Since my Grandad was admitted to emergency respite on Xmas eve my 2 children who are 5 and 9 haven't seen their Great Grandad. I did originally plan to take them to visit but Grandad was very tearful and unwell when he was 1st admitted and I didn't want to upset the girls. Now I am wondering whether I have done the right thing. Grandad was in hospital with a broken hip many weeks ago and now he is gravely ill with a chest infection and on morphine. This may well be his final days. Have I done the right thing by keeping them away? They don't seem to have been affected at all and hardly have mentioned him which I find a bit sad. I had to make a quick dash up to see Nan today as the home called with the news about his chest infection and my youngest just said "he's not been at home for a long time has he?" and " I wouldn't want to be a nurse, all that blood - yuck! My eldest said nothing and didn't seem bothered. I'm getting myself worked up wondering If i've dealt with this all wrong.
