My Nanna passed away at 2pm on Saturday. The last time I saw her she said that she wanted to go to sleep and not wake up. It took a week but she got her wish and she is at peace and with my Grandad again as I know she wanted.
So I’m back but not up to posting about sunshine and sights. There are pictures and stories to come but I need a couple of days.
For now I’m off to see a very sweet man about a hug.
I had a call from my Dad last night telling me that my Nanna is in hospital and that he had only just found out. I spent all day today trying to get more information. Finally at 5 this evening I found out that she is seriously ill and has been in hospital since last Friday. Her son is coming all the way over from Australia to be with her. This is what happened in April when my Grandfather died. All those feeling came rushing back and I totally fell apart.
The situation is difficult. She is actually my Grandad’s second wife – my Dad’s Stepmum. They were married before I was born so she has always been my Nanna. But my Dad and his sisters have never had an easy relationship with her. She just never treated them as her kids and things have never been easy between them but they always made an effort when my Grandad was alive.
This I guess is why it has taken so long for the information to get to me. I am really upset though as she is my Nanna and I have known her all my life. She is in hospital in Surrey so I can drive up there tomorrow and see her. I hope it’s not to say goodbye but my heart tells me that it is.
