He is in congestive heart failure and is not a candidate for surgery. They managed to get 30 lbs of fluid off of him so he got to go home from the hospital but it is just a matter of time. They are setting up home health and we are pretty much being encouraged to say our goodbyes because we don't know how much time he has left. I know he is old and his health has been declining over the years but this still hurts. He is a good man and has always been in my corner and I am just going to miss him so much. And how is my grandmother going to cope? They have been married for 65 years.
Anyway, I just needed to type this out. My heart is broken today.

I'm so sorry...
My Dad died three years ago and he and my Mom were married for 64 years. It was so hard at first and my heart just broke for my Mom. Just be there for your Grandma and comfort each other. I have never experienced such grief and worry but it will get better eventually. Just try and take each day as it comes and allow yourself to grieve for your beloved Grandpa. Talk about him to your Grandma; we did a lot of "remember when" type of talking.
May God be with you in the coming days and may you find peace in your love and memories.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Granddaddy. It sounds like he's an amazing man.
My Dad died just over two years ago of heart disease. He wasn't a candidate for surgery either due to other health complications. It's hard to stand by and watch someone that you love and care about so much and not be able to do anything for them.

I'm so, so sorry. I lost my beloved Grandpa to complications of CHF as well, in 2001 and I still miss him.
