On 26 december,22:00 o'clock my grandpa passed away after his stomach or his intestin exploded.I didn't expected that everything will happen so fast because he felt better after he took the holy communion and he started to eat liquids.I gave him soup and orange juice with the syringe and i was happy for every swallow he takes because i knew if he stops eating ,he does not have any chance to survive.
 With 2 hours ago before him to die he had so strong convulsions,all his body was shaking without control.I thought he will die but he calmed down and he felt asleep holding my mum's hand.
 She felt asleep too,i was at PC and i suddenly heard a bang...I couldn't understand where did come from because in the house nothing was moving so i thought maybe it's from my neighbours.I thought at my grandpa too but i looked at him and i didn't see anything strange (i had light just from the candle and PC).After 10 minutes my mum suddenly woke up and instinctively put her hand on my grandpa to see if he still breaths even though she didn't think or expect him to die in that day.When she screamed : "He doesn't breath anymore" i got panic and immediately i remembered about that strange sound and i realised it was him.When i opened the light i saw blood flowing from his mouth...i couldn't believe that sound was from his body even though we expected that he might do intestinal occlusion because since 1 week and a half he did not go to toilet ( i mean pampers).No medicament could do anything for him,to eliberate his stomach..from this problem,he made other complications.
 He was sick of Alzheimer ,Alzheimer is a form of dementia but their death is caused by other disease,complications made by it.For exemple,they forget to go to toilet or how to do it because they lose their logic.People with this disease may have trouble remembering things that happened recently or names of people they know. Over time, symptoms get worse. People may not recognize family members or have trouble speaking, reading or writing. They may forget how to brush their teeth or comb their hair.
 In his last 4 years,he didn't know that i was his nephew and my mum was his daughter,he thought she is his wife.He was speaking with us but without to know who we are for real.They forget everything in 2 minutes,even when my grandma was dead,he realised she died just when he was seeing her but after he moved to other room,he was singing and acting normal.When he returned back to her dead body,he got shocked and threw down his hat..
 Since he got sick, all his life was a confussion,he didn't  know where he was or who we are.
 Many times he has stolen my money from my bag and hide them in his socks...he was like a kid and when i've reproved him ,he was so sure that those are his money and put his head down,sad because of my accusation and because i made him this "injustice"(to take his money).
 Almost every week he was flooding the balcony because he used to water so many times the flowers until the water flowed from the flower pot and all the balcony filled up with water.
 It was a hard time for my parents but funny and nice for me because i am a too calm person and i really can't get mad in serious for an innocent person.
 After he died,they regret now every moment when they got mad with him but unfortunetely now it's too late.
 We had so many strange dreams and signs before him to die and my dog cried so much with 1 hour before...

 Rest in peace my dear grandpa,i will never forget you(the person before to get sick) and the person after you got sick because are 2 different persons for me.
 I will also never forget your little hand with cut fingers :(

P.S : the picture is taken with few hours before him to die

My dearest friend I'm sorry too for this incident. I lost my Grandpa and 2 uncles the last 2 and half years so I can understand how you feel. My thoughts are always with you and your family. Be strong and pray for his soul to enter the sky kingdoms. Big hug

Alzheimer is a disease very hard to deal with. My grand father died because of it too. And it was hard to see him forgetting little by little things that seems to us so obvious, and getting weaker and weaker.
May god bless his soul.

wooow really? and how did he die?because i know they don't really die of alzheimer,they die of other disease.

Alzheimer is basically a result of chemicals concentrated in the brain.It'a a rather modern disease since in the 20th century we made a big mistake in the way we decided to live (eat,feel,think etc). It's like diabitis. It doesn't kill you directly, though it can cause all the reasons to die from the side effects...

Well he died because of a cerebrovascular accident, caused by Alzheimer. And it was schoking too to see him die. But you're right, they do not die directly because of Alzheimer, but this disease pave the way to a lot of complications.

The Only man I got close to was old...because till this day I don't know ANY of my grandparents... I knew this man. Old man. Made a Living Of Selling Clothing in the street. In our home, we would gather together. Many times, I held his hand, and blessed him in the name of jesus christ. My dad took him with my good old riend s she's catch her flight at 3 in themorning. 1 day before, he got locked in a storage where he had the old chlothing. He said he was really hungry, slept over night hungry and cold. Wishing something, he grabbed a litter of soda, and drank it. Well, that dawn...my dad tok him, said goodbye to his sons wife and also best friend...on their way homec with us...he died....alone in the street, right beside my father who was driving his car...he said he felt strange feeling, and he couldn't drive, like someone else was driving, tried to control the stering wheel....the car, as he says firmly, tok control by itself, the man screamed...and started feeling warm in the car. He took his deepest breath and exhaled...dead in the spot. My dad was cared, shaking...told us what hapenned and where his body was....

Rest in Peace, My Dear Elias...You woke my Fashion for clothin..... I will Always remember you!! Kises, Because I know ur in heaven!.!
