Grandmother passed away today 1-08-09

Well this year has already been sucky! Sorry! I just can't believe my Grandmother passed away! It started this morning at 4am. I got a call from my niece saying that grandma had died. I was so disoriented I couldn't even think straight. Then sat up in bed and realized what was going on. My grandmother had took care of her mom for 15 years as she had alzheimers...Because of the stress and overload, she developed Sarcoidosis. It caused her body to attack itself...There is no cure for it but it is treatable....It attacks the lymph nodes...It has attacked her lungs...she was on oxygen 24/7 and taking steroids. They think she had a heart attack. She was my step grandmother, but the only one I had known as my real grandmother passed away before I was born. She was 20yrs younger than my grandfather, who has been battling cancer for the past couple of years. So it was a shock to find out she passed before him. She was more like a 2nd mom to me than a grandmother. I am still in shock. Just yesterday, I was talking to a co-worker about all the junk going on with me this month and asked her "how much more could I take?" Then this happens. I don't think I will ask again. I have my court case Monday with my ex and then the 15 I have my cancer restaging. This will be my 2nd 3 month check up.
I don't know how much more bad news I can take this year.
Thanks for reading. (((HUGZ)))
