and everythings on plan eating/weighloss wise. No worries.

I've spent the last three days by my grandmothers side and she finally died last night at 11:56 in my arms, with my head and her head touching and me stroking her hair. It's been the HARDEST thing I've ever had to do but I am so glad I was there with her.

So I'm sorry I have not been around for the last little bit. That will change. So don't worry about me (as I know some have been) I'm okay and back.

love you friends

Tammy, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know you've been expecting this for some time, but you're never quite ready to let them go, are you?

My thoughts are with you, sweetie. :hug:

I feel very relieved for her :( She was in so much pain this past week that it's a relief for her not to be feeling that any more.

The nursing home took good care of us. My husband brought in my snacks for me but I ate their breakfast/lunch and dinner. All low sodium/low fat stuff but still okay. I didn't go over my calorie count although I don't think I've actually eaten that many sandwiches in a long time. Lots of water etc.

The service will be either thursday or friday. She's being cremated and we're having a tea afterwards.

I'm freaking exhausted guys. I was up from 6 am friday morning to 2 am sunday morning with 1.5 hours of sleep in the middle of friday night. I got sleep last night but it's going to take a while to catch up.

Thanks for the support everyone. I love being friends with you all.

How beautiful that you were able to be with her as she transistioned to a new life! You seem very at peace about it. And I am so proud of you that you did not use this as an excuse to go off plan. Well done!
