bad news... :(
 
SO..... i've had some family issues come up this morning and as such i'm now unable to go to C5 fest :cry: i have a reservation at the Marriott, so if anyone needs a room msg me and i'll give you my confirmation number and you can have my reservation. i'm so totally bummed, but i know if i leave and my grandfather passes away im going to live with that guilt and i can't bear that. anyway... lemme know if anyone needs the room and have a great time for me!

I'm not trying to sound cynical or anything but will not going save him? You could go and if, God forbid, he passes... Leave immediately and go home. Second, if you don't go and (as we all hope) he doesn't die, it was a waste not to go.

I live 5 hours from my hometown. I got "the call" that he was doing bad at 7:00 am. I called off and before I could even get on the highway, I got the second call... "don't rush" :(

I know it's a tough decision but what would HE (grandpa) want you to do?

Good luck in your decision and I'm sorry for your situation. I was VERY close with my grandfather and miss him dearly!

i've actually thought about it, i know where you're coming from. being here with him won't make him better but I wouldn't have a good time knowing whats going on at home. I just feel like the right place for me is here with my family and being there for my mom.

Your making the right choice! As soon as I found out my grandfather was in the Hospital for a bypass, I packed up in 5 minutes and left the house for the drive to Montreal

don't i know it. i missed my grandmothers funeral in another state a couple years ago because work was more important and i'm still regreting not being there to say goodbye. I guess thats part of my needing to be here with him and my family.

although i cant make the decision for you i recieved news that my grandfather had taken a turn for the worse and only had 6 months to live, i took leave to go see him cause i had this feeling that this was the last time i was going to see him. he died on christmas and im glad that i made the decision to go and see him for the last time....

Scott@Bjorn3D 04-12-2011 12:00 PM

My prayers are with you and your family that all works out.

Lazerbrainz2k3 04-12-2011 12:01 PM

Compared to family, it really is just a car - just an attractive hunk of metal, really. Having lost the last of my grandparents just two years ago next week (we were very close - I can't imagine not having been there), it sounds to me like you're doing the right thing, but it's what you think is best that means the most. I'm sure there will be a C5F III.

All the best to you and your family.

LolatheSlush 04-12-2011 12:21 PM

i know i keep saying this, but thank you so much for the encouragement and kind words and prayers. it really means a lot to me and just proves how much of a family all of the C5-ers are :) you all are a great bunch of people
