Yes, my dear Opera friends, I am back. Returned to my home town about a couple of hours ago.
Unfortunately, bad news waited for me. Some of you know that I live with my grandparents and some of you know that my grandma was ill. My mother and aunt called me two days ago to tell me that she is not doing well. She is very weak now and I am afraid these are her last days.
So, this is what I have to deal with in a days to come. If you see that I disappear again, you will know the reason.
Take care.

    Tough times ahead…your comment above is very moving, take care.

  16. L2D2 says:

    Thank goodness she recognized you Dare. That will mean a lot in the future.

  17. Suntana says:

    Welcome back, Darko.Certainly not the type of News one wants to come home to after a vacation. I'm trying to think back and remember whether I've seen any mention of whether you celebrate Christmas or any of the other holidays around this time. Not that there's ever any good time for someone to come to the end of their life's journey, but I'm sure it hits extra hard around a time like this for family and friends of someone who does.

  18. ellinidata says:

    Please give her many hugs Darko, she might not remember at this point, but she can feel the love! stay close to your grandfather, he is the one that will need lots of help! I hope she comes out of it and that,God gives her strength to continue making people happy with her presence for many years to come ! :heart:

  19. gdare says:

    Louis, thank you.Linda, she was so happy to see me. My aunt told me she was asking about me last few days.Carlos, my family always celebrated both Orthodox and Catholic celebrations. But, you are right, it will not be a lot of reasons for celebration this year.Angeliki, thank you very much.

  20. Dacotah says:

    Darko, my friend. God Bless you and your family. Find peace in the knowledge that you are a close family. Talk to her, tell her all you want her to know and ask her if she'd have anything she'd like to say. Sing favorite songs, read favorite books. Take care. God Bless. :heart: BIG HUGS

  21. L2D2 says:

    Carols advice sounds excellent, Dare. A good plan.

  22. Diabolical says:


  23. Aqualion says:

  24. gdare says:

    Carol, I don't think she would understand anything that I would read or said to her now. But thanks anyway :worried: Thank you, all. You are real friends.

    It isn't so much the meaning of what you read, Dare, it's the sound of your voice that would make a connection for her.

  28. gdare says:

    Mit and Kim, thanks.

  36. fammcdon says:

    Hate to hear that. 😦 Got an update?

  37. gdare says:

    She is stabilized now, for a week or so, pneumonia seemed to be cured but cancer is still there, growing a bit and causing a mild fever. But she is not in pain so this is a little mercy. And she is not aware what is going on around…

  38. fammcdon says:

    Good and bad news then. With bad winning. :down: Hang tough and take care. Things like this will wear you down.

  39. fammcdon says:
