Tomorrow my mom is flying to Tennessee to finally visit my grandmother.
A week or so ago they moved my grandmother from the hospital back to her house, under hospice care.
Her kidneys, lungs and other organs are all failing.
Instead of subjecting her to dialysis, my family decided that it was better for her to pass on in peace at her own home.

She has been crying out for a while now about wanting to die. She's been asking different family members to "open the door".
She thinks heaven is behind the door, and she wants to go through it.
My mom will be gone from Wednesday until next Thursday.

In any other situation I wouldn't be advertising someone going away, but my dad will be here with me instead of my mom.
So no, the house will never be empty.

I figure I'll just throw this in here since I haven't said anything in almost a week:
For Christmas I got a sewing machine, new camera, and a few other knick-knacks.
It was a quiet Christmas, more stressed than anything because of the situation with my grandmother.

Hopefully once my mom sees my grandma, she'll be able to go in peace. (She's been crying out my mom's name the past few days.)

So that's how things are.

Oh, I re-dyed my hair.
Before:After:I missed my dark, dark red. Put me in a better mood to finally get rid of my nasty roots.

Also, final grades for the semester were posted.

It's such a hard time. You want them to not be in pain anymore, but you don't want to let them go.

Like the new hair!
