Just when you think you can't take anymore...

God gives you another load to carry, another road to hoe, another obstacle to over come, and you think to yourself...why...seriously why...

The past year has been tough for us, and the past couple of months have been really tough for Mr. Jetplane, even though he'd never let you know it. In the past year I loss my step grandmother and Mr. Jetplane has lost both of his maternal grandparents. And now we find out his only living grandmother on may only have a couple of months to live.

His grandmother is a wonderful woman, if we have a daughter she will be named after her (she & my great grandmother share the same name). It was always my dream to have a child (hopefully a daughter) while she was still alive. But that doesn't appear to be in the cards for us.

She will be moved from the hospital back to her house and have hospice come in regularly. Luckily she lives with Mr. Jetplane's cousin, who's wife is a nurse.

Please pray for her, we hope she makes it to her 80th bday in June so we can visit her.

I will keep you all in my prayers. I am so sorry.

Hospice care is wonderful though. We used them back in November when my step father passed away - but it was just at the very end - so I'm glad that she will be able to get more care from them.

But I am so sorry. :(

Go now, if there is anyway possible go now. Or at least send Mr. Jetplane. No regrets!
