We had a relatively busy day doing various things around the house. With Jillian feeling better, we had to catch up on chores, like laundry, that had to be ignored almost the entire week.
However, we did receive some sad news today. Phil's grandpa, the one that had the risky surgery I spoke about here, had a heart attack in his sleep, and died this morning. He was lucky enough to be home instead of still in the hospital, and we are glad he is no longer in pain. It is still a blow to the family, and we are deeply saddened. The service should be sometime next week in Tulsa.
This is my first loss to go through with Phil on his side of the family. I knew this day would come, but it is still not very easy. I'm doing my best to be there for him how he and his family need me. It is a different dynamic than my family, but I am willing to learn. Thoughts and prayers are always felt and appreciated.
