It's Hard to say Goodbye.

I am leaving today for a solo trip to saskatchewan to say goodbye to my grandma, Myrtle Branvold. I got a message yesterday saying that they are not expecting her to live past the end of the week. Her heart is weak, and she has pneumonia, she has lost her will to fight and seems like she is ready to be done in this life. 
Not sure if I am ready for the emotions of this trip. It feels like I only just met her and I haven't had enough time to know her.
I am profoundly sad.
