:  Oh I am so sorry to hear that. Serious health issues and unexpected troubles are never easy to deal with (no matter your age). I pray your family is able to support him and lend one another strength. And I hope he doesn’t give up…he may surprise you all yet! 🙂

I am so sorry 🙁 The important thing to remember is: don’t give up on him, and don’t let him give up on himself! Over the last 10 years, my grandfather suffered a major heart attack, multiple strokes, a broken hip and pneumonia countless times as well as several family tragedies. He lost his independence, but he survived it all with a smile on his face. There were times when he was down on himself, but the family rallied around him and cheered him on. Just try to stay positive around him and praise him for all the progress he is making along the way.

I’m really sorry sweetie. I lost my gpa recently, my best advice is just to do what you can to keep his spirits up. Visit asap, or call, let him know how much you love him. At 98.5 yrs old the fact that he survived the stroke means he’s a fighter. He won’t give up until it’s his time to go. Your family will come together, reminisce, laugh, cry – situations like these are very difficult but whatever happens you’ll make it through. If he does go to assisted living maybe you could go to some events with him (they usually have activities every day) and keep him company. Snuggle your FH and try not to worry too much. Praying for your family <3
