The last week has been relentless. My grandad has been back in hospital with yet another lung/chest infection. This time they said his kidneys were failing. In the state he appeared to be in we were all preparing for the worst. He had some scans and it turned out his kidneys were just dry because he isn't eating or drinking and the doctor read us the wrong notes.

He's still not great but should be fine at least for a little longer. He's still hospital but he's on a ward and is just there for obs at this point.

Then I got a letter from hmrc saying they overpayed us tax credits by over 1100 so we have to pay that back, which we absolutely can nowhere near afford.

Then I just got a call from my mum saying she has a lump on her breast and has to have all the tests done at some point. I can't even remember the conversation now.

It would be nice to have a good day sometimes.

Life is a roller coaster. Ups and downs. I hate the downs too.

To make things worse I just had lasagna. The beef ragu tasted like mashed up dog food.

Don't feel like making a new journal so I'll just update this one.

My grandad passed away this morning.

I'm probably gonna be away for a short while, while I process everything. It's been rough couple of weeks.

Thanks guys. It's all still very surreal atm.

I'm more pissed off than anything right now at the he's been treated. He's been waiting over a week for a scan so he can go home and the scan was never arranged.

When he died they took his pillow away so he was just laid with his head tilted back, mouth wide open. His hands were awkwardly half clenched. He just looked really uncomfortable.

He was just left on the ward. He didn't even get a room or anything.

It all just seemed really undignified and it's infuriating knowing he died just waiting for a scan so he can go home to his wife and sit in his chair.

I'm trying to focus on the positives.

He died in his sleep.

Whilst the Alzheimer's has been progress pretty quickly lately, he still knew who his family were etc. So we're 'happy' we didn't get to see the worst of it.

Everything is still very surreal. This week has just been a blur.

I went see my mum and nan yesterday. They both seem to be doing ok but my nan for sure is putting it on. She's been running around for grandad for years. She's going to be so bored and lonely. I'm not sure how she is going to cope.

I've been asked to be a pallbearer which of course I accepted but now I'm really anxious. I don't have any upper body strength. Also, we all vary greatly in height. I think it's just going to be really awkward.
