My grandmother died yesterday in the hospital of renal failure. She was 99 years old and had lived a good, happy and long life. I will miss her dreadfully (I talked to her every Sunday for 2 to 3 hours and I will probably continue talking to her even though she won't be able to hear me or answer me).

I think of it as her taking care of me one last time.
Kay, I'm very sorry for your loss. I guess Christmas is going to be a tough holiday for both of us.

We sat with her for a few hours and then shortly (like an hour) after we left her room, she was gone. Same situation for both. Can people really "choose" when to die...more or less?

Thoughts?
More or less, yes, we choose.
I knew a man who was dying. He said he got to thinking about the kids how he had to finish a couple more things before he died. So, in his words, he decided to try just one more time.

He died several months later.

I never really thought about this, until now. My mother passed a few weeks ago. Me, my sister and brother were in her room ( a nursing home). She was on oxygen and knew she was most likely going to pass in a few days. We all were in her room for a half an hour, talking to her and among ourselves. Didn't know if she could hear us. We had to leave the room to go to a meeting at the facility. As we left the room we all said see you in a few minutes, have to go to a meeting. Eight minutes into the meeting the nurse came to get us. Because she had passed in that time. Still not to sure what to think. So many little things....like my brother rushed to get there, he was out of town, so he could be there before the meeting. I flew in a week before and was scheduled to fly out that next day, so i was able to be there when she passed. I guess we were all meant to be there, but not with her. She waited for us to leave the room.
