This lesson is from Wednesday March 10th.
My Grandpa was in the hospital for a few days now. Unfortunately on the Tuesday, his team of doctors and nurses came to the conclusion that the medication wasn’t helping him get better. So unfortunately they had to take him off his medications. My Grandpa became an end of life patient.
Because of the Covid protocols, the hospitals didn’t allow his grandchildren to visit him. But thankfully with the help of technology, I was able to call my uncle, who was allowed to see him. My uncle put his phone on speaker, and I was able to say my goodbye to my Grandpa. The last time I had saw him it was over a year, since his retirement denied visitors to come through. It was a difficult year not being able to see him. I would always visit him.
I am able to relive one of the last memories we had on the phone.
Today, I learn that saying goodbye to someone, especially someone as dear as my Grandpa, it was incredibly hard. I will embrace every time that I see someone, and appreciate our time with them, because we never when the last time may be.
