Grandma isn’t doing well at all. Her health problems are not under control, and not surprisingly, she’s very unhappy without Grandpa. It is very difficult for everyone involved when she is so far away, but the logistics and financial options to move here do not appear realistic. As much as I wish I could change something for Grandma, I more wish that mom could have an easier time of this somehow. Grandma may not be cognizant of all the details, but mom certainly is and I know the distance factor is definitely amplifying all the negative aspects of the situation.
