So a lot of have you have been requesting an update on how my grandparents are..
Firstly you guys are unbelievably sweet and caring and it just melts my heart that you care, so thank you for asking!
Grandad is doing okay, he’s a fighter that’s for sure! His health is a massive worry, he’s deteriorated rapidly and then sort of just stopped like he’s teetering on the brink of.. well let’s just say he’s teetering but he’s still holding on!
He’s been very aggressive lately (for those that don’t know aggression can be a side effect of Alzheimer’s). I find the aggressive part of Alzheimer’s quite fascinating in a strange way because my grandad is such a frail old man now but when he gets angry he suddenly becomes really strong and rather terrifying but then a few minutes later he’s a sweet frail old man again. It’s funny how that works isn’t it?
My grandmother is okay too, shes becoming an increasingly big worry for me but we’re managing. I feel a little uncomfortable discussing her too much on my blog as shes still somewhat compos mentis. But she’s okay.
I don’t really feel like I’ve updated you all that much but for some reason writing a post specifically about them and how they’re doing feels strange to me. I mention them in posts constantly and it’s thanks to Grandad I’ve done all my Alzheimer’s posts etc but actually writing this in depth about them feels too personal, like I’m invading their privacy.
They’re okay though.
Are you okay? Comment down below or tweet me @MissCharlotteEm and let me know how YOU are! xo
