I just got a call from BB's Grandma (that we visited in CA recently), and they have placed his Grandpa into Hospice care at their Care Center...this was pretty surprising, what with his physicla health being totally fine when we were there in February.
He has advanced stage Alzheimer's, so mentally, he is nowhere near what he was even the first time we were out there with the kids 2 years ago.
BB is taking it really hard...and the waiting will be the hardest part for him, because, it could be tomorrow, or it could be 6 months from now...
Please pray for BB, that his heart will find comfort. Pray for Grandpa, that his going Home will be peaceful. Pray for Grandma, that she'll truly be ok with it when he goes. Pray for BB's aunt and uncle and cousins...2 of his cousins were raised by these grandparents, and I cannot imagine how they must be feeling right now.
All the other family is within a few hours drive...BB wants us to load up the car and drive straight through when we get the news, so pray that we'll be able to safely get there for the services.
