So today has been an all around terrible day.

My grandpa had a small heart attack. He's alive and relatively stable right now. But he's asked not to be resuscitated if it happens again, and the chances are good that it will happen again. His heart is weak. And he's an old man. And he's really very ill. So it doesn't look good.

I'm not terribly close to him, but my mom's freaking out. To me, grandpa will always be the really scary old hillbilly whose wrath my mother always promised if I did anything bad while visiting my grandparents. And he loved to intimidate all of us kids. But he's my grandfather, so I'm miserable that he's suffering.

It's been an obnoxious day.
