My poor grandma

My grandmother is dying. I just called her at the hospital and she was so out of it that she couldn’t even finish her sentences. I tried to engage her in conversation a few times, but she was drifting. I finally asked her if mom and dad had been to see her today and she just kept repeating in a barely audible whisper “your mother went…she went…she went to…she went…” I asked early in the conversation if I woke her up, and she claimed that she hadn’t been sleeping, but she must have.

So I offered to call her later and told her to hang up the phone, so I told her that I loved her, to which she told me that she loved me too. Then I told her to hang up the phone and get some rest. She told me again that she loved me and drifted off. She didn’t hang up the phone, but just drifted off, sort of mumbling. I didn’t hang up for a long time. It both comforted me and broke my heart to listen to her somewhat pained and labored breathing, but I listened until tears got the best of me, then I hung up. I didn’t want to wake her.

I don’t have a good feeling about this.
