I'm Afraid...

Grandma Is Fading Fast, originally uploaded by macfixer.

I'm actually afraid to visit my parents' house this weekend.

For Memorial Day, my sister is having everyone over for a cookout, and my grandmother will be there. She's been living in a nursing home now for a few years, and she's become less like the 'Grandma' I remember as a kid, and more like this... this... this different person -- one who speaks a different language, who doesn't have any recollection of the family, and is just slipping away slowly from this world.

I know she's aged dramatically since she's moved out of her house, but my Dad warned Sonia to expect a 'very, very different' Grandma come this weekend.

I'm afraid.
