I think it’s so beautiful that you are there for your grandfather!!!!!!  It’s so hard caring for our loved ones as they age.  And, I have to imagine it’s difficult for them to realize their body is getting progressively weak.   …I just wanted to say how amazing of a granddaughter you are!!!

My grandfather is at a similar point in his life. He’s mentally sharp, active and mostly healthy, but he recently had a large abscess drained and also found out he had cancer. It’s making him so tired and depressed. It is hard when all your life they’ve been a symbol of strength and now you see them becoming frail or weak. It’s great that he has you… the holidays are usually harder for people, hopefully he will gain back some of his energy after all this hustle and bustle has passed.

Your grandfather sounds like such a wondeful man. I bet he has lived an amazing life so far! I can only imagine some of the stories he has to tell. He is lucky that he has such caring and understanding family members such as yourself and your parents to surround him and care for him during the holidays. (I bet he probably knows it, too…)

I hope that all of the holiday cheer is infectious and helps keep his spirits bright over the next few days!
