Random Rambling
My mother told me today that I should go see my grandmother. Soon. She's been sick for a long time. Like 10 years. But now she's actually dying. She's in the final stages of COPD and my mother expects that sometime in the next few months we'll get a call that she didn't wake up.

So I'm looking at flights out there on no notice. Le Sigh.

Current Mood: sad sad

Thanks. It's been a long time coming, I just think we're getting to the home-stretch.

just a practical tip- most airlines have a family emergency/bereavement discount. its not available online but if you call they'll take it off the ticket price.
hugs and tefilot...

Yes, but flying out there on Southwest's Internet rate is still a lot cheaper than flying on anyone else's bereavement rate. Plus, this isn't exactly family emergency status. Yet. I just want a chance to see her again before it IS family emergency status.

But thanks for the heads up.

Oh no :-( *hugs*
(I'm really close to my grandma, I can't imagine how I'd feel if my mum rung me up with news like this :/ )

May the visit fill your heart for a long time, and may you always carry some aspect of your grandmother within.

Have a safe and fulfilling trip.
