Many negative things are happening over here. My uncle, who lives just a few streets away from my house, fell down and there's just one issue after another following that accident. He's my mom's older brother and in his early 80s already. Although he has his wife and son with him at home to take care of him, the wife, that's my aunt, keeps calling up my mom to discuss medical care and stuff. They have another son who lives in another section of town, but he's the type who couldn't care less about his elderly parents, sad to say.

From my observation, when an elderly person falls down, that's the start of his declining health. I would say, that's the last leg of his life on earth or the final lap in this race. He knows it, we all know it.

It depresses me to see those in my life just drop away from the face of the earth, and somehow, it is happening more often over the past two years. Surely death is part and parcel of life but it is still painful even though he is not close to me in person, but in relation, he's in a high position.

The Chinese have a saying that in the sky, there is the God of Thunder, and on Earth, there is this uncle. So, you can imagine how important this position is in the family hierarchy.

Coincidentally, a couple of nights ago, I dreamt of my late maternal grandfather, the father of this uncle and my mom. He passed away more than 20 years ago, and I was never close to him, so I don't know why he came to my dream. I am someone who dreams often, and no, it's not due to heatiness. Unfortunately, some of my dreams can be rather dark, or of the other side of the realm. Sometimes, I have messages passed through me. It's weird but I have to ensure that their wishes are fulfilled.

My dogs who had died also visited me before in my dreams, happy with waggy tails, probably to let me know that they are all right. It was very reassuring.

This time, there was no message from my granddad. I just dreamt of him, and his face was vivid in the dream. Just recently, I was talking to a friend about dreams and whether we do see the real face of that person in our dream or if it is just blurred but we know that this dream person is that person in our real life. I thought that I had blurry faces in my dream, but not this time. It was sharp and clear.

And we also talked about my late granddad. I even mentioned how I was not close to him because his speaking style was difficult for me to comprehend, so we hardly communicated. I was just present at family gatherings or wherever I was required to, as a granddaughter. Did he appear in my dream because talking about him left him in my subconsciousness or is there another reason?

I'm writing all of these down to check back later to see how long more the inevitable will happen and if there is any link between that event to this dream. It's not something that I wish to happen or look forward to because the impact will be great on my mother, but then this is life, we just get recycled. It's like we all have an expiry date, but some last longer on earth than others. And this is my closing thought.

I'm sorry to hear about your uncle, I hope it wasn't a bad fall and he gets better. But you are right about what you said when old people fall down. I knew some people who experienced the same and their health deteriorated after some time. And you recording your dreams here maybe useful someday :)

I am very aware of the progression of life and how a fall for the elderly is usually the beginning of the end and I am very sad to witness it.

It was many years ago when I had dreams of my uncles and cousins, (I think), which made no sense to me, until they all met their deaths. I was rattled to say the least, and almost didn't want to sleep for fear I would dream again and the same thing would happen, again. Fortunately, and I guess prayers helped, those stopped. I do dream of my late Dad, although mostly nothing scary.

The Chinese believe that if we dreamt of person A dying, we must not let A know about that dream, or it will be a reality. I'm not going to test that!!!

Yup, I got your meaning in the first comment. Just sharing with you a Chinese belief. Imagine if you had told them, how guilty you would feel. I know I'd be, hence I will never test this!

I just pray the inevitable does not happen and anyone that still has either an uncle or an aunty of that age knows for sure that grave calling is almost a certain answerable call but all we beg is for more extension of life to these ones cos we love them, hold the dear as much as we still want to see them stay longer in life

You're so right, and it really impacts the entire family. Yet, it is inevitable.

This is so strange. I dreamed about my grandad 2 nights ago. He was alive. He tried to tell me something, but the strange thing was I saw him in my dream as he was as old as he would be today. I could not catch it what he wanted to tell me, because he was very old. It is not the first time he appeared in my dream alive.

This is strange to know and a little creepy too! If you don't mind, may I know if your granddad now fit and healthy and that if he wanted to, he could just lift up the phone to talk to you?

Ahh I got confused when you said he was alive. Yup, it sounded like your late grandpa was trying to transmit a message to you. Hope you can decode it.

Yes sorry I didn't say he was alive in my dream. I try my best to figure it out what was his message.

Speaking of dream, for some reason, my grandfather and grandmother (both dead already) appeared in my dream last night. I am also thinking till now what are they trying to tell me or what's the meaning of that dream and why all of a sudden, they visited me over my dream.

I don't think we will ever understand. I hope that in your dream, your late grandparents were pleasant and looked happy, that will be reassuring.

At that age, falls are dangerous, but it does not mean that he has reached his final stage, only that he should take more care to avoid falls with fractures. As for the dreams, I don't know if they are messages, I prefer to leave it as a good reminder.

The problem is that he has just been facing one issue after another following that and it's just all compounded to add to the initial problem. I still think that this is a reclining of health at the tail-end of life and it is very stressful.

Well, the problem is more serious, so it requires more care and attention, it is very difficult that task and have a lot of patience.
