I'm flying to Detroit tomorrow, and just received this message from my dad regarding my grandma. It's like she waited for me.
We just got home, 12:30p on thursday. Had to cut the vacation a day shorter because of issues with my mom. I got a call from Village of Redford while we were in the middle of the Bay. She is back in the hospital again for dehydration and not eating. She will be going back to the nursing home tomorrow, but she will be visited by "Comfort Care", i.e. hospice. Her body seems to be shutting down. I will be going to Detroit Friday and spend the day there trying to feed her lunch and dinner, and then spending the night somewhere. I will be going there again Sat morning sometime, but will certainly like to go to the game with you for a break.
It would be nice to know where to get you on Saturday before I leave tomorrow morning, or give me a call when you can. If you want to go Sat morning with me to see grandma, let me know and we would just leave from there. I not, I can get you later in the morning and go to the game. I will be returning to SH after the game since I probably will be too burned out and gotta rest before next week. I havn't worked much in the past 2 1/2 weeks and need to get some hours in. Also, I dont know when I might have to return to Detroit that week.
Looking forward to seeing you and spending some time with you..... Dad.
Grandma has suffered from Alzheimers for the last five years and no long can talk, let alone recognize anyone. She broke her hip a couple of months ago. It looks like the end is near.
Dad and I are planning on going to the Tigers game together on Saturday, then he's heading back to South Haven and I'm staying one more night in Detroit and one more ballgame in Detroit, this time with some friends from college. Hearing my grandmother just entered hospice is putting a cloud over the proceedings, but hopefully I get to see her again on Saturday morning.
