I'm in Winnipeg because my grandmother died over the weekend. I'm not particularly upset; we were never close and she was two months shy of 100 and had severe Alzheimer's for the past five years. However my dad and aunt are quite upset so we got to sit around her nursing home room for all of Saturday waiting for her to stop breathing, which was highly awkward and mildly horrifying. (I believe in euthanasia; I wouldn't do that to my cat, why would I do that to my baba?)

And then, half an hour ago, I got a call from my dad telling me to call my mom at work because one of her oldest friends died in a car accident last night.

♥ I'm sorry for your losses. The point about the cat is a good one, I agree.

Point also agreed about the cat. So they'll allow an animal to stop suffering by peacefully putting them to sleep, but they let a human being lay in bed and suffer until their heart just stops - just doesn't seem right to me.
I'm sorry for both your loses - my Grandfather had Alzheimers, he and I were VERY close but he was only in the mild stage - he still knew who we all were but would sometimes say the names wrong.

I'm sorry. It must be terrible to be surrounded by so much suffering. I send you hugs. Want me to bring you a cheer up thingy from Seattle/FOB? (It's no trouble, unless you want me to bring a certain drummer.)
