the day after my son and I went to visit my parents, my Dad passed away.
My son is his only grandchild and had not seen him for quite sometime. I had decide to take my son with me since this was only going to be a short and wanted him to see my parents. They had both been battling cancer for about a year and my trips were usually 2-3 weeks long and he couldn't miss that much school. Anyway, Dad had beat the cancer and was feeling great.
The day after we got there, Daddy complained of chest pain and passed within seconds. My son, who is 18, started cpr while I was on phone with 911. Even the perimedics couldn't bring him back. My son will not talk about losing his grandfather and it's tearing him apart...affecting his school work as well as his social life.....he won't even talk to me. I contacted his counselors at school for help, but this just made him mad and he still won't talk about it.....I mentioned professional help to him and he said even if I made him go, he wouldn't talk....I myself am trying to hold it together and be strong for his sake...even though I still hurt deeply and cry alot. It has only been 1 month since this happened. Does anyone have any suggestions ????
