My Grandad is the most amazing man, I'm overwhelmed and amazed at his strength and courage. Last Thursday we all thought he was going to pass and I went up to say goodbye. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. I am not a religious or praying man but I prayed for him, he has said repeatedly that he's not ready to go.
Here we are 5 days later and he fights on. Not only fighting but succeeding. He is out of bed and waiting to go home (although I suspect they will be monitoring him for some time yet). When he does go home it's my Nan who will need the support, not only from family (and I have always tried to do my bit) but from other agencies too.
Get well soon Grandad. Keep fighting you old bugger. x
