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.

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.
