So, its been a rough week. D has had red days at school both Monday and Tuesday. Today he got yellow, which is better, but its not GREEN which we strive for. He bit both red days, and today he didn't bite but he was still pushing other children.

In sad news, my grandad is on the downhill slope of Alzheimers. He's at the point now where he can't eat much, and he's so tired all the time and doesn't get out of bed much. He keeps falling, 5 times the past 6 weeks or so. And the nurse for his hospice care said today that she thinks it won't be much longer now. So I cried most of the late afternoon today and all through church was struggling to fight it back. My grandad is dying and theres nothing I can do to stop it. I HATE IT, I HATE THAT THIS HAS TO HAPPEN. And my poor grandma is struggling to hold on. The only good news is that with him in the bed all day today, she was able to get things done around the house without him bothering her. My aunt and uncle are leaving to go on a cruise next week, which is a horrible time, and they are praying that he doesn't go before they get back. I know it would wound any one of us to not be there or not get to say goodbye first.

*sigh* So thats my updates...please keep my family in your prayers. I'm just about at the end of my rope, with my grandad, D acting a fool at school, finances are incredibly tight, and this class I am taking at church is stirring up things as well. I know, it could be worse, I know I need to trust in God, I know He's right here beside me through this. But right now, I'm just tired.
