Learning to Let Go

Yesterday afternoon (about 3) the family made the choice to remove my Grandpa from the respirator. It was a hard decision but the right one (the one Grandpa would want). They believe he suffered a stroke on Saturday and is now not able to move his right side. He’s not reacting to anyone when off sedation, is in great pain when awake, and has MRSA.  He has lived a full life of 89 years and his poor body is so tired and broken down. I love him dearly and will miss his lively stories!
