A Terrible Situation
My grandmother's situation is terrible. Her cancer-covered bones create a tremendous amount of pain. Everyone connected to the situation is in some kind of pain (emotionally and/or physically). And the only way this terrible situation- dying of painful cancer- will conclude is when my grandmother dies, which leads to another terrible situation- the death of a wife, mother, grandmother, friend.
It saddens me to know that my grandmother's wonderful life is ending with her in an infant-like state; she's in pain and she's not self sufficient. She relies on my grandfather, my aunt, my mother, my uncle, and nurses to take care of her every need. At least her cancer has given us all a chance to remind her that she is loved, appreciated, and valued.
