Suggestions for loss: There is a book called "praying our goodbyes" by joyce rupp which you can use if you have a spiritual bent. You can also see a therapist for some grief counseling. I'm sorry for you loss and believe that you can feel whole again as you adjust. Peace and good health.

Not enough: info about your nan to know her fate. However, if she hasn't eaten or hydrated in two weeks and has been bed-bound it is high time for her to see the doctor. Take care.
