So my Nan died yesterday, which I have mentioned in the post before. She was my Dad’s mum and he grew up without a father in his life. About a year or more ago he applied to the Show ‘Long Lost Family’ to track down his father. He was contacted today by the show to tell him that they have found his Dad.. But he basically doesn’t want to know, although he admits he is aware of my dad’s existence. I am so angry at how he could walk away with his own child and when he gets tracked down just run. My dad has lost two parents this week!
So in a previous post I spoke about how my Nan is in hospital and every time we think we are going to lose her, she all of a sudden improves. My dad was called to the hospital yesterday to say goodbye for the third time this week and sat with her for hours on end. She had definitely worsened, ie she looked asleep but her eyes were open and couldn’t even register when someone was talking to her anymore. He decided to stay with her overnight and they gave him a blanket and a pillow, whilst he sat on the chair next to her bed. She lost her battle at 4:20am.
My nan has now been in hospital for 2/3 weeks after having what we believed to be a stroke, but turned out to be a fit. After running tests on her, they showed my dad a scan of her brain, which half of is shadowed by some sort of lump. They can’t run tests to see if it’s cancer or not as it’s too deep and they don’t want to put her to sleep for fear of her not waking back up. On Saturday I received a call off my dad asking if I wanted to go with him to the hospital as the doctors called him in urgently. They needed to drain her lungs and the next twelve hours were crucial. I decided not to go, so Dad went alone. She survived and outlived the 12 hours, despite no one believing she would. Today I received the urgent phone call again from Dad telling me I needed to get to the hospital to say goodbye. I got there and she couldn’t see anything, her left side seems to be paralysed, can’t talk and trouble breathing. The family crowded round to say goodbye and were there hours but nothing happened. Doctors decided to do some tests on her and turned out that her breathing etc had improved once again! She even managed to say hello to my mum when she walked into the ward. She doesn’t have long left, lumps are coming up daily and the lump in her brain is really affecting her but so far she’s proved to be a fighter and although she likely doesn’t have more than a few days left, we know that she held on as long as she could.
As I live in the UK, we are a bit behind when it comes to American programmes and one of the many ones that I watch is The Vampire Diaries. My cousin, however, watches it online and therefore is ahead of me. She called me up one day saying how I must watch The Vampire Diaries immediately, as there is a shocking death of one of the main characters and she’s been crying her eyes out. I asked her what episode she was on and she said 21 and as I was on 19 I decided I might as well watch the next two online to find out what the big commotion was all about.
Straight away I ruled out Damon Salvatore, Stefan Salvatore and Elena Gilbert, as they are the three main characters and main characters never die, as they somehow all seem to be invincible!
So then I thought to myself, well who could it be then? And I narrowed it down to two other characters, who were also main, but not main main if you know what I mean by that!
The first was Bonnie. She is ‘The Anchor’ to ‘The Other Side’ which means that all dead supernatural beings must go through her to get there. The Other Side is falling apart, due to an escapee and if The Other Side disappears then Bonnie disappears along with it.
The second possibility is Tyler; in the past two series or so, he had not been on it as often so I figured maybe they were trying to slowly write him out of the script, or maybe he was even going to star in The Originals instead.
I watched episode 20 and then began to watch episode 21, trying to work out who was going to die and when. At some point I believed Damon was going to die and I was soo pleased when he didn’t! Finally it came to the death scene and I must admit… I was shocked. R.I.P Stefan Salvatore. Although I’m hoping that somehow they will find a way to bring him back from the dead like they’ve done to other characters on this show many times before!
