Rest in Peace Grandmother
dwencl dwencl is offline 04-06-2012, 10:46 PM

My grandmother, Clarice Miller, died this morning. She was 80 years old. She was a great woman. Her husband was an alcoholic who committed suicide and she raised her two children independently. She was the first of three women to be telephone operators in a male-dominated workplace. She led a great life, lived long enough to see her two great-grandchildren grow up (ages 8 and 5).

She was diagnosed with liver cancer on the 15th of March. After running tests they also found cancer in her stomach. She was admitted into the hospital 5 days later due to dehydration and they did a liver biopsy. Four days later they found out that it was not the primary source of cancer.

On tuesday she was readmitted into the hospital due to uncontrollable vomiting. It was then that she was told that she had an aggressive, untreatable cancer in her gastric-intestinal area. It was also the day my father called me and told me he had plane tickets for me to be on a plane wednesday evening. I spent all day yesterday in her hospital room and watched the grossly inadequate treatment the hospital was providing.

At one point the doctor ordered the nurse to turn off the pain pump. 1/2 hour later my grandmother opened her eyes and began moaning in agony. I called her name and she saw me, which was what I was afraid she wasnt going to do. She couldnt talk, couldnt close her mouth, and soon went back to sleep. My uncle and mom immediately called the hospice to move her from the hospital to her room there. They came and took over, my grandmother was transferred to her hospice bed, and she opened her eyes briefly, but there was nothing in them. Vacant.

This morning my dad told me that she had died. The hospice nurse had stayed all night and washed my grandmother's hair and changed her into her own nightgown. I stood there and held her hand.

I feel so guilty because I havent seen her in nearly six years. I only have a few pictures of her, but none that are here in Oregon with me. This is what is imprinted in my mind and the last picture I have of her still alive in the hospital:

It is of my mom, my uncle, and my cousin praying for her suffering to end.

sorry to read of your loss. looks like she had a good life and was surrounded by love ones

rip

Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.

For awhile after my younger brother died, I paid his cell bill so I could call and hear his voice ...

Sorry for your losee dwencl.

RIP Ms. Miller
80 years is a good run I think. I only have one grandmother alive left after my Dad's mom died when I was a teen. My grammy is 67. I hope and pray she lives to be 80 or more. I love her so dearly, it's going to hurt me a lot when I lose her so I am sympathetic to your situation. Best wishes, Vlad.
