Unhappy My nanna died

My nanna died this morning. Ugh. I feels weird even looking at that sentence. She'd been sick most of my life... she got cancer when I was 7 and the chemo messed up her muscles in her legs so she couldn't walk without a stick and it weakened her heart... cancer treatments weren't quite as advanced as they are now and sometimes that's what happened... at least that's the line my nanna's GP always gave us when she got sick.

She died in the hospital in her sleep in the early hours of this morning (UK time). My mum rang me exactly an hour ago... I'm thousands of miles away from them (I'm in Florida... I've been here since June 30th) but it seems like she told me hours and hours ago. I always dreaded nanna dying cos she was always there for me or my mum if we needed anything... we kind of depended on her. So she was in the hospital since July 18th... I remember cos I sent her flowers on the 17th cos it was her birthday a few days before and she never got to enjoy seeing the flowers cos she was in there.

I loved my nanna so much. I'd fight with her every day though. She was the world's worse nag. She'd nag at everyone about stupid things... part of it was cos she was always in so much pain... anyone in as much pain as she was would be short with people from time to time.

I'm not going home though. My auntie (my nan's sister) said that my nanna wouldn't want me to come home and that my nanna made them promise that they wouldn't let me know how sick she was the past few weeks cos she wanted me not to worry about her. But I knew... they don't keep you in hospital for nearly 6 weeks if you're doing okay.

I'm gonna miss her so much. She'd do anything for anyone... She'd give you her last penny if she thought it would help you out. And I hope she knew how much she meant to everyone in our family and all her friends. I just can't believe I'm going to live out the rest of my life without seeing or speaking to her again.

I've never lost anyone before (well as an adult where I understand what death means). And I dunno what I'm supposed to be doing or feeling or if it's sunk in yet or if I'm just not really believing it. Like... I'm going to a waterpark today... And that's weird, right? Should I be in the house crying and feeling sorry for myself? I just think I need to be distracted. Whenever my nanna was really sad or if she lost somebody she'd go out and play bingo to take her mind off it So... I think she'd understand...

I just wish I'd have been home and I could have visited her in the hospital every day... The hospital is a horrible place to spend your last 6 weeks alive and she always dreaded dying in that place

I'm terribly sorry for you, hon. I don't know what to say. My nanna died after 5 years in a nursing home out of her mind. We have no control over how someone goes.

Go to the waterpark, sweetie. The best thing you can do is stay busy for the time being. Every day it will get just a little easier.

I'm sorry to hear this news but I think that she was sure that her disease is uncurable and she got used to death. I know how it is to lost a person who loved you and you loved her, because I lost my two grandfathers in about 3 weeks time. But remember: I'm sure she wouldn't want you to be sad at all. So don't be sad- I hope she feels much better wherever she is now.

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige r廧andre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brl jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.

(July 4th, 1994 - August 5th, 2009) I love you so much... I miss you so...
