Wiped out...

The weekend was bittersweet. The funeral was lovely and we had more laughs and grins than tears.

Grandpa left us with a freshy funny. Friday, he was responding to treatment and seemed on the mend. A female nurse came in to check his depend/diaper thing, and as she pulled the waistband back, he grinned and said "IT'S A BOY!"

Yes, more happiness than sadness, though it was tremendously sad. Middle of the day here and I just got home. Time to cuddle with my pups and get some rest.

All the best to all of you, and thank you for your kindnesses.

Glad you had more laughs than tears... When you can do that, he lived a good life and will be remembered fondly!

Aww, just checked your blog and read the bad news. Sorry about your loss. Glad you made it there and back safe and sound in all this mess. Sounds like your Grandfather was a great man. Much love to you and your family.

I'm glad you're home safe and sound, Phlegmmy, and that the saddest of occasions was lightened by good memories. That helps a lot.

all I can say or do.
At least you can laugh through some of it, that'll help you out in the long term.
