Terrible birthdays ~The Lunar Flower~ Due January 13; 1 child; Alabama 6738 posts

Today is my grandmothers 60th birthday. Last year her mother died around her birthday & early this morning(2-3am)her 10 year old weenie dog that she had owned since he was 2 months old passed away. He was like her 2nd child. She's on oxygen & had a terrible breakdown. She also hasn't been asleep since then. She's been sitting in a rocking chair staring into space. So much death has happened around her. In 2011 her husband died, then his daughter died 3 weeks later. Her friend died in 2012, then her mother. This year her younger sister died from cancer & now her only companion :( I know it's part of life. It just isn't one I think she'll make it through much longer.

60 is still on the young side of elderly, she could still live for a long while still. Hopefully she grieves and gets a new dog soon. I'll be praying for her. <3

60 isn't very old but she has COPD, she's diabetic, on oxygen, has to take way too much medicine & still smokes. Her Dr told her 3 years ago that if she didn't stop she wouldn't last 7 years :/ she comes very close to death anytime she gets even a cold & is hospitalized for at least 2 weeks each time. Only she can change that though.
