Hi everyone. I have a rather large problem I do not know what to do with. My grandfather, my kids great grandfather, has found out that he has terminal cancer and has a little less than a year to live. My oldest daughter is about 2 and he is her best friend. My youngest is 4 months and loves to take her afternoon naps with him, when he is having a good day. My problem is, my grandfather is getting worse daily, he is almost completely bed ridden. How can I help my kids cope with his lose. Their doctor said to let them spend time with him on his good days, but he is having fewer and fewer of those now. They have called in hospice, to assist in his affairs. I am afraid that I will be unable to help them when he does pass, due to my own greive. What should I do?
