My grandparents recently have been having lots of health issues too. My grandmother from my father's side had a few strokes about a month ago, and is now in a nursing home. She went from being a reasonably healthy person who hadn't been sick in about half a century, to not being able to walk. Her husband died long before I was born from a heart attack. About 8 years ago my mother's father, died from lung cancer due to smoking. His second wife died 4 years ago on my birthday. My mother's mother and her current husband have been in the hospital this past week, she from surgery, and he from having a fall this past weekend.
I have been very close to all of my grandparents, with the exception of my grandfather on my father's side. In my family, I have no relatives who are Christians. My mother's family is a very small one, but my father has a very large family tree. My family in a way, was shunned by most of my relatives, because they wanted nothing to do with the word of God. I watch my parents go every day knowing that if something dramatic doesn't happen in their family's lives, then, when they(my relatives) die, we will never see them again.
Is your grandmother a believer? If so, I am very happy for you, knowing that no matter what happens, you will spend an eternity with her. If not, I encourage you, to without ceasing, pray for and with her, to constantly bring her the good news.
For without God, we are all helpless.
