I go to school away from home (6 hour drive/1 hour flight) Wednesday evening, I get a call from my pops saying that my grandfather is in the hospital and might not make it. I book a flight back home for later that night. I stayed with my family throughout the night, went home and slept and got woken up early the next day because the hospital called and said my grandfathers last moments were coming. rushed to the hospital and stayed with family for a few hours until my grandfather passed away. my original flight back to school is booked for sunday, i have classes monday tuesday and wednesday, i also have 2 appointments (one with a doctor on campus and one with the career center) on monday i've already missed thursday and friday classes (which are, coincidentally, my least busy days of the week), however i have fairly important classes on tuesday and wednesday, and again, 2 appointments on monday. my pops said they're planning the funeral for my grandfather on tuesday or wednesday should i change my flight to be able to make my grandfather's funeral? I know these are one of the choices i have to make for myself, but i've never experienced a death in my closer family before, so i'm not sure what kind of an impact my grandfather's funeral would have on me if it means anything, i was close to my grandfather when i was younger, but towards my teen years my parents divorced and i lived with my mom and didnt see him as much, he started getting weak/ill and was never in the same state of mind (absent minded, apathetic, bad bad memory) so we drifted apart.
