“It Doesn’t Look Good”

My last post on my grandpa was just a few days ago, but things haven't gotten any better. This email is from my father.

I don't know if you know mom, Karlye, Brad, and I visited my father last Sunday as he had been transferred from the hospital to a care facility with pneumonia. At that time he was extremely weak and could only speak with great effort. I just got a call from my brother Ed and dad has taken a turn for the worse and things are looking rather dire at this point. So be advised that you might be getting a call in the near future.

I'm not exactly struggling with the whole mortality thing - it happens, and one day I won't be around either. But it is unsettling. Combined with the apathy I tend to feel towards the end of the week, it's a pretty lousy day to get any work done.
