Last evening, hubby and myself went to visit his ailing grandma.

My mom inlaw and sis inlaw (with family) came along too.

Grandma, better known as Patti, is being taken care by hubby's aunt.
When we arrived at the aunt's place, we went straight to the room , where Patti was.

She was lying on the bed, unable to move...so much so as already bed-ridden.
Her frail boney body just lied there, unable to respond when we called her..thou she tied very hard to open her eyes.
Her cheeks were deep sunken,her few strands of white hair was tied up, she breathed like she's gasping for air..her lungs are filled with phelgm.

I felt sad for her...but at the same time, thankful ,for at least she has someone of her own flesh and blood to care for her ,with the help of a maid.

Patti is a strong woman (despite her other characters)..she was in coma for more than a week ,two years back. Almost everyone was "prepared" for her death..even my hubby cancelled his business trip. Lo and behold, with her strong willed power to live, she "woke up".

Last nite, what i saw, was different fm the previous. The chance to
live longer looks pretty slim...( i dunno).

How long can a person live in this world?
Our clock is ticking every,seconds and minutes till the hour comes.
Death sometimes come with no indication.
I attended two funerals recently, and the whole situation give me a perfect reminder.

Well, our journey in life will come to an end..we all shall taste death.
Have we prepared ?
