I am for the first time in my life going to buy my own lottery ticket tonight. I know there is a 1 in 175 million chance of winning but if you don't try you will never have a chance at all.
Gpa has taken a turn for the worse and has now stopped eating and the doctors have given him only a few more days to live without food. I think he has given up the fight but he has lived a great long life and I think he now just wants to go out on his own terms. It is sad for Philip since this is his last grandparent alive but he has had time to come to terms even though it will still be hard to lose him.
