The Tenth Day...

...a day you'd rather forget

That's easy...March 2nd, 2010.

My grandmother passed away...

She'd had two back to back heart attacks one early Saturday morning...and never recovered. She was 81. I was heart broken.

I woke up that Tuesday morning...and instead of readying for work, a sense of doom fell over me and I sat on the side of my bed in a trance. My heart knew what my mind didn't want to wasn't going to be a good day for her.

My sister called me and said that my father had summoned us to the hospital...that it didn't look good. I already knew that. I got dressed and we went to Mt. Vernon Hospital.

She'd died just moments before we got there.

I went to her bedside and hugged her and cried the hardest wail I've ever cried. Her body was there. The machines were moving her chest as if she were breathing. Such cruel necessity.

I was never the same.

Our family was never the same.

I still think my father has lost what small piece of mind that the drugs and alcohol didn't claim before his sobriety.

We're a lost clan least on the paternal side.

Yea...that's all for now.
