My mom called me yesterday to tell me that my grandma wasn’t doing well. I live 8 hours away now, so I decided I would go visit her over this weekend coming up. My mom said she was on her way to go visit with her, I told her to let her know I loved her. She got the call when she was on the way there, that my grandma had passed away. 🙁
Darling Husband never got to meet her, she wasn’t doing well enough to come to our wedding, and we always talked about taking a trip to see her, but we never got to. 🙁
I just started a new job last week, and was worried that they wouldn’t be understanding about everything, since I’m going to have to travel back home. Luckily, they understood & are going to give me thursday & friday off, & I can resume my training Monday. Already emotional, it bothers me to have to take off from work so soon, too, but I know this isn’t something I can control.
We have 2 sugar gliders & a dog, with no friends here yet, so I don’t know if Darling Husband will be able to even go with me to the funeral. :'(
This whole thing makes me so sad because I don’t know how to handle all of this. 🙁

Oh, honey, I am so sorry. I lost my great grandmother two weeks into my new job a few years ago, and they were awesome about letting me go home and attend the funeral. I lost my grandpa last summer, right after starting my current job, and they were very compassionate about it. If I lived near you, I would totally watch your babies for you so that you could both go. <3

I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost my grandmother in August, and it is a hard thing to go through, especially if you are close.
Trust that she knows how much you loved her and continue to love her. And allow yourself time to grieve.
My best to you.

I’m sorry for your loss. Losing a grandmother is hard.
I’m sure work will be understanding. My goodness its your grandmother afterall. It will be difficult if your Darling Husband can’t go, but at least you will be surrounded by friends and family.

Thanks for all the kind words, bees. Luckily, Darling Husband was able to get the time off to go with me. We had a very quick, rough trip, but I’m so glad we were able to go – and that he was there with me.

So sorry to hear of your loss, may your heart be filled with sweet memories of your grandmother. Please don’t stress about taking the time off of work, I’m sure they’ll understand.
Sending hugs to you!

I’m so sorry. My grandmother passed in November and I found out about an hour before our baby shower, which only made it harder because I had to delay my grieving and try to go celebrate. It gets a bit easier every day. Take the time off work and do what you need to in order to help you grieve and move on.

((((HUGS)))) grandma’s are awesome. I’m so sad for you that you lost yours…. especially without Darling Husband meeing her. You will have tons of family there for the funeral, it’s really the aftermath of that all that you’ll need DH to be there for you. When your done visiting and keeping busy, it’s the middle of the night stuff …. I’m keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Lean on him ..it’s always nice to have someone’s arms around you (((HUGS)))
