not how i'd planned on spending my weekend

So, my grandmother is dying.

This isn't a surprise. She's a 90+ Holocaust survivor and has some flavor of COPD (likely from what she experienced at Bergen-Belsen, since she's never smoked a cigarette in her life). She's been unwell for a long time, and recently it's been more of a when than if. Mom had actually just been in the process of arranging hospice care for her.

But my mother woke me up this morning to tell me that my grandmother had been vomiting black (sign of gastric bleeding), and now that when is looking to be soon. So we threw some stuff into a suitcase and she flew down to West Palm where my grandparents are.

Leaving me to coordinate phone calls between here, West Palm, Chicago (where Dad is, at a conference), and Mom en route, and I haven't accomplished much since this morning beyond that and reading a lot of mind-numbing fanfic.

And I have finals next week and colleges to be contacting and the Geekling needs to be picked up from Frostbite Falls in a week and I don't think I'm mentally equipped to handle all this right now.

Dear world, fuck off and die, mkay?
