Not good news I'm afraid ....
Sadly my gran passed away today. It was very quick at the end and sadly no-one was able to be with her at the time. I've been to say goodbye and have spent most of today like this
Feeling very sad and drained right now. Just thought I'd update all the well wishers. Please use those wishes and prayers for my family now. This is going to be a long haul as the death cannot even be registered until Tuesday.
We are going to go away and try to seek some pleasure out of a few family days away as nothing will be able to happen until after we get back anyway.
My thoughts are with you too F#m.
So sorry to hear this, Dawn.
It's sad to have to say goodbye, but at least your Grandma didn't suffer the frustrations of inability to communicate which often follow a major stroke. Hope your days away help to cheer you all up a bit.

My aargh, for today is so minor compared to other peoples... just boyfriend-being-an-idiot-issues. Honestly, the last day we're going to be living together for the next 3 years, I'm off home for several weeks now, not going to be seeing him etcetc, first chance we've had in ages to spend some decent time together... and he goes to a band practise.
Perhaps other forumites can understand music >> girlfriend, but I'm not one of them.
It's tough having to be apart for three years.
Perhaps doing something like band practice is what helps your boyfriend to come to terms with it? Everyone reacts differently when faced by a major change in their life, and some prefer to carry on as if it isn't happening.
Hope you're able to relax for a while now after all the exertions of the PhD.
